For Ourselves And Our Posterity
Published on 15 Jun 2023 / In People and Blogs

This is a great series by John Van Zyl on Rhodesian Fighting Men, preserving their history and the legacy of freedom. We have not forgotten Rhodesia. We are all Rhodesia now.

"Neall Ellis HC is a South African military aviator and mercenary. Raised in Bulawayo, he joined the South African Air Force after a brief stint in the Rhodesian Army. As a helicopter pilot he was awarded the Honoris Crux decoration in 1983, and later attained field rank. After retiring from the SAAF he contracted for various private military corporations, including Executive Outcomes and Sandline International. During the civil war in Sierra Leone, he and his Mi-24 crew held off Revolutionary United Front (RUF) forces almost single-handedly. He also provided fire support for British troops during Operation Barras."

"When you read how he got his Honoris Crux, then you realise what an absolute hero that this man was/is"

"What characters and heroes Rhodesia has produced, some of the best fighting men ever!"

Africa was better for the service of men like Neall Ellis and his European comrades.

We need to show the same mettle as our predecessors and ancestors. Never give up, and never forget.
