Rhodesia Independence Miniature Medal

Click HERE for Related Products...

On 11 December 1979 Rhodesia ceased to exist as an independent nation yet the spirit of the people who called themselves Rhodesians lives on.

Very trying times came to those living in Rhodesia between the declaration of independence on 11 November 1965 and the date when, for the first time in history, the British Government assumed control of the country under Lord Soames.

Those trials were the consequence of communist sponsored armed rebellion that was soured further by the promotion of international sanctions. Rhodesian determination under responsible government was to achieve majority rule progressively and cautiously. However, the British government yielding to African and Cold War pressures, demanded immediate majority rule.

No notice was taken of Rhodesia’s warnings that a one-party government whose leaders, driven by personal greed and corruption, would destroy the country.

In the face of apparently overwhelming adversity following UDI, Rhodesians fought to uphold their beliefs and an already robust Rhodesian spirit was lifted still higher bringing about the unique determination that resulted in continued economic growth for the first 12 years of Rhodesian independence.

This medal is supplied on a single pin ready to wear.
