Birth & Upbringing: Born 1952.
Military Service: The BSA Police was very much a para-military service and was the nation's first line of defense. Young policemen were thus thrust into armed conflict during the insurgency of the later 1960's and the decade which followed. Those who appear on the BSA Police Roll of Honour (War) are afforded full military honours in the true sense.
The Support Unit of the British South Africa Police was a military organisation of Brigade strength and it sole purpose was to participate as infantry in anti terrorist insurgency operations alongside the Rhodesian Army. The Support Unit was a highly successful disciplined unit.
Occupation: Policeman - joined the BSA Police in January 1975; Reg. No. 23090; served until August 1979. He went directly into Support Unit.
Demise: KOAS - vehicle accident while serving as a Constable with Support Unit in Rusape (Operation Thrasher).[1][2]. See also Constables A Kufazvineyi and M Maranduse who were killed in the same accident. [3]
Burial: His semi-military funeral was held at Warren Hills Cemetery, Salisbury, on 31 August 1979.
