October 2005 Edition.


October 2005 edition

The proposals contained in the new UK Terrorism Act are of course most welcomed. At a time when Britain - and indeed the whole of the West - faces the greatest threat from expansionist Islam since the Middle Ages the response to it must be ruthless, and no quarter can be given to any who plan, enact, advocate or glorify acts of terrorism. If anything many of the proposals in this new Act do not go far enough - though to be realistic nothing more could really be expected from a Labour government in hock to its own sickly appeasing left-wing.

One very strange and unexpected outcome has resulted from the opposition of the usual leftist elements to this Act however. Both the unspeakable Ken Livingston and Shami Chakrabarti (the elfish spokeswoman for the mischief-making "Liberty" outfit) have spoken about the so-called "Mandela Test" - by which they will judge the legislation by whether it would effect those who praised the South African terrorist leader "Nelson" Mandela or not. By so doing these trouble-makers have actually scored a spectacular own goal, for they have reminded - or perhaps informed - everyone about just what an evil terrorist Mandela actually was.

It has for long mystified us why so many people seem to be so unaware of Mandela's terrorist past (he was convicted of terrorist offences in 1963 after being caught red-handed with enough explosives to blow-up half of Johannesburg, and sentenced to life imprisonment) when he was obscenely imposed upon South Africa as "president" in 1994. These same people seem only too willing to condemn Mandela's terrorist blood-brother Mugabe, but for the life of us we can't understand what the difference is between them, for their histories confirm that they are like two peas out of the same pod.

A terrorist is a terrorist is a terrorist. Adams, McGuinness, Saddam Hussein, Osama bin Laden, Mandela, Mugabe (and we deliberately choose two White, two Brown and two Black to show that colour and race simply don't enter into it), their terrorist crimes are all the same. They all deserved to be executed for their evil acts of terrorism against innocent civilians, and the world would undoubtedly now be a far better place if this had happened to them all years ago.

We hope that the proposed new anti-terrorist legislation will be enacted in the strongest form advocated - but hope even more so that the unintentional faux pas's of Livingston and Chakrabarti will alert as many people as possible to the true evil nature of the terrorist Mandela.



In September the Springbok Club welcomed Mr. Michael Brufal de Melgarejo, the 9th Marques de Lendinez, as guest speaker. The Marquis de Lendinez, who was born in Gibraltar and has been an energetic advocate of the Gibraltarian cause all his life (now being a Director of the "Friends of Gibraltar Heritage Society") gave an eloquent and most enlightening speech about the recent history of the Rock, and how defiant and imaginative pressure from the Government and people of Gibraltar, and by their masses of supporters in the UK, had stymied plans by the Blair government to sell-out the Rock by agreeing to "share sovereignty" with Spain. Of more specific interest, he also told the history of how Gibraltar had been twinned with the town of Goole in Yorkshire, and how this had recently been confirmed in spite of sinister attempts by certain elements in the Foreign Office to deny it.

This proved to be a particularly successful meeting for the Springbok Club, with several new members joining as a result.



A small delegation from the Springbok Club will be visiting Gibraltar towards the end of October in order to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar. Several events are being organised in conjunction with the Gibraltar Heritage Trust, including a wreath-laying ceremony at the Trafalgar Cemetery on Friday 21st October, at which wreaths will be laid on the graves of the two sailors who fought at Trafalgar and who died of their wounds who are buried there - one on behalf of the Springbok Club and the other on behalf of the London Swinton Circle.

A full report of this trip and the activities attended will be included in next month's, SCN.



On November 5th a party of Springbok Club members will be attending the annual Lewes Bonfire Festivities, which this year, being the 400th anniversary of the Discovery of the Gunpowder Plot, will have even greater significance than ever. Again full details will be reported in next month's SCN.

On Monday 21st November the Springbok Club will be staging their annual UDI Day Dinner in central London, when the Guest of Honour will be a most interesting personality who is currently closely involved with the international court cases being conducted on behalf of the dispossessed commercial farmers of Zimbabwe. Tickets for this event (which will include a three-course meal plus coffee) are priced at £20.00 for full members of the Springbok Club, £24.00 for Associate Members and £28.00 for non-members. All cheques should be made payable to "The Springbok Club" and sent to: The Springbok Club, BCM SAPAT, London WC1N 3XX, UK - or alternatively 'phone: 07711-188430 to make a booking.

The Springbok Club's annual Day of the Vow commemorations have provisionally been set for Thursday 8th December 2005. Further details will be given in next month's SCN.



Because of failing health Mr. David Williams has been forced to resign as Branch Development Officer. He will, however, remain a member of the Springbok Club's Executive Committee, and has been offered - and accepted - the position of Honorary President of the Springbok Club.

Alas Dave Williams's failing health has meant that the Branch Development Department has been very inactive for the past few months. It is hoped, however, that a replacement Branch Development Officer will be appointed before the end of the year.



The Northern Ireland Branch of the Springbok Club will be staging a joint UDI Day/Day of the Vow meeting this year. For fuller details please e-mail:

The London Branch of the Springbok Club is planning to hold a meeting before the end of the year when one of their leading members will be giving a talk on early Anglo-Saxon history. More details will be given in next month's SCN.

Both the Kent and Chilterns branches of the Springbok Club are hoping to stage get-togethers early in the new year. It is anticipated that a well-known personality from the British patriotic movement will be present at the Chilterns Branch gathering.



Although staged under the auspices of the supportive publication "Tough Talking from the Right" rather than the London Swinton Circle itself, a buffet was held recently in central London where Mr. Ashley Mote, the Independent UKIP MEP for south-east England, was the guest of honour. This proved to be a most successful event, with a packed hall, delectable buffet snacks, and a most informative speech from Mr. Mote in which he outlined many of the financial scandals affecting the EU, and forecasted the eventual demise of the whole appalling structure.

Details of the next two London Swinton Circle meetings are as follows :-

Date : Tuesday 25th October 2005

Time : 19.00 hrs.

Venue : The House of Lords, Westminster. (Enter the Houses of Parliament via the St.Stephen's entrance, then ask officials in Central Lobby to direct you to the House of Lords committee room where Lord Stoddart with be speaking.)

For more than 40 years, the African Wildlife Foundation (AWF) has focused exclusively on the continent of Africa. Through these years AWF has played a major role in ensuring the continued existence of some of Africa's most rare and treasured species such as the elephant, the mountain gorilla, rhinoceros and cheetah. AWF has invested training and resources in African individuals and institutions that have gone on to play critical roles in conservation. We have significantly increased scientific understanding of Africa's extraordinary ecosystems through research. We have pioneered the use of community conservation and conservation enterprise to demonstrate that wildlife can be conserved while people's well being is also improved.

African wildlife and wild land conservation programmes receive an extra boost from individuals who've agreed to make donation. It's their support that give the ability to take advantage of new conservation opportunities and the resources to respond quickly to wildlife emergencies. Making a little donation is the simplest, most cost-effective way to support African wildlife-saving work. Become a Supporter and save African animals!

Our successes are notable over the past 40 years, but the wildlife and wild lands of Africa need your help now more than ever. Your help protects endangered African animals, provides emergency relief to African animals in crises.

The Argentinian publication "Clarin" recently carried a major interview with Sir Lawrence Freedman over his official history of the Falklands War. The title is a quote from him "Argentina shouldn’t have invaded the Malvinas Islands [Falkland Islands]". It was a fair interview, and there are no real problem for the Falklands in it. He is asked about the doubts he mentioned over Britain’s claim to the Islands (which the Daily Mail had said he was undermining), but he replies basically that it is a fact that there were doubts about Britain’s claim then, which he wasn’t the first one to point out. But he goes on to say that he also says that the Argentine claim was "fragile" then. He says that he argues in favour of confidence in the British claim. He says that Britain’s main problem wasn’t its doubts about its title to the Falklands, but doubts over the viability of maintaining such an overseas territory, which Argentina felt strongly about. Perhaps his main criticism of Britain is that just before the war the intelligence services failed to understand the link between Admiral Anaya and the Navy and President Galtieri who all felt so strongly over the Falklands (which led to the invasion). He dismisses the conspiracy theories over the sinking of the General Belgrano.



This November will mark the 40th Anniversary of U.D.I. and to mark this important event I want to hear from you. Where were you on that November day? What were your thoughts about U.D.I and the lead up to the momentous announcement, either for or against? If you weren't in Rhodesia at the time let me know what brought you to the country after U.D.I.

I am a Rhodesian born and breed and am currently engaged on writing a PhD for the University of London on Rhodesia's road to Independence, and I want to hear from you all. By studying the histories, government papers and biographies of the leading figures of the time I can piece together what was in the mind of the leaders on both side, but what I want to know was what was in the mind of the ordinary Rhodesian. This is your chance to have your say. Any and all information is most welcome as my thesis will only be as good as the sources I have to work from.

If you want to send me your thoughts please do so to I would be happy to supply a 'phone number for anyone who wants to talk directly to me and I will be happy to meet face to face with anyone in the UK. I will also consider travelling to any part of
the world to hear your thoughts.

I will be happy to provide more information on my project to anyone who is interested, and to answer any questions you may have.

Thanks for your time and I hope to hear from you soon.

Yours sincerely,

Julian Francis

The 58th annual regimental dinner of the UK Branch of the BSAP Regimental Association took place last month in central London. The Guest of Honour at the spectacular event was General Sir Michael Walker GCB, CMG, CBE, ADC Gen., the Chief of the Defence Staff. In a most enthralling after-dinner speech General Sir Michael Walker recalled many anecdotes which he had heard from his father Bill Walker (who of course was a serving officer in the BSAP prior to WWII, and the Recruiting Officer for the service at Rhodesia House in London during the 1950s), as well as telling something of his own early service in the army. Special guests were also invited from the Northern Rhodesian Police Association, the Rhodesian Army Association, the Rhodesian Air Force Association and the Springbok Club, and a few pictures from this event now appear on the "Latest Rhodesian News" web-page, which can be accessed at :

"WAY OUT OF LINE" by Trisha Jackson is a novel which tells the story of the profound impact that an innocent youthful love affair has on the lives of two young lovers. The plot moves from a cult and a maximum security prison in the US to the savannah grasslands of Mozambique and Zimbabwe - this makes for adventure, suspense and melodrama. Packed with conflict and sexual tension, anyone who loves romance, passion and excitement should enjoy reading this story.

Trisha Jackson was born and grew up in Rhodesia. She immigrated to the USA with her husband and three children in 1990. She and her husband live in a unique, rural community in the Tonto National Forest in the eastern mountains of Arizona.

The compelling story of what really happened in a defeated Japan following the end of World War II. Merchant seaman James Mackay, whilst travelling in the east, started to hear stories of massacres and other atrocities committed by Japanese forces, not just against enemy troops, but against innocent civilian populations. His subsequent investigations revealed reluctance amongst Allied governments to discuss these incidents that seemed to amount almost to a cover-up. Why would the Allies want to overlook the crimes of a former enemy, especially when the leadership of another former enemy was being liquidated at Nuremburg? Using his own research, as well as material prepared by Australian Army war crimes investigator Capt. J.G. Goodwin, Mackay exposes the cover-up and names the guilty. Not only were the Japanese keen to sweep the past under the carpet, but the US government of the time also had its own reasons for preserving the political and industrial elite in Japan. A provocative book, which calls into question the morality of US policy towards Japan after WWII.

No.83 : Miss PAULINE SHAW of Durban

Pauline Shaw, like the rest of her family, was a staunch South African patriot, and an active member of Ivor Benson's "National Forum" during the late 1970s. She was also a breath-taking beauty in spite of her diminutive stature - and indeed was a finalist in the UND Rag Queen competition of 1978. Her father was a medical doctor, and her family hailed from Gingindlovu on the Natal north coast. In late 1978, however, she became very active in a Durban-based charismatic church called "The Invisible Church", and dropped out from all political activity as a result. It later came to light that she was closely romantically involved with the pastor of this church, though it is uncertain whether this ever resulted in marriage. During the early 1980s, however, a financial scandal evidently engulfed this church and it collapsed. A number of old friends, however, would be very keen to learn what ever became of Pauline Shaw.



With the coming to power of the ANC and the consequent seeming irrelevancy of White politics in South Africa, it was natural to assume that the HNP had become defunct - indeed we had heard nothing from or about them since the mid-1990s. It was therefore most surprising - and pleasing - to be informed recently by a supporter that the party's weekly newspaper, Die Afrikaner, continues in publication, and furthermore has a very impressive web-site. This should prove very interesting to Afrikaans-speaking readers, and can be accessed at :-





It was good to attend yesterday's LSC meeting and to be able to put forward my question concerning the supreme importance of the teaching of the suffering of our Protestant forebears and the role of the Papacy and Romanists in seeking to undermine our country from the Armada invasion of 1588, the gunpowder plot of 1605 and the actions of the Jesuits, to the Papacy's conspiracy against the interests of the United Kingdom during World Wars I and II - not least its complicity with the Nazis.

However, weak-kneed attitudes will not serve the well-being of our country and its people, and I must confess that I found Mr. Hilton burbling on about "extremists" and not being able to use the word Protestant as very uninspiring and indeed quite depressing. It is not Protestantism based upon the word of God as expressed in the Holy Bible that needs to hold its head in shame, bearing in mind that our breaking from the stranglehold of the Roman Catholic Church was followed by the growth of the British Empire and our industrial development (and indeed Huguenot French Protestants sought refuge here after the persecution of Louis XIV), but rather Romanism and Romanists who think it right to betray ones country and sovereign at the whim of a piece of paper written by a foreign bishop in a foreign city, engage in acts of terrorism and intimidation such as the Jesuits and the Irish Republicans, and in place of the Holy Bible have idolatry superstition and so-called "bleeding statues" of Templemore. I think that Mr. Hilton, who has first-hand experience of being ejected from the Conservative Party for a mild criticism of Vatican activities after some undue false indignation from the "Catholic Herald", should know better than to believe that we can defeat the thought-police by going along with what they want, and certainly we should be grateful for having a British and Protestant Crown instead of a Papal Tiara Crown, which undoing the Act of Settlement of 1701 will bring about. However, Rome has advanced its tentacles too far already, with the United Kingdom being properly Great Britain and [all] Ireland. The Anglican Church of Ireland must be re-established to amend the betrayal of Irish Protestants by that madman and traitor William Gladstone.

As for the "Catholic Herald" bleating to the Conservative Party about "bigotry" and "hatred", it would do better to remember its own history, not least its former editor, the odious Charles Diamond, who wrote "Killing, No Murder: It is more human to despatch a heretic to his own place than let live to spread contagion amongst others", concerning the attempted murder of the Viceroy and Lord Lieutenant of Ireland Lord French, an article condoning murder of non-Catholics for which he got 6 months imprisonment - through he should have been shot himself for incitement to murder the Crown's representative in Ireland. Our ancestors showed courage and resolution in dealing with traitors and terrorists and so must we.

You mention a Mike Smith of Portsmouth; no idea who he is and can't say I've ever heard of him. His "CDA" is I imagine one man and a dog - but with a computer he can give the impression of being much more.

I'm more distressed than amazed at the numbers of odd-balls and weirdoes that continue to surface here, to form groups, parties, fronts and the like that last a few months or so, then split, have coups, or just simply disappear, to re-form a month or so later under a new name and leadership, but with new plans (or plots)!

Well said. The Spaniards threw the Muslims out in 1492 and we can do it now!
