October 2004 Edition.


October 2004 edition

Johnnie Howard's massive victory in the recent Australian general election has brought tremendous encouragement to all true patriots throughout the Western world. Not for the first time in recent years, Australians have set the agenda by demonstrating that Western ascendancy rather than liberal internationalism is the new zeitgeist.

Although the leftist establishment initially tried to claim that the ALP was heading for a decisive electoral win, and that it was the Liberal/National coalition's steadfast support for the War against Terrorism in Iraq which was the reason for this, the actual result was the complete opposite of course - indeed Johnnie Howard even managed to increase his majority by a significant margin! Leftist commentators then changed their stance completely, claiming that it was the economy rather than support for the War against Terrorism which was the reason for the coalition's triumph. This of course is nonsense; the War against Terrorism WAS the issue, and Australians proved that unlike the Spanish they were not appeasers and cowards.

The next big electoral battle will now of course be in the United States next month, when President George W. Bush (probably the greatest US President in our lifetimes - if not ever) will face a challenge from the sinister and dangerous Sen. John Kerry from the traditionally liberal state of Massachusetts. To paraphrase John Vorster, a victory for Kerry is too ghastly even to contemplate. Although opinion polls have recently been indicating that the result will actually be far closer than was previously imagined, hopefully the Australian general election result will have a significant "knock-on" effect in the United States, so that as a result President Bush will be comfortably returned to office in order to continue the struggle against international terrorism and to protect the freedoms of us all.

The whole Western world therefore has a great debt of gratitude to pay to the Australian people. On behalf of us all, thank you Australia.



Last month the London Branch of the Springbok Club staged a river trip along the Thames from Westminster to Richmond and back. A good contingent of Springbok Club members and supporters joined the party at Westminster, and were treated to a most informative guided commentary of all the riverbank sites which they passed along the route. Once at Richmond even more Springbok Club members joined the party, and all adjourned to a splendid riverside hostelry for lunch and a congenial gathering, before most of the party then returned down river again to Westminster.

The London Branch of the Springbok Club is therefore certainly to be congratulated upon organising such a successful day's activity. The next London Branch event is planned to be a trip to the University Boat Race next spring, which will be followed by an evening braai.



A contingent of Springbok Club members will be visiting Gibraltar later this month, the main reason being to express our complete solidarity with the Loyal people of Gibraltar in their determination to remain British, and it is hoped that several prominent Gibraltarians will be met during this visit. A full report of this trip will of course be given in next month's SCN.



The Northern Ireland Branch of the Springbok Club have now finalised arrangements for their UDI Day celebrations this year, which will take place during the afternoon of Saturday 6th November at Burnside in Co.Antrim, and at which a prominent Unionist MP will be guest of honour. For more details please e-mail the Northern Ireland Branch of the Springbok Club at:

On the mainland the Springbok Club will be staging their annual UDI Day Dinner during the evening of Monday 22nd November at a plush central London restaurant. The guests of honour this year will be prominent officials from the BSAP Association, and as it is anticipated that this event will prove to be more popular than ever we would ask all those wishing to attend to let us know as soon as possible. The evening will include a sumptuous three-course meal, and tickets are priced at £19.00 for Full Members of the Springbok Club, £22.00 for Associate Members, and £25.00 for non-members. If you would like to attend then please either e-mail us at, or write to us (together with the appropriate payment, made payable to "The Springbok Club") at: BCM SAPAT, London WC1N 3XX, U.K.



The Springbok Club is planning its annual Day of the Vow commemorations at a famous central London venue as close to December 16th as possible, and it is anticipated that we will be welcoming a highly-respected personality as guest of honour. Fuller details will of course be given in next month's SCN.

The Springbok Club is also planning to stage another visit to the British Empire and Commonwealth Museum in Bristol early during 2005, and to stay overnight at a hotel run by good friends in south Gloucestershire. Again further details will be given in future SCN's.

Date : Thursday 14th October 2004

Time : 19.00 hrs

Venue : The Clarence (the upstairs "Parliament Room"), 53 Whitehall, Westminster, London SW1

The world's elephants have been decimated over the last century, largely as a result of being hunted for their tusks. In Africa, the elephant population has shrunk from 1.3 million in 1980, to possibly as few as 400,000 today. In Asia there are fewer than 50,000 remaining in the wild.

But these tragic numbers only tell part of the story. Elephants, which are highly intelligent and socially complex animals, suffer great trauma when family groups are ripped apart by poachers. In addition, poaching for ivory can have a drastic impact on a population's ability to reproduce. This is a particularly severe problem in Asia, where only male elephants have tusks. In some areas, females already outnumber adult males by more than 100 to one.

Although the international trade in ivory was banned in 1989, at the 2002 CITES* meeting the sale of 60 tonnes of stockpiled ivory from Botswana, Namibia and South Africa was approved in principle, despite opposition from many other governments and organisations, including IFAW.

IFAW fears that such a sale will spark a wave of illegal poaching. Already the number of seizures has increased in the wake of this announcement, with the largest ever haul of poached ivory since the 1989 trade ban uncovered in Singapore in 2002. Six and a half tons of ivory was captured in this instance, which may represent as many as 300 dead elephants!

We must take action now to ensure this sale does not go ahead!

An Early Day Motion (EDM) has been tabled in Parliament to draw attention to the proposed sale and calls for urgent action to prevent this and future sales from occurring. EDMs can often attract a great deal of publicity and raise the profile of the issue to a point where it can't be ignored by the government. To date, the EDM has generated the support of 260 MPs, but we still have time to gather more momentum.

Please send a letter to your local MP asking them to support EDM No. 422 calling for the the sale of ivory to be banned.

Time is running out for elephants - every message counts!

"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.71 : Brig. PAT LAWLESS

Brig.Pat Lawless was born in 1955 and raised in Nyasaland and Rhodesia, and was educated at St.Stephen's College near Bulawayo. He was commissioned into the 1st Battalion Rhodesian African Rifles in 1975 and served on operations with the Battalion as a rifle platoon commander, mortar platoon commander and operations officer. He qualified as a paratrooper in 1977, and was awarded the Silver Cross of Rhodesia in 1980. He joined the British Army in 1981, training as an army pilot. He was posted to Germany, and completed a number of tours of duty to Northern Ireland. Promoted Lieut.Col. in 1992, Pat Lawless completed a 6-month tour in Angola working for the FCO. On his return he assumed command of 9 Regiment Army Air Corps in North Yorkshire, then part of 24 Airmobile Brigade. His tour of command ended in 1994 when he was posted to the Army Staff College as a member of the Directing Staff and Warfare Team Leader. He joined the HQ of the ACR Rapid Reaction Corps in Sarajevo in 1996 on promotion to Colonel, and conducted the Functional Review of HQ ARRC in the early half of 1997, before moving to HQ Adjutant General to take up the appointment of Col. AG O&D in December 1997. He attended the Higher Command and Staff Course in January 1999, taking up his next appointment as Deputy Commander and Chief of Staff of the new Joint Helicopter Command on promotion to the rank of Brigadier. He resigned from the Army in 2000, and became the Chief Executive of a UK based Defence Company, THOMRO Defence Electronics Ltd. He is married to Cherril, has 3 sons, is a qualified rugby referee, and was President of the Army Air Corps Rugby Club. He was Guest of Honour at the Springbok Club's 2000 UDI Day Dinner, but unfortunately both of his known e-mail addresses now seem to be unrecognised, and mail sent to his last known address at Durrington in Wiltshire has recently been returned. Does anyone therefore know how he can now be contacted?



Although Jan Lamprecht's excellent "African Crisis" web-site is regularly advertised in the SCN in the "Book Offers" section, it has never previously been our official "Recommended Web-Site of the Month". Recently, however, we have heard the most disturbing news that Jan been subjected to a vicious smear and intimidation campaign targeting his web-site, which has almost certainly been orchestrated by agents of the ANC regime (an experience, of course, not unknown to the Springbok Club). Jan's site therefore currently warrants more support than ever, but even so it is always well worth a visit, as it is justifiably referred to as "Africa's Premier Hard News Web-Site".

Appeasement is all about giving in. People like Ian Smith and Winston Churchill tried to defend their people and culture, they were few and far between. The appeasement of others has sold us all down the drain.

This is where a century of appeasement has took my family :-

When Southern Ireland was given independence my family got booted off their farm, in fact it was burnt down, they were lucky to escape with their lives! They were Irish but they were the wrong sort of Irish, like hundreds of other Irishmen they fled to Ulster, England, the USA or the colonies! My family moved first to England, then took up an opportunity to move to Kenya, where they ran a farm. My father joined the Kenya Police and became a senior officer, but he was sacked a few years after independence. It was the same old story. He was Kenyan born and bread... he just wasn't the right sort! He moved to Rhodesia with his family, bought a farm, two of his sons became farmers, I joined the BSAP. In 1982 I was sacked, I was Zimbabwean, I was just the wrong sort! I moved to South Africa and took a job in IT. In 2001 my brother lost his farm, he was Zimbabwean he was just the wrong sort! In 2002 I lost my job, the wrong sort of South African's were over represented. Decades of hard work, generations of blood, sweat and tears gone to waste!

I have set up my own business but others are less fortunate than me. My sister lives with her husband and three children in a rented house in Harare, shared with two other families. My grandmother festers in a badly run home for the elderly in Cape Town. I have family all over the world. A diaspera from not one but a half dozen different countries where they were the "wrong sort" of colour or religion!

An entire community (20-25% of the population) in Southern Ireland has been destroyed (they no longer exist as a community - 1.5% at the last census!). In Kenya the same has happened, entire villages vacated. In Zimababwe it has been taking place for the last 14 years, Whites who once made up 20% of the population now account for about 0.3%. In South Africa the same is happening, in Namibia too.

Ian Smith was right, those who sold him out, those who failed to back him, those who believe or believed he was wrong live in clowd cockoo land!

Yours etc.,

Graham, U.K.




I live in Sunnyside, Pretoria. It is a residential area consisting of mainly blocks of flats, Pretoria's "Hillbrow".

During the last 5 years the area become 98% Black with a large percentage of foreigners, Nigerians, Kenyans, Angolans (recognized by their "African Portuguese").

Sure, I don't like my neighbours or the rest of the crowd in the area. But the area is as well maintained and peaceful as 8 years ago. The service in the banks, post office, etc. is not as prompt as it used to be and you often get helped with an "attitude". But by and large, life goes on. It is not: "... a breakdown in law and order far worse than that in "Zimbabwe..."

I live here without being hassled. Last night was month end, Friday. A friend invited me for a drink at a local restaurent a few blocks up the road. We walked there at 18h30 (dusk) and back at 19h30 (dark). I had my reservations; the streets were busy with scores of Blacks at the public phone booths and grocery stalls on the pavements. Nobody bothered us.

Do people get mugged here? Yes sometimes, especially if they look for trouble. But they also get mugged is all other big cities in the world.

A friend of mine who lived in the same block and who walked with an expensive gold chain around his neck, a revolver on his hip and an arrogant attitude. The same friend and his girlfriend got mugged while walking back from a pub 03h00 in the morning, half drunk. (Drunk people are easy targets.) His girlfriend got mugged at month end walking home with her purse under her arm.

Although you can't take your safety for granted, if you are cautious and keep a low profile, you are unlikely to be hassled.

What does the future hold? I don't know. Although South Africa is not like Zimbabwe (yet), I can't say that it won't become like that in 20, 10, 5 years. Blacks may decide to do widespread pogroms against Whites tomorrow. Who is going to stop them? The socialistic style goverment may ruin the economy the same way communism did Russia and Zimbabwe. I am not very optimistic.

Yours etc.,

H.W.K., Pretoria, Transvaal




I couldn't care less what the smear artists say.....somewhere someone is very worried about the RESPECTABLE SUCCESS the Springbok Club is having.

Let us just carry on as if we had never heard of these people......they call BUSH a nazi fact anyone that uses white

My thanks,

Whilst not disagreeing with the thrust of the letter and sentiments to [Jack] Straw, it should be remembered that the Israelis do engage, big time, in the release of terrorists. It is not unusual to see hundreds, yes hundreds, of Arab terrorists being released by the valiant Israelis in return for 1 or 2 of their own men, and sometimes even only for Israeli corpses.

However, I wholeheartedly agree with their attitude towards terror, hit 'em harder than they hit you. If it was seriously tried elsewhere it would pay dividends.

Yours etc.,

James D., St.Helier, Jersey




The South African Government is desperately trying to get Whites to take their skills and money back into the country. "The Home Coming Revolution" is aimed at losers who couldn't make it in their new homes after immigrating, and they go skulking back with their tails between their legs, bitter and blaming their new homes for their failure.

What they don't get told is that they are returning to a country which is more anti-White and dangerous than ever before, and that they are being lured back with ridiculous promises. They might as well be told, "Turn your lifeboat around and come party with us on the Titanic!"
We who have escaped would do well to warn people against the folly of going "home" to the slaughter.

Yours etc.,

Robin J. Elliott, Vancouver, Canada



Most readers will no doubt be aware that Arthur "White Kaffir" Kemp has been continuing with his pathetic smear campaign against us - though thankfully few if any people seem to have taken his unsubstantiated libels about us seriously. We now know for a fact that he has been using the nom-de-plume of "Richard Jones" in order to spread his poisonous lies, and believe that he has also used the pseudonyms of "Willem Steenkamp" and "Chris Els" as well - so we therefore wonder if anyone knows whether these people actually do exist?

We have not been the sole victims of this notorious young man's irrational hatred however. In the August 2001 edition of the SCN we reported that Portuguese patriots had been "up in arms" because of Kemp's claims in an esoteric paper that he had written, in which he basically libelled the entire Portuguese nation. Now comes news, however, that Greek patriots have also been greatly angered by derogative comments which Kemp made about their nation in the same work.

The full rebuttal of Kemp's attacks upon the Greek people can be found at :-

It was with great sadness that we recently learnt of the death at the age of 83 of Edward "Ted" Sutton-Pryce.

Ted Sutton-Pryce was a Rhodesian Front MP who served in the UDI Government of Ian Smith, rising to the rank of Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister's Office, where he was charged with co-ordinating all civil aspects of the Bush War, particularly the protection of the farming community. Ted Sutton-Pryce gained a most praise-worthy reputation as being one of the more determined and strong-willed supporters of UDI, and doubtlessly if more possessed similar steely backbones the Rhodesian struggle may have obtained greater success. Even after the fall of the country to the terrorists Ted Sutton-Pryce still maintained his active support for the Rhodesian cause however, being for many years National Chairman of the Flame Lily Foundation in South Africa, and maintaining active support for the organisation until his final days.

Ted Sutton-Pryce's son Lawford was no less of a Rhodesian patriot, being a highly-respected RTV presenter and an organising genius behind the Anglo-Rhodesian Society. Patriotism therefore seemed to run in Ted Sutton-Pryce's genes. We hope that it will continue.
