November 2016 Edition


November 2016 edition

See, the conquering hero comes!

We have often been accused in the past of being too optimistic about the future, indeed there were many who thought we were being far too hopeful by stating in last month’s SCN that we thought there was a good chance that Donald J. Trump would be elected the 45th President of the United States – but he did it, HE DID IT!

The dark nightmare years of the Obama administration are now rapidly nearing their end, and the future, rather than only being a slight improvement as it would have been under Hillary Rodham Clinton, will instead herald a glorious new dawn – not just for the United States, but for the entire Western world! Make no bones about it, when Donald J. Trump stated that he intended to make America great again he meant it, and as his business career has demonstrated over and over again, when he sets out to achieve something he invariably succeeds in his aims. The Obama administration tried its best to weaken the United States and the West as a whole, but somehow America has managed not only to survive, but to survive with sufficient fortitude to elect a successor President who will not only halt the decline, but will reverse all the retrograde actions of the past eight years.

As we imply, by making America great again Donald J. Trump and his incoming administration will thereby make the West as whole great again. Throughout his campaign the President-Elect has accurately and defiantly identified the main threats to American and Western identity. The threat from the invading Hispanic hordes from across the Rio Grande may only affect the North American continent, but the threat from fundamentalist Islamic terrorism affects us all – and for obvious reasons this is something which Barack Hussein Obama could never be capable of counteracting!

Although it is the West as a whole which will benefit from renewed strong and determined American leadership in opposing Islamic expansionism (and also by defying the “Yellow peril” from the East we hasten to add), it is the English-speaking world, and Britain in particular, which will undoubtedly gain most and will have the most significant role to play in future. The President-Elect is intensely proud of his British ancestry – his mother was a Hebridean and he owns Golf courses in both Ayrshire and Aberdeenshire – and a closer “Five Eyes” alliance between the US, the UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand extending beyond mere security co-operation has already been mooted. At the time when Donald J. Trump’s victory was confirmed we issued a posting on FaceBook stating that he had the potential to be the greatest US President since that earlier larger-than-life character, Theodore Roosevelt, and perhaps even since the first US President to make America great on the world stage, John Quincy Adams. It was then pointed out to us that these were the only two US Presidents to have been married in Britain. The precedents are therefore encouraging!

In this regard the close relationship which has quickly built-up between the President-Elect and Nigel Farage – and indeed with other leading members of the successful Brexit campaign both within UKIP and within the EuroSceptic wing of the Conservative Party in the UK – is most exciting. We have often been critical of Nigel Farage in the past, specifically because of his apparent “Little Englander” attitude in opposing military action against expansionist Islam during the War against Terror (thereby seeming to welcome the Islamic invasion of Europe), but his evident conversion by so avidly supporting President-Elect Trump – who after all has unambiguously stated that he intended to “bomb the sh1t out of ISIS” - is a development which we can only praise!

There have however been two great disappointments concerning the timing of Donald J. Trump’s glorious victory, and that is that two great Western patriotic heroes died in the weeks prior to his triumph, namely Dennis Delderfield in the UK and Clive Derby-Lewis in South Africa (an obituary to Dennis Delderfield appears later in this edition of the SCN, and one to Clive Derby-Lewis will be appearing in next month’s issue). In one of his personal e-mails sent to this present writer only days before his death, Clive Derby-Lewis stated how overjoyed he was with Britain’s Brexit decision, and how he was subsequently hoping and praying that Donald J. Trump would be equally victorious. It is just a tragedy that he didn’t live long enough to see it.

As we stated in last month’s edition, a victory for Donald J. Trump would complete a hat-trick for patriotic forces around the West during 2016, following the Flag Referendum triumph in New Zealand and Britain’s magic vote to leave the EU. This hat-trick has now therefore been achieved! Thank you New Zealand, thank you Britain, thank you America!



The Springbok Club staged a trip to the Imperial War Museum in London last month, where the tour party inter alia viewed two special exhibitions entitled “Visions of War: Above and Below” and “Edmund Clark: War on Terror”, which revealed some very interesting facts about the more recent past. After this trip the Springbok Club party adjourned to a hostelry in Westminster for a most pleasant social evening and fruitful discussions about the organisation’s future activities.


Details regarding this year's Springbok Club annual UDI Day celebrations are as follows :-

Guest Speaker: Mr. PAT MURPHY

Date : Tuesday 22nd November 2016

Times : Assemble from 18.00 hrs onwards, main meeting to commence at 18.30 hrs.

Venue : THE SUTTON ARMS (the upstairs function room),

(Nearest underground station: Barbican. Turn left out of the entrance from Barbican station, then Carthusian Street is the first turning on the left, with The Sutton Arms diagonally opposite.)

Pat Murphy was born near Taunton in Somerset, and after leaving school trained as a fully qualified tool-maker at Fords of Dagenham, before joining the British Army in the early 1960s, originally in the Royal Army Service Corps. Upon the re-organisation of the Army the RASC became the Royal Corps of Transport, and Pat transferred to a Para RCT Company in the late 1960s.

He emigrated to South Africa in 1970 and joined the South African Army. He emigrated again in 1973, this time to Rhodesia, and joined the Rhodesian Army Service Corps, serving in various roles including Stores, Transport, Ammunition and Air Despatch. He finished his service as 2-i-c of the Services Training School in Bulawayo, and retired from the Army in 1981 with the rank of captain.

Pat returned to the UK in 1986, and currently lives in Norfolk. A widower with two sons and a daughter, his main interests are organising and hosting quizzes for various charities and dancing, especially English and Irish Folk Dancing and American Square Dancing. In his youth he was a member of the England Folk Dance teams that toured South Africa and numerous European countries. In more recent years he has run Irish dance workshops at many of the major English folk festivals.

In his talk he will tell something about his Rhodesian Army experiences during the Bush War.

More precise details will be given in next month’s SCN. The Springbok Club’s 2017 AGM will be held in central London during late January 2017. If you would like to stand for Committee or wish to suggest any items to debate, then please do not hesitate to contact us in this regard as soon as convenient.



The Swinton Circle was of course deeply saddened by the news of the death of our great friend and colleague Dennis Delderfield. As well as all the superlative work which Dennis undertook in organizing and running the New Britain movement, he was also a loyal and active supporter of the Swinton Circle, and the two organisations worked increasingly closely together during more recent years. Readers will undoubtedly have noted that in the latest few editions of the SCN we have stated that moves were afoot to merge the Swinton Circle with another patriotic organization, and we can now reveal that this other organisation was in fact New Britain, for preliminary merger talks had already taken place with Dennis. Following the sad news of his death Executive Committee members of the Swinton Circle have spoken to leading members of New Britain who have been eager that all of Dennis’s excellent efforts over the years should not be allowed to go to waste, and so the proposed merger has therefore now been officially agreed. What was planned to be the Swinton Circle’s big re-launch meeting in March will now therefore be the official foundation meeting for the new united movement – although it is possible that other activities will be staged by the merged organisation before then.



Most readers will also undoubtedly recall all the problems which the Swinton Circle endured last year through attempts to infiltrate and destroy the organisation by an outfit calling itself “LibertyGB”, which were revealed at a disastrous meeting held on 31st July 2015 which was gate-crashed and wrecked by this outfit who had sent out totally unauthorized “invitations” to several unsavoury extremist organisations with the aim of causing a violent disruption of this event. We subsequently learnt that this “LibertyGB” outfit had nominated a candidate for the Batley and Spen by-election, which as this election was caused by the horrendous murder of the sitting Labour MP, Jo Cox, and as all the main political parties had decided not to oppose Labour in this by-election because of the tragic circumstances which caused it, was therefore in shockingly bad taste. Furthermore it turned out that the candidate who the “LibertyGB” outfit had nominated for this by-election was the person who it was subsequently discovered had orchestrated the distribution of the unauthorized “invitations” to trouble-making extremists at the disastrous meeting of 31st July 2015, namely a certain Jack Buckby. We were therefore delighted to learn that “LibertyGB” and Mr.Buckby had been totally humiliated at this by-election by only receiving a derisory 220 votes! Even more embarrassing for “LibertyGB” was the fact that they were well beaten by a couple of other tin-pot extremist parties at this by-election, including the obnoxious “splittist” so-called “English Democrats” who had been one of the other unsavoury outfits who they had sent unauthorized “invitations” to in order to invade and wreck the Swinton Circle’s meeting! As our vile enemies are now apparently fighting amongst themselves, we can therefore only look on with glee!



We have recently received the following message from the SanWild Wildlife Sanctuary. It reads as follews :-

“The SanWild Lions.

“We survived South Africa’s Killing Fields.

“They survived the lion killing fields of South Africa and are very fortunate to be alive. Rescued in 2003 when they were confiscated by the authorities from illegal lion breeding and hunting operations these lions have been living peacefully in their respective prides. Caring for them however is a costly and very expensive operation and we urgently need your help to continue to provide for them. We will be most grateful for your financial support.”

Former New Zealand All Blacks Rugby coach Laurie Mains – who has also had considerable experience of coaching in South Africa – recently issued a most perceptive statement in which he predicted that South Africa’s days of being a Rugby super power were over, specifically because of the ANC regime’s insistence upon racial quota systems in sports. The decline in South African sporting prowess as a direct result of the disintegration of the country under ANC rule is of course something which we have been drawing attention to for years. The full text of Laurie Main’s statement can be found at :-



A Guildford Conservative Councillor, Christian Holliday, has recently called for the tightening of the Treason Felony Act so that in future all those who advocate joining alien international communities such as the EU could find themselves guilty of an act of treason. This has certainly been a brave action by Mr.Holliday, and indeed he has already faced calls to be suspended from his council caucus as a result of this. We however salute this common-sense proposal by Mr. Holliday. He would certainly seem to be a man to watch out for in future therefore! More details can be found at :-



We have recently received a most encouraging posting from our friends in the PEGIDA movement concerning their campaign to halt the building of alien mosques in the UK. It reads as follows :-

“Some wonderful news from Essex, where local residents have dealt with four illegal mosques in Redbridge, Barking & Dagenham and Havering. For legal reasons we cannot names the premises, since two of the cases will end up in court. Our short guide to dealing with illegal mosques can be found here :-

No.216 – Mr. ADRIAN SMITH of Durban

Adrian Smith was a leading pensions and investments consultant working for Volkskas Bank in Durban during the 1980s. A most friendly and sociable person, he was also a staunch and sincere South African patriot. Unfortunately his high-ranking position within the bank prevented him from being as active with the patriotic movement in the city at the time as he would have liked, but his behind-the-scenes support was no less valuable and appreciated. It would be very interesting to learn where he is now.

[ In the July 2016 edition of the SCN we featured Mr. Martin Schonteich in our “Where are they now?” section. We subsequently received information about the current circumstances regarding the German-descended Mr. Schonteich from two separate sources – but unfortunately the information which we received wasn’t very pleasant, for evidently he has not only decided to remain in the “new” South Africa, but has even accepted a position as a senior researcher in the Crime and Justice Programme at the Institute for Security Studies (ISS) in Pretoria. Furthermore, before joining the ISS Schonteich was employed as a public prosecutor with the Department of Justice of the ANC regime. As Martin Schonteich was an active member of the Conservative Party of S.A. during the 1980s, his subsequent radical change in political orientation has therefore surprised us greatly. We shall say no more.].



The Breitbart on-line news service has been much in the news recently as a result of President-Elect Donald J. Trump’s appointment of Breitbart’s executive chairman, Steve Bannon, as Chief Strategist. During recent years we have often been forwarded articles from Breirbart News, particularly in relation to the UK’s desire to leave the EU, but we must admit that previously we were not too aware of its nature. It may therefore be a good idea for us all to take a close interest in this news service’s ongoing reports. They can be accessed at :-





I am well aware that there were and are many grass-roots citizens who never supported the liberal campaign against the White South African dispensation and of course we really appreciate their support.

I wish to congratulate Britain with its decision in the recent referendum to leave the EU. It is a victory for nationalism, which will hopefully spread throughout Europe and even further.

Yours etc.,

Andries Breytenbach, Pretoria, Transvaal, South Africa




Today’s South Africa is truly a clusterfuck of the first magnitude. They were well warned but made the mistake of trusting de Klerk

Yours etc.,

“Loyalist”, Glasgow, U.K.




I congratulate Wayde van Niekerk and commiserate with his mother. There was no justification for taking out people's dislike of the former South African government on its athletes, any more than there was any justification for barring Muhammad Ali from the ring for refusing to join the US Army. Sport and politics can be kept separate.

The likes of Nelson Mandela were able to resume their political careers in the post-apartheid years while a whole generation of sportsmen, not all of them White, had been deprived of their sporting careers. I remember the absurdity of the late, great Sir Stanley Matthews being condemned by political hacks with big mouths and little talent for the crime of coaching and helping young Black footballers in South Africa.

Yours etc.,

Mark Taylor, London, U.K.




Congratulations to Great Britain for their wonderful performance at the recent Olympic Games!

Yours etc.,

Reg Watson, Lindisfarne, Tasmania, Australia




Dennis Delderfield, who sadly died on 21st October, was a lifelong British and Imperial patriot, whose non-stop activism for the patriotic cause and for Commonwealth friendship was a constant inspiration to all other British patriots who knew him.

Dennis was born in August 1926 at Hendon in north London, the son of Thomas and Elizabeth (née Taylor) Delderfield. His father had been a member of the Worshipful Company of Bakers, one of the oldest guilds in the City of London, and he followed his father into membership. He worked for most of his working career in the Corporation of London, being a Common Councilman of the City of London for 18 years. He also became editor of The City of London and Dockland Times, the City of London’s “local paper”.

It was however his patriotic activism which was his main lifetime’s achievement. Having become very disillusioned with Edward Heath’s leadership of the Conservative Party and Britain’s joining of the then Common Market (now the EU), he realised that there was a dire need for a reputable mainstream patriotic political party, and so in 1976 he founded New Britain. Dennis never suffered fools easily, and was determined to run New Britain the way he saw fit with as little delegation as possible. Although in many facets of life these would have been admirable qualities, in the running of a political party they alas proved drawbacks, and as a result New Britain never achieved the success which he had hoped or it deserved. Over the year, however, it did win a number of seats on local councils, and achieved a reputation and influence far greater than its actual size.

Under Dennis’s leadership New Britain gradually evolved from being a registered political party to becoming a patriotic pressure group, and here it obtained far greater success. Being part of the broader and growing Neo-Imperialist movement in the UK, New Britain staged annual events to mark Australia Day, New Zealand Day, Canada Day, Gibraltar Day and Falklands Battle Day, as well as the various saint days for the component parts of the British Isles. Dennis also ensured that New Britain commemorated the Battle of Trafalgar, the defeat of the Spanish Armada and Remembrance Sunday each year, and also initiated his own regular Goldsmith Lecture, in memory of the esteemed anti-EU stalwart Sir James Goldsmith He was of course delighted to live long enough to witness both the defeat of the Scottish Referendum on independence and victory in the Referendum for withdrawal from the EU, and in relation to the former New Britain also staged a spectacular “Keep the UK United” rally. His final campaign at the time of his untimely death was to try to persuade the Republic of Ireland to rejoin the Commonwealth.

Unfortunately Dennis never married, though happily he did enjoy a close relationship with an older woman which lasted for many years. Although he thus sadly had no children of his own, so great was the respect in which he was held by so many friends and colleagues from the City of London that he became godfather to some ten godchildren, all of whom he adored greatly. He was a High Church Anglican by persuasion, and took a great interest in the histories and architecture of all the numerous churches of the City of London. In his youth he was also evidently a keen fly-fishing angler and horse-rider, and was also a lifelong supporter and donator to the Royal British Legion and the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children. In addition he was also a loyal and regular attendee at the various events staged by both the Swinton Circle and the Springbok Club.

Dennis Delderfield was a great and tireless British patriot, whose memory must never be forgotten, and indeed must act as a continuing inspiration to all who knew him. Our sincerest condolences are therefore extended to his brother Alan Delderfield and to all his godchildren.

Dennis’s funeral will take place at 13.00 hrs on Wednesday 23rd November at the church of St.Lawrence Jewry in Guildhall Yard in the City of London, and all his friends and those who knew and respected him are warmly invited to attend.
