Covington In Rhodesia


This is one of those "for the record" things, for those of you who are fascinated by such details:

I attested as a regular soldier in the Rhodesian Army on September 23, 1974, at Brady Barracks, Bulawayo. I was assigned serial number #726818 and I eventually achieved the rank of corporal.

Contrary to gibber, I was not a cook, although I certainly would not have been ashamed of it if I had been. As any genuine veteran can tell you, the cook is one of the most important guys in any unit.

I was attached until January 1976 at 1 OS Company at Llewellin Barracks in Matabeleland, which was the home base of the Rhodesian African Rifles, the army's main black unit. During that time period I went several supply convoy trips to the Northwest "sharp end" around Wankie and I also did a stint at 1 Air Supply Company out of New Sarum Air Force base in Salisbury, flying supplies to UNITA forces of so-called "anti-Communist" (read ordinary bush bandit as opposed to Soviet-backed bush bandit) Jonas Savimbi during the Angolan civil war.

My service record is adequate and no more. No medals, no Rambo crap. Nor have I ever claimed any different. My combat experience consists almost entirely of getting shot at.

On July 31st, 1975 my infant son George Lincoln Rockwell Covington died at the age of four months in the married quarters at Llewellin Barracks from a viral infection which came from our water supply in the Umgusa River. Our water purification equipment at the barracks was about 40 years old and in very poor shape due to the sanctions that made it almost impossible to get spare parts. Yes, Virginia, UN sanctions kill. Mostly children. Ask the people of Iraq and Iran. My American-born wife at the time suffered a mental and emotional breakdown from the death of our child from which she never recovered and left Rhodesia shortly afterward.

In January of 1976 I was served with a Prohibited Immigrant (PI) order from the Ian Smith government because of my activity with the Rhodesia White People's Party (RWPP).

These are the facts.

Ironically, Eric who was in Internal Affairs was actually a Keep Commander and much more Rambo-esque than I ever was.

My serial number was 727688, RLI. I was based in Salisbury and spent much of my time in fire bases as a paratrooper on the Mozambique border or on patrol. Driving around the mined roads was always interesting. It was certainly the most dramatic period of my life, although I have been a pilot in Antarctica too. You were gone a couple of months before I arrived. It's ironic to think that Smith's government was viewed as a white racist regime. The Amercans, British and South Africans would eventually have destroyed the place but there were traitors in Smith's government who were working for its downfall as well. Only a national socialist philosophy can help a white society survive the omniparasitic life-form that is the jew. Rhodesia and South Africa never had that and are now history. They were noble white experiments nevertheless.

Freedom's Sons, my god man, where do you come up with this stuff? Its the best shit I've read in some time, and that's an understatement. Publish, so I can buy this book before Amerika Collapses in an economic depression the likes of which the world has never seen.

I have food, guns/ammo, and water. Lets kill the bastards who destroyed this nation, and nuke the Washington sodomites.

From a South Cali man hungering for the collapse of what is, and dreaming of what is to come.

Let the jews and goat-dancers think whatever they wish about your modest beginnings defending our Race in military service in Rhodesia. Their opinions don't matter. My condolences for the death of your son; it certainly proves that UN sanctions do kill mostly children and that total geographic separation from filthy niggers is a vital matter of public health and safety. At least you helped defend more Whites against the jew and his pet primates in your youth than most of us have defended in ours. My having clubbed a few nigger attackers and some of their anti-White 'antiracist' enablers with fists or pool cues in a handful of bar fights when some uppity niggers got into the habit of showing up at some establishments in White neighborhoods in the 80s certainly pales in comparison to your actually having served in a military whose express purpose had been the preservation of Civilization itself by the preservation of White rule.
