Regarding SADF nutria/browns uniforms, they are still available though I'm not sure in what quantities. If you check eBay and especially the RSA equivalent of eBay, you can find hundreds of SADF items including browns, webbing, stepouts, badges, flashes, etc. The items for sale on these web sites are generally used items but it seemed in the video that most of their clothing was brand new. I guess there is nothing stopping them from going to the original manufacturer and having them made to the old specs. Somehow all of the "recruits" seemed to have extra large size bush hats. I have some experience in this area and blood soaked and bullet riddled clothing would not make it back into the QM stores.
Back to the topic, this group does not warrant any publicity.
You can get unissued browns from certain surplus/militaria shops.
I'm not sure if any/all of these have been listed previously, but in the past year the following prior Rhodesian Service folks have been murdered in Southern Africa:
Mac McGuinness - Officer Commanding Selous Scouts Special Branch. Died 6 July 2011 in Pretoria from injuries received in a brutal attack at his home.
Keith Alan Nicolson - Selous Scouts. Died at Mazvikadei Banket 14 September 2011 in an attack by an armed gang.
Bobby Ervine – PATU. Died 8 April 2012, he did not recover from an attack by thugs on his farm in the Siplolilo (Guruve) area. His wife Barbie was with Women’s Police Reserve in the War.
Colin Zietsman - Centenary farmer. He was attacked and ruthlessly beaten by two intruders whilst he and his wife slept in their home 2September 2011.
Leon Du Rand - 2 Commando, 8 Troop RLI. Leon was murdered in his home in George, South Africa by burglars on 14 February 2012).
Thanks for posting these. Not all the murders here are recorded in the mass media as the police sometimes skew the statistics by calling it "general criminality" instead of what it is , violent murder.
And the ones happening in Zim does not reach the local papers , which is a travesty as far as I am concerned.
Some even went as far suggesting that this guy must be some kind of government stooge,or agent provocateur ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agent_provocateur ) given the amount of airtime this buch of nobodies seem to receive. Certainly,other serious/actual threats, "groups" that were closed down/members jailed very quickly,eg the "boeremag".Hence the big question mark!!
They certainly fit very neatly into gov propoganda of supposedly "how these white people want to return to apartheid"and similar baseless rubbish and combined with other race-driven politics....?Keeping in mind the the encumbent regime needs "race politics" to stay in power! (Thats all they have to offer after "liberation" ala zimbabwe).
As for the actual vid,couldnt get to watch more than a fraction of this drivel!I started laughing after "bloodsoaked bullet-ridden uniforms" and killed the download!
Rethorical statement:How many uniforms in that condition would actually make it to a surplus store?This, from a/any theater of combat,past the medical point to eventually,a qm store?Its simply "bad for business" and for obvious health reasons,would be destroyed,etc.(Modern day Iraq and Afganistan too I would presume?)
As for the posting of this vid:"JJHH",at face-value I'll take it that you didnt intend "trolling".This bunch of nuts found a convenient rally-cry with these farm-murders,but thats where the actual "relevence" ends!
Another perspective:these loons neatly deflect the attention away from the ongoing "rural youth developement" militia training for the anc's "youth league"(read zimbabwe).These guys and (techinically illegal) MK,all form a private army for a ruling party?What is that about? Between the fringe "rightwing" groups and the race-based politics of the government,they all need each other to survive.A very dangerous symbiotic relationship if you will.
Between them,they are,or are becoming irrelevent to the modern day SA,and serve as an unwelcome hinderence/obsticle for the future that our country potentially could have....
The answer?Please look past the media bias,old propaganda based perconceived perceptions and very convenient racial stereotypes!
