"Sit Nomine Digna - May It Be Worthy of the Name"
The Republic of Rhodesia certainly was, regardless of what "professional journalists" will say about it. With all her citizens in mind, both black and white, they fought the scourge of communistic terrorism in a vicious Bush War. They did this while keeping age old tribal feuds at bay, maintaining the highest standard of living, and strongest economy in Africa. They built railways, roads, cities and civilization in a region of Africa that had been desolate since the collapse of the Great Zimbabwe in the 15th century. They did this all, in less than 100 years. The claim that this story is about "white supremacy", is historically illiterate at best, and viciously racist at worst.
The Rhodesian Army had fought a highly motivated enemy, armed by Communist China and the Soviet Union respectively. They did so on a shoestring budget. Regardless of the politics, they fought admirably in exceptionally difficult circumstances. To this day, the vertical envelopment tactics of the "Fireforce" from which our company draws our name, is studied at the highest levels of academic military theory. The story of the Rhodesian Army is one that should be studied, and memorialized regardless of your politics. Fireforce Ventures recognizes the sacrifices of the men and women who fought so valiant during this tumultuous time in world history. The true story of their endurance and brotherhood lives on in the memory of Rhodesians around the world.
This outstanding 100% preshrunk fitted silk colour poly-cotton t-shirt pays tribute to that story, and features the official Latin motto of the Rhodesian republic, crossed FN FAL service rifles, and the date of their independence.
