Rhodesian Brushstroke was the legendary pattern utilized during the Rhodesian Bush War from 1965-1979, incorporating an innovative combination of khaki, brown and green. It was designed as an indigenous Rhodesian pattern which was directly influenced by earlier “brushstroke” styled patterns including the Second World War-era Denison smocks. Developed from an earlier arid pattern by Di Cameron, it was manufactured in its distinctive green-over-brown Brushstroke by David Whitehead Textiles. Uniforms and jumpsuits in this pattern become synonymous with Rhodesia’s legendary Troopies and Masodja.

In 2001, the United States Marine Corps camouflage testing scored the old Rhodesian Brushstroke pattern to be extremely effective in various environments. As a testament to the lasting effectiveness of Rhodesian Brushstroke, the vintage pattern scored higher than many other contemporary patterns. After the Rhodesian Bush War, a brown-over-green pattern was adopted by the Zimbabwean National Army.

We’re proud to be replicating the pattern as a 1-to-1 scale copy of an original bolt of David Whitehead Textiles fabric dated circa. 1979. We are the only company accurately providing the pattern exactly as it was worn during the Rhodesian Bush War.
