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.
