    rhodesia/zimbabwe demolition manual

    I have obtained a copy(from the original)of this Rhodesian/Zimbabwe corp of engineers mine and demolition manual.its dated 1979 which is for one year when the country was known as Rhodesia/Zimbabwe before they became just Zimbabwe.this is probably why the title and other lines have been redacted(blacked out lines)
    very detailed on all the mines and booby-traps used in this area,also covers Rhodesian made mines and traps

    Hi @kiwieod,
    thats a very nice manual and me too I would very much like to get a digital copy of this. Here in Europe we very seldom get good info about the southern part of Africa, especially technical info.
    Thanking you in advance for your kind consideration, I remain, kindly yours,
    Bellifortis.

    there was only excerpts from this manual before and this is what I have been looking for a long time.

    I have been chasing this manual and other Rhodesian manuals for years
    any live or dug ordnance shown in my posts was dealt with by EOD personell
