By the late seventies convoys were the only safe way to travel between many towns. Convoys were operated by the police and the escort vehicles crewed in the main by reservists. If the army was involved in a contact near a convoy route, the convoy would be delayed until it was over, which is what happened here. The delay gave me enough time to nip out the Mazda and take the picture.
The Rhodesian Security Forces were the military forces affiliated to the Rhodesian government. Founded in 1964 as the armed forces of the self-governing British colony of Rhodesia, they remained loyal to the Salisbury government after it unilaterally declared Rhodesia's independence on 11 November 1965. Britain and the United Nations refused to recognise this, and regarded the country as a rebellious British colony throughout its existence
