A poem written in charcoal on a wall at a military base somewhere in Op Hurricane area:
After all have come and gone
We will remain shadows
Of a forgotten past.
Those that follow
After we are long forgotten
Will say
Here lived men of substance
Therefore I pray
God bless all sons of Rhodesia
At least we tried, didn’t we?
Yet how did we fail
When we were so sincere?
Anon
