Hi ciroferrara, not really my thing, but a good question. i'm sure

1906 rebellion. it's a very enjoyable read. cheer's.

Ciroferrara.

I take it you mean the British South Africa Company’s seizure of the land of the Ndebele and Shona people, rather than the annexation of Southern Rhodesia in 1923?

If that’s the case. Off the top of my head, as I away from my books at present.

Commandant Raaff served in 1893 Ndebele War, he died from disease at the conclusion of the campaign.

Charles Louis Norris-Newman served in the 1893 War and 1896 Rebellion.

Digby Willoughby served in the 1896 Rebellion.

J. W. Colenbrander served in both of the campaigns against the Ndebele.

Contrary to popular belief Allan Wilson, of the Shangani Patrol, did not serve in the Zulu War.

A quick look on the net and there is a lot of images of the 1st and 2nd Matabele wars...
quite a few on pinterest.
this is Major Frederick Russell Burnham in London receiving his DSO from the King.

The Cecil Rhodes Birthplace Museum in Bishops Stortford should still have a large collection of newspaper reproduced photographs, that I donated to them several years ago.

Hi.. Was wondering if this museum is still around... the town seems to be busy purging any memory of Rhodes. I see they renamed Rhodes birthplace to South Mill Arts. So do they still display items related to Rhodes? thanks.. Len

Len,

Next time I'm in Bishops Stortford I will take a look.

They haven't changed the road name opposite as yet it is still Rhodes Avenue, with Wilson Close running off of it, and last time looked Shangani Road & Mazoe Road were still there as well.

The Bishop's Stortford Museum (Rhodes's birthplace is still there).
A Flag for the Matabele by Peter Gibbs (Gateshead, 1955) contains contemporary photos of people, places, events, and documents.
