This is the story of military aviation in Rhodesia from the romantic days of bush flying in the 1920s and 1930s when aircraft were refuelled from jerry cans and landing grounds were often the local golf course. In 1939 the tiny Rhodesian Air Force became the first to take up battle stations even before the outbreak of World War II. The three Rhodesian squadrons served in East Africa, the Western Desert, Italy and Western Europe.
