The Rhodesian Services Association (Inc) was formed in New Zealand from a basis of people who served, or whose family served, in forces loyal to Rhodesia.  The aims are to retain record of our history; remember the fallen; honor the brave and to offer moral support and help to former comrades and their families.  The Association provides a focal point for those wishing to make contact with others from all branches of the forces, as well as the nurses, whose contribution has gone largely unrecognized. 

At the inaugural AGM in October 2003 a committee was elected.  The name Rhodesian Services Association and symbol of the Lion & Tusk was adopted signifying the representation of all arms of the forces through out the history of Rhodesia.
