Notes:
You can personalise a cap with your name/unit/intake/regimental number etc (see below) for an additional $12.50.
Rhodesian Coat of Arms only works on green - it does not work on a black background.
BSAP Caps designed for navy blue but can go on other colours if desired.
The Rhodesian Army (not shown) and RLI badges are too large to embroid directly to caps and hats, they are made as a badge on a drill backing which is then sewn on to the caps - hence the different price for the caps.
Rhodesian Air Force caps are a limited edition - once sold there will be no more.

Replica Rhodesian Rugby Jerseys

We have researched and copied as close as possible to the 'real thing' as used in the late 1970's. Other copies on the market contain errors relating to the badge and the stripes. Our jersey is the closest that you will get to an original.

The initial custom designed fabric and jerseys were produced by Lane Walker Rudkin International (LWR), a New Zealand based company. LWR has since closed down and their subsidiary company, Canterbury Clothing Company (CCC) has taken on our design and are our current supplier of these unique jerseys.

In 1898 the first national Rhodesian side toured South Africa. We can only see from black and white photos that the strip was dark in colour. In the early 1900's the Green and White hoops were introduced. It was not until the late 1970's that the Lion over the Tusk was actually sewn onto the jersey, the first time that any insignia other than player numbers was worn.

Feedback to date from around the world is most favourable regarding size and likeness to the original.

Material is a poly /cotton mix and some shrinkage is to be expected.

When ordering please send us your chest and if you want short or long sleeve. We stock sizes covering chest size:

  • Medium = 45 inch / 114 cm up to
  • XXXL = 59 inch / 150 cm
