  • Description

    The American adventure writer, Robin Moore, has declared himself the United States `Ambassador' to Rhodesia. The United States like every other country except South Africa does not recognise the Government of Premier Ian Smith
    Mr. Moore has said he made the move declaring myself `Ambassador' to give all those Americans in Rhodesia a voice. He has no official recognition from the Rhodesian Government but clearly joys some support in Rhodesia. He believes President Carter should establish diplomatic relations with Rhodesia which he says is fighting war against Communism in Southern Africa. Mr. Moore is also writing books on Rhodesia - one on terrorism and the other on Americans fighting ere.

    SYNOPSIS: But at Mr. Moore's home in the Rhodesian capital of Salisbury, the Stars and Stripes fly and regular Saturday afternoon parties are held for Americans serving in Rhodesia forces. Saturday 27 August was a special day.

    Americans serving in the Grey's Scouts were present as were members of four other Rhodesian units. Mr. Moore says that as well as American, there are soldiers from 15 other countries in the Rhodesian Armed Services. On Saturday, Mr. Moore presented copies of what he says is his "Embassy" insignia to American representatives in the five units. It shows an American eagle with a broken wing which he says represents Americans harassed by their Government for fighting Communists in Rhodesia. Mr. Moore, who wrote "The French Connection" and "The Green Berets" addressed his guests.
