Description
OUTPOST: STORIES OF THE B.S.A.P.

It is perhaps fitting that this book makes its appearance during the 80th anniversary year of the British South Africa Police. The miscellany of stories contained in this volume are taken from the pages of the Force regimental magazine Outpost which, under its original title of The Police Review, first saw the light of day with its publication in Bulawayo during March, 1911. This milestone represented the fulfilment of an idea stemming from discussions in the old Gwanda police camp some two years earlier, to be followed by much preparation before the magazine was finally launched with Trooper Wilfred Bussy as first editor assisted by Messrs Law and Banning as business and advertisement managers respectively. Little could these gentlemen have foreseen the significance of this event and that their endeavours would culminate in the founding of a magazine which would endure and flourish through the years ahead, see change from virtual pioneer conditions to full and progressive nationhood and become an inseparable part of our Force traditions.


Proudly and with every justification Outpost rightly claims its place as the oldest magazine in Central Africa and one we believe to have a far wider appeal than the confines of serving and ex-members and the borders of our land. Spanning the years, selected stories portray not only the life of the earlier policeman in contrast with that of his modern counterpart, but also provide an insight into the general conditions under which our forbears lived and worked in laying the foundations for so many of the advantages that we now enjoy and, dare I say, too readily take for granted. Amongst these pages will be found a brief history of the Force, glimpses of personal experiences and reminiscences of the early days, accounts of police investigations and other articles, some of which venture into the field of fiction and, in much lighter vein, deal with the policeman's lot.


In all, our hope has been to provide a volume both of historical interest and of entertainment to our readers. In more recent years the Force has undergone a period of major transition with the horse giving way to the machine, sophisticated country-wide communications systems, the extensive use of aircraft, greater use of scientific aids to investigation and, of course, improved training methods to keep abreast of current trends.


Used, Fair-Good condition.


Comes with our CD Kum-A-Kye, the Band of the BSAP.
