Memories of Rhodesia

DOWN MEMORY LANE™

TULI REVISITED.

The small outpost of Tuli plays a very special role in the history of Rhodesia/Zimbabwe.  This is where the Pioneer Column laagered before crossing into Matabeleland.  They were met by Lobengula's warriors, but managed to avoid bloodshed.  It was here that the first Fort was established by the Column.

At the end of July, Karl & Denise Hurry, together with Rod & Anne Tourle revisited Tuli.   The Police Station, the Pioneer Cemetry - it is all in their story that follow.

First though, some photographs taken by W. Ellerton Fry of the Pioneer Column and Fort Tuli.  These are from his original book The Occupation of Mashonaland published in 1890.
