  • John Edmond - Battle of Bembezi

    2:13

    We fought them at the Bonko, 'twas just the other day
    They laid an ambush in our path - we went another way
    To capture Bulawayo and stop a fearful war
    The Sal'sbry Horse, Victoria Rangers and the old Cape Corps.

    On the first day of November of eighteen ninety-three
    We fought the Matabele at the Battle of Bembezi.

    We formed a laager on the hill at mid-day for to rest
    We saw an Insukamini regiment towards the west
    We swung the seven-pounder 'round; let a big one fly
    And from the east the Amaveni gave their battle cry.

    On the first day of November of eighteen ninety-three
    We fought the Matabele at the Battle of Bembezi.

    The wild Ingubu with the fierce Imbezu on the right
    Came charging from the northern bush, they were a fearful sight
    And near 6000 warriors - we stopped them on the run
    The bravest of the brave could never match the Maxim gun.

    On the first day of November of eighteen ninety-three
    We fought the Matabele at the Battle of Bembezi.

  • John Edmond - The Shangani Patrol

    2:18

    His troopers, they were loyal
    His troopers, they were young
    They'd follow Allan Wilson to the setting of the sun
    They were hands from many lands, and many a distant shore
    They would follow Wilson—a soldier to the core

    Up the Washangani, and down the other side
    Up the Washangani, where Allan Wilson died

    The Matabele army was running to the north
    And Major Forbes would follow whit for all that he was worth
    But reaching the Shangani, Shangani River wide
    Sent Wilson and his men to scout over the other side

    Up the Washangani, and down the other side
    Up the Washangani, where Allan Wilson died

    Through green Makone Forest the Matabele fled
    The Yankee tracker Burnham said 'They can't be far ahead'
    But Wilson and his troopers were surrounded in the night
    Said Wilson to the volunteers: 'We will stand and fight'

    Up the Washangani, and down the other side
    Up the Washangani, where Allan Wilson died

    With horses in a circle, they sang God Save the Queen
    And thirty-four young troopers would never more be seen
    They killed ten times their number; they're on the honour roll
    So take your hat off slowly to the Shangani Patrol

    Lyrics:
    Brakfontein is a pretty good base, it's a pretty good place to be
    With the Southern Rhodesian volunteers and the men from the B.S.A.P.
    And a whole lot of diggers from Australia and the Rhodesia regiment
    and the water from the Elands River was fresh and heaven sent
    Oh you Elands River your water is heaven sent
    For a whole lot of diggers from Australia and the Rhodesian regiment.

    It was on the third of August on a crisp South African night
    And the Year was 1900 with the Boer war at its height
    De la Rey was in those hills with his 3000 men
    And the water from the Elands River was fresh and heaven sent
    Oh you Elands River your water is heaven sent
    De la Rey is in those hills with his 3000 men

    From the 4th August as the sun rose in the East
    For 12 long days with shell and shot they killed most every beast
    There were oxen, mules and horses and men were lying dead
    But the water from the Eland's river was fresh and heaven sent
    Oh you Elands River your water is heaven sent
    There are oxen, mules and horses and men are lying dead

    Our garrison was scanty a couple o' 100 or more
    De la Rey asked us to lay down arms to his 3000 Boers
    Rhodesians never surrender, that was our testament
    And the water from the Elands River was fresh and heaven sent.
    Oh you Elands River your water is heaven sent
    Rhodesians never surrender, this is our testament

    De la Rey is gone now, we don't know where he went
    Rhodesians never surrender, and that's our testament
    At the siege of Elands River, we made that testament

  • Green and White

    2:59

    We lived for her, we died for her and she still stands……….JE

    This song describes a little girl’s farewell to her father going to war to fight under the Rhodesian flag. “The Green and White”, his first letter home and his joyful safe return. I originally wrote this song for father and daughter duo Ted and Beverley Lynn. It was a huge hit.

  • Daisy

    2:40

    If you look after something, It will look after you…..JE

    My very first weapon was a Daisy air gun; I was eleven years old. When I did my military training the importance of my weapon was drummed into me ad nauseum! I had to know her number backwards and forwards: she had to be kept oiled and spotless. I had to be able to strip her and put her together again blindfolded within a certain time, she was known as your wife, you slept with her, never let her out of your sight and if you dropped her you were put on a charge. The inspiration to write this song came because I was always issued with my own F.N. Rifle every time I was sent to entertain troops. (the F.N.’s similarity to female temperament! I thought “Daisy” would be an appropriate title.
