UPDATES

This section is to provide a quick reference and access to all additions as well as to inform you of all major changes and corrections made to this web site.

 

 

05JUL07 - I would like to be contacted by members of the Selous Scouts Association. I have corresponded with members before on establishing this site as the official site. If interested contact the webmaster at selousscouts "at" nc.rr.com for the possibilities of getting this off the ground.

04JUL07 - Happy 4th of July! I have a guestbook up and running and already have had a handful of entries. I again made some minor corrections and additions as well as added a UK version of the SKUZ' APO MARKETPLACE.

28JUN07 - Wow! Were does the time go? I finally had some minor updates on the site. I fixed some problems and added some items. Like the SKUZ' APO MARKETPLACE. I also took the Tripod ads off the site as well as added some links in the RELATED LINKS page. I still have no guestbook up yet. I have been slowly working to dump this site layout for a totally new format with a ton of new information that I been holding out to post on the site. Well please support the site by shopping through the Marketplace page or make a donation. All money earned goes to keeping the site up and running, and all money beyond that I will be donating to the Selous Scouts Association or other relevant Rhodesian Associations like the Rhodesian SAS or RLI.
