Comment by Eddy Norris
Joe Cameron served in the Rhodesian Air Force and after many years of playing took up the reigns as coach which he did with great distinction and gaining respect from all associated with the rugby of the Rhodesian Air Force.

The recompilation was done for no or intended financial gain but rather as a ORAFs initiative to record the memories of Rhodesia.
