1971 Rhodesia BSAP British South Africa Police Outpost Magazine – VALUED AT $20

The British South Africa Police (BSAP) was, for most of its existence, the police force of Rhodesia. It was formed as a paramilitary force of mounted infantrymen in 1889 by Cecil Rhodes’ British South Africa Company, from which it took its original name, the British South Africa Company’s Police. Initially run directly by the company, it began to operate independently in 1896, at which time it also dropped “Company’s” from its name. It thereafter served as Rhodesia’s regular police force, retaining its name, until 1980, when it was superseded by the Zimbabwe Republic Police.
