Occupation of Mashonaland: 130 year anniversary

William Ellerton Fry took part in the occupation of Mashonaland (subsequently Rhodesia, now Zimbabwe) by the Pioneer Corps. He joined the Corps as official photographer and cartographer. His photographs covered the column’s march from the Macloutsie River in Bechuanaland (now Botswana) to Salisbury (now Harare) in Zimbabwe.

On 12 September 1890 the British Flag was hoisted in Mashonaland. This date was later celebrated as a Rhodesian public holiday.
