Q:
You mention that this was used also in Southern Rhodesia. Do you have any
evidence of this that you could share ? As far as is known these were used only
in our Internment Camps. Kind regards, Allyn Jacobs - Asked by jkpt19 (157 Rating score between 100 and 499)

Hi Allyn,

Thank you for your question.

There are references in books to internment camps is various books.

We know that there was a German internment camp in Salisbury.

A coin and token expert, who died very recently, identified this token and informed us that it was definitely used in Southern Rhodesia.
