Rhodesian Army Medical Corps flag #1

An essential element in any army, the Medical Corps' purpose is to save lives in any way possible. The Rhodesian Medical Corps, though small in numbers, provided the entire spectrum of medical assistance, not only to the military, but also to tribespeople when necessary and if circumstances permitted. The Corps ran several hospitals and treated every kind of ailment from bullet wounds to typhoid. The flag of the Corps displayed its badge in gold on horizontal stripes of blue and yellow on a maroon field. The pre-UDI flag had a crown on top of the badge with a scroll bearing the word "Rhodesia" beneath. On the post-UDI flag the crown was replaced by the Rhodesian lion and tusk symbol.

This is Richard Allport's image of the post-1970 republican version described above.  I altered that flag by replacing the lion and tusk with the Queen's Crown to create the pre-1970 version, which I have labeled zw^rhmed01.
