    Hi Paul,

    Per the London Gazette, it seems to be to do with "Southern Rhodesian Forces"

    "Commission relinquished... The undermtd. (on reversion to Southern Rhodesian Forces): ...A. C. E. NESBITT (SR.160126). 13th Oct. 1945"

    The London Gazette
    Publication date: 1 March 1946
    Page: 1236
