Royal Rhodesian Tour Movitone

16 May 1960) The Queen was at London Airport to see her mother off on a 6,000-mile flight to Salisbury. Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother’s tour to the Rhodesias and Nyasaland was planned to last three weeks, and perhaps the most notable engagement of her visit would be the official opening of the great Kariba Dam. ® Salisbury now, and the Governor-General, Lord Dalhousie, led the official welcome and made the presentations to Her Majesty. The Guard of Honour was found by the First Battalion, the Royal Rhodesia Regiment. Salisbury, the Federal capital, had turned out in full force to give the Queen Mother the friendliest of greetings, and the crowds in the streets were estimated to number 60,000, probably the biggest ever seen here.
