Can an African soldier be loyal to his British regiment and stay true to his own society and its beliefs? Juma Chimwere believes he must!

Distinguished Conduct recounts a Malawian msilikali's life of doing so. Beginning as an eager Yao recruit in the Central African Rifles, through more than a half century of British colonialism in Nyasaland, Juma remains faithful to his goal. Though sometimes questioning the ongoing effects of his service his continued devotion to duty merits many awards, including medals personally presented by King Edward VII and the Governor of Nyasaland. After retirement his efforts turn more towards encouraging family enterprise and promoting an independent, united Malawi. Yet through his entire journey, Juma earns the respect not only of his fellow Africans, but his King's African Rifles commanders as well.
