White Wolves

For the putative South African white extremist group, see Barend Strydom.

The White Wolves is a putative British nationalist and racist militant organisation which claimed responsibility for several racially motivated bombings in London in 1999.

Mike Whine, head of the Board of Jewish Deputies theorised that the White Wolves were a splinter group of Combat 18, deriving their name from a Serbian paramilitary formation.

The organisation adheres to the doctrine of leaderless resistance.[1]

London bombs

Around the time of the Brixton nail-bomb, 25 people received stenciled notes stating:

Notice is hereby given that all non-whites (defined by blood, not religion) must permanently leave the British Isles before the year is out. Jews & non-whites who remain after 1999 has ended will be exterminated. When the clocks strike midnight on on the 31st of December 1999 the White Wolves will begin to howl and when the Wolves begin to howl the Wolves begin to hunt. You have been warned. Hail Britannia.[2]

At the time of the bombings, police authorities believed that former Combat 18 second-in-command Del O'Connor was the likely head of the White Wolves.[3] A stencilled message had been circulated reading C18 did not carry out the Brixton bombing. We, the White Wolves, did.[4]


In May 1999, a 22-year-old engineer named David Copeland was arrested and charged with all three nail-bombings.[5] Many believe that the "White Wolves" were an invention of Copeland to try to further his goal of precipitating a race war in Britain.
