|Taken from another thread, my not wanting to side-track it:
"The thing that worked for Mike Hoare and his boys (and the Rhodesian Light Infantry, Rhodesian SAS, Selous Scouts et al)"
Who exactly were these Rhodesians mentioned? I have been meaning to ask about them for ages, but never got round to it. Whenever you brouse a British army surplus outlet, you always see various webbing accessries and the likes labelled as being ex-Rhodesian, or Rhodesian type etc. Although I am sure this is in the same context as labeling a $2 watch "SAS issue", what was the unit, and what made them so famous?
Reading at face value, I assume they were a recce regiment recruited from Rodesia, serving in the South African military, against Angola?
