I will start this thread with an image of a Rhodesian military Farrier (note the pants). The forgotten man behind a good horse... This soldier looks tough, real tough. The kind of strength you don't get by going to the gym. You would not want to piss this man off in a pub!

See you boys in the bush!

You might have pissed him off already as Grey Scouts were mounted infantry not cavalry. They are very different in concept and tactics.

You are correct. Sorry for the error.

With respect,

Here's something to add into the equation:

rhodtpr's video:

(the word "Cavalry" in Rhodesian terms usually referd to the post-Selous Scouts Rhodesian Armored Car Regiment)

Nice pic RS, but these guys look more like either Intaff Mounted Unit or BSAP mounted personnel (I'm thinking of them carrying FN, unless it was early Greys and soft hat, which I dont recall Greys troopers wearing much.
For a great selection of Greys pics take a look at their Facebook site.

GGP333,

Thank you for the link. Here is another pic. Photo caption reads, "Two Grey's discuss a Sit-Rep at Enkomo Barracks near Salisbury before moving out to operational zones."

see you boys in the Bush!
