The Rhodesian SAS
These are the men who fought Communism to a standstill in southern Africa at the height of the Cold War.
C Squadron, Special Air Service Regiment was formed during the Second World War by volunteers from Rhodesia. It was disbanded in 1955 and became the nucleus of “C” Squadron (Rhodesian) Special Air Service, operational from 1962. In June 1978 “C” Squadron (Rhodesian) Special Air Service became 1 (Rhodesian) Special Air Service Regiment until Rhodesia became Zimbabwe in 1980.
During the long Bush War against African Communist terrorists, the Rhodesian SAS won the admiration of fair-minded people the world over as one of the best elite forces in military history.
