I thought I would remind all Rhodesian Bush war gamers of the splendid figures sculptured by Kosta Herko, for Eureka Miniatures in Australia. You can also get them in the UK through Fighting 15s.
Interesting to note that along side the Rhodesian Light Infantry the RAR still hold the world record for Military Parachute Operations. 1RAR and 2RAR manned two of the four main Fire Forces during the bush war. With the expansion of operations Indep RAR units took part in Fire Force and this lead to Jumbo Fire Force as well..
Once RAR paratroopers had landed on the DZ they would unstrap their weapon, drop their parachute harness and helmet making a note of where they where. They would then replace their combat cap, inside out so the day glow is upper most, form a sweep line and advance.
Some of these figures are expertly painted by Ashley Straw.
I have still not got a good image of the European officer and there are twelve other figures included of various poses giving you three sticks of troops.
