A recent batch of photographs have come to light of the Paratroopers of A Coy 1RAR in 1978. Many thanks to Michael Matthews of A Coy 1RAR for making these photos available to me.

Michael posted an account of an A Coy external into Mozambique with 2 Daks of Paratroopers and 3 G -cars. Two 1RAR companies took part. The Gooks managed to gap the area by the time they deployed and he was left on the ground with two of his sticks over night before they were extracted by the G-cars the next day. At least the Gooks operations were disrupted and the camp destroyed keeping them constantly on their toes. There will be more ops to follow.

This gives the war gamer the variations of ops and external ops that were being carried out by the RAR.
