Rhodesian Bush War – Cockle Shell Heroes.

The Elite, The Story of the Rhodesian SAS by Barbara Cole. (p116-121)

Capt Bob MacKenna came up with a covert operation to attack ZANLA and FRELIMO in Mozambique. 12 men from A Troop RhSAS would use 6 Klepper Canoes to infiltrate Mozambique and Cabora Bassa Damn. They would attack enemy targets, barracks, ambush patrols and vehicles, lay mines and booby traps and destroy boats.

.I also used the Pictorial version by Barbara Cole. Photos of troops in combat order are from other ops but they would be in greens for this op.
