RBW- MUKUMBURA 1977, 1RR.

Standard

Many thanks to Johan Muller for these excellent photos that he took back in 1977 during the Rhodesian Bush War. Superb quality!

I thought these photographs would be very informative for RBW Modelers as it shows 1st Bn Rhodesia Regiment at Mukumbura on the border in 1977.

Note the troops dress, weapons, positions, 4.5 Rhodef vehicle with conveyor belting mine protection, barber plates in wheel arches, central seating, and roll bars.

Note bottles, crates of bottles and loose equipment would not be carried in the rear of the vehicle once deployed on patrols or movement in the boarder area, due to the mine threat. Only personnel equipment and weapons.
