    COMM: The Rhodesian army is an elite force and the training programme is intensive...concentrating on physical fitness. The regular army.....numbers 5,000......3,000 are black....



    ....reservists known as territorials lift the strength of the army... to 20,00 at any one time....total nos are about evenly divided.....



    10,000 black and 10,000 white..with one important consideration.....all the officers at the moment are white."



    "This army is small but its good..



    ...best counter-insurgency force in the world..



    they will shortly have a chance to prove that claim."



    "These girls are Rhodesian army soldiers......typical British style course of square bashing......



    Rhodesian Women's Army came into being in September 1975......before joining up....secretaries, farmers daughters.....and housewives....



    "These girls are not yet in combat...if necessary they'll go into the front line in Rhodesia..."
