The Rhodesian Special Air Service, one of the most formidable fighting forces in the world, operated almost exclusively across the Rhodesian border during the long bitter bush war undertaking deep-penetration missions against insurgents being harboured inside neighbouring Mozambique and Zambia.

There were missions into Botswana too and at one stage, they were operating without benefit of passport in all three neighbouring black territories at the same time.

Nearly always outgunned and outnumbered, they showed the grit, tenacity, stubbornness and outright professionalism that made them stand out as one of the most elite regiments of the twentieth century.

Many comparisons have been made between the SAS and the Selous Scouts and although they at times they undertook similar type operations, there were many things that set them apart from each other.
