SELOUS SCOUTS

GALLERY

TWO

A rag-tag bunch of hopeful Selous Scouts on a tactical march during selection.

Lieutenant-Colonel Reid-Daly, the man who envisioned, formed and first commanded the Selous Scouts. This picture is of Reid-Daly during an interview on the capabilities of the Scouts.

Here a Selous Scout candidate is made to paint rocks to correspond with his class roster number. These are the rocks he will carry on his marches. The paint prevents him from dumping them out and replacing them at a later time.

Instructors inspect the painting of the rocks and conduct a weigh in of the loads to be carried by the candidates.

The gutting and preparing of the rotten baboon the candidates are made to eat. The candidates are not fed for days and made to observe the rotten decomposing baboon all week, till they are told to eat it. At this point must are quite willing.

The infamous decomposing Baboon.

A candidate working the rope obstacles, here he is conducting a "commando traverse".

More of the dreaded rope obstacles which were famous for shredding hands.

A candidate on the "Tarzan".

During Selous Scouts Regimental basic training, they greet the officer of the day.
