The photographs with the L/Ms TM46s, SKS/AK rifles etc originated from Op Hurricane, circa 1974/early 1975 recovered by 7860 Robert Bresler and an army intelligence detail. A Pilgrim OP South of Rushinga on a high feature one weekday afternoon observed a group of CTS from a distance and fired upon the group and at the same time, calling for Fire Force, which was deployed from Rusambo. It resulted in one capture and the recovery of the large amount of war material. The ammunition recovered was later discovered to be armour piercing. Many such caches were recovered during the course of the conflict.

Peter says it was his first patrol and he failed to make a big enough boma(fence) to keep the horse in that night .
Result -hitching a lift back to the station and the ignominy/embarassment of losing your horse. He went on to complete one of the last successful horse patrols as vehicles took over. Something for the grandkids.
An era passing.
