THE RHODESIAN LIGHT INFANTRY

G Car deploying troopies of the RLI
MAG MACHINE GUN 7.62 GOOK KILLER OF NOTE-THE RLI KNEW HOW TO USE IT


Fireforce would have been nothing without the Troopies of the RLI who came from many lands to serve Rhodesia in her time of need.

Choppertech describes the formation of Fireforce and how the G and K Cars went into action with this fine body of men. The "Saints" also described as The Incredibles, they had faces of boys yet fought like lions.
Some books of note on the RLI are:
The Saints by Alexandre Binda -compiled and edited by Chris Cocks.
Fireforce by Chris Cocks
Stickleader RLI by Charlie Warren
