    A good mix of DPM- and M81-type patterns?
    And are the US currantly sending military advisors to African countries?

    US has had military advisors in more African countries than anybody knows about for decades. I have a retired SF NCO friend who led a company on a combat patrol in the late 1980s or early 1990s. Dunno exactly when, definitely don't know where Very Happy

    Currently there are about 100 US SF personnel operating in the Congo/Uganda against the LRA. And they aren't just advising, apparently.

    Getting wiser all the time!
    Interesting; I think I'll look at what the mighty Wikipedia has to offer on the matter.

    Thank you Steve and great photos Mr. Matz!

    Malawian Army 1980s

    Post by Billy1977 on Tue Jul 07, 2015 11:37 pm

    Hello everybody, does anyone have photos of the Malawian Army in the mid-1980s? From one fuzzy photo I have of them it looks like they wore a British olive drab jungle uniform and British turtleshell helmet (I think it's called a Mk.III?) but I could be mistaken.

    Since Malawi was the former British colony of Niassaland it used British equipment and uniforms at the beginning.
