De Oppresso Liber Memorial, NY, NY

Rhodesian forces used horses (Grey's Scouts) from 1975 to 1989. Seffrican (1 SWA Specialist Unit - SWASPES at Oshivello and then Otavi) were also equestrian mounted infantry between 1980 and 1989. Both used the horses as transport, ie. instead of troop vehicles. The infantry dismounted when in direct combat situations and then spent hours after contact trying to get the horses back.
