It is with great sadness to learn of the death of General Peter Walls, late Black Watch, formerly 'C' Squadron [Rhodesia] SAS commander in Malaya and latterly commander of ComOps, as well as head of the Rhodesian Army.
Many here will have their own memories of this great but humble general and wish to pass on their condolences to his friends & family.

I am sure that there will be obituaries, though perhaps written with a perspective
that will not be in context to recognise his achievements in the times that were.
British General Walter Walker described Walls in The Bear at the Back Door as a:
...real professional, a true and inspiring leader, a man of decision and action who radiates confidence.
Requiescat in Pace

A class act - from the DT, when General Walls was head of ComOps:
For a time, Rhodesian special forces attempted to take and hold key areas of Mozambique to halt the unceasing flow of guerrillas into Rhodesia. Walls, typically, once parachuted into an area of northern Mozambique at Christmas with a consignment of roast turkey for his men. The turkey helped to bolster the troops morale as did the fact that the general landed in a large deep puddle and emerged covered in mud.
