Rhodesian Light Infantry, ‘1 Commando’s Attack on Seguranza’, original ‘military edition restricted’ map


A map of the Seguranza operational area composed of four other maps trimmed and pasted together and backed by further map sheets measuring approximately 800mm wide by 1100mm high. The sheets are of the standard ‘Military Edition Restricted’ type in English and Potuguese. RLI 1 Commando deployments and movements have been added by hand with a printed account/text ‘Extract from the Operational Report of I Commando Covering Operations from 16 October – 2 November 1973′  attached at the lower left corner.

An important association artefact, the map probably intended as an intructional tool for tactical training, originally from the library of the late Lt. Col. Ron Reid Daly, RSM of the RLI and founding/commanding officer of the Selous Scouts.

General edge wear with some larger tears and age darkening/browning.
