The physical conditioning before and during the operations was immense. The Pathfinder, a regular marathon runner said it was the most brutal physical training he had ever encountered by far. The climate didn't help matters either, but when it came to operations and chasing Boko down, the STTEp fellows had the edge.
That is awesome, I saw your picture of the jump into Angola and I know he was there in the 70's not sure when but he was still a Selous Scout at the time.
