The story of the Parachute Training School in Rhodesia

This blog is written by the CO of the PTS Salisbury Rhodesia and extends from the first instructor's course through to specialised Pathfinder and HALO/HAHO operational jumps done by the Rhodesian SAS as well as the RLI.
I am sure American readers will enjoy the inventive techniques and equipment used while the country was under sanctions. The informal attitude of a very professional bunch of people who often did as many as three operational jumps a day in that small and brave landlocked country.
