Interesting book and enjoyed the read. Lots of information on how the operation was put together. The logistics in getting there and setting up is covered in detail. Terrain and weather was a challenge. Struck how “light” some of the troops traveled. Here’s a list of kit from the notes of the book I found interesting. Carried indivdually:
2 days rations in jacket pockets plus the wherewithal to cook them
Water Sterilizing tablets
Weapon cleaning box
1 water bottle
Pick or shovel
Water proof jacket and trousers
Duvet suit including boots
1 small tent pole and six pegs
3 rubber bungies
I initially thought a duvet suit was a chem suit…but I guess its somekind of sleepwear? I have no idea. Shelter was constructed with poncho, pole,pegs, and bungees.
link to some more info…it’s a review of a book on the SBS…..
these were some impressive guys! I recommend this book…
