Comments: When the Rhodesian Army recruited Andre Denison in 1975, it could not have chosen better.
It secured the services of a hardened veteran of four of the minor wars of the 1950’s and 1960’s – the Suez debacle, the Cyprus Emergency, the confrrontation with Indonesia as well as events, we were seen in Northern Ireland. Denison had been a para-trooper, a member of the SAS, a company commander and a training officer.
He had served with the Malawi Rifles and had gained experience with African troops. Thus he was the most appropriate choice as the first Officer Commanding of “A” Company of the new 2nd Battalion of the Rhodesian African Rifles.
