Lt Col Ron Reid Daly first became a soldier in 1951 when he volunteered to fight with C (Rhodesia) Squadron of the British SAS, newly reformed to combat communist insurgency in Malaya. Afterwards, he worked his way up through the ranks in the Rhodesian Army from trooper to become the RSM of the Rhodesian Light Infantry, when he was commissioned as a captain. He resigned his commission in 1973 to retire on pension, but was persuaded to stay on and form the Selous Scouts, a Special Forces unit desperately needed to fight against communist-backed insurgents.
