Uniforms of the Royal West African Frontier Force

Recommended Posts

I would never have expected to find an article setting out the experiences of a 1950s National Service officer seconded to the Royal West African Frontier Force in that bastion of post-colonial liberalism, The Guardian. I was delighted, therefore, to find this:

not least for the magnificent photograph of the Queen inspecting a RWAFF Guard of Honour, which shows very clearly the uniforms of the locally-enlisted troops and the European officers (as usual, click to see a larger version).
