The SAS, being undermanned for the amount of activity required to keep the enemy on their heels, approached Major Reid-Daly to borrow some men to use on external missions. Their skill at penetrating terrorist organizations and having black soldiers would be a tremendous asset to Externals. The Major saw this as his opportunity to advance the Scouts into a more useful position.
In characteristic fashion, Reid-Daly flatly turned the OC of the SAS down unless he could move his unit into the mission cycle and go beyond the borders of Rhodesia and do more than collect intelligence. Begrudgingly, the higher command decided it was time to use ALL of its resources to stop the enemy cold.
