    Some interesting words/terms, quite literal in some cases and logical

    There was a similar guide for Europeans in the Kings African Rifles. Can be a hard read in the modern world however also surprisingly inclusive by perceptions of attitudes of the time.

    I've got a fair few language guides (official and private purchase) Gurkhali, Hindustani, Urdu and lots of the more mainstream ones but don't seem to have anything that would relate to the KAR - I do have a few weapons manuals produced for African troops
