Formed in 1941, David Stirling’s SAS had been a highly mobile yet conventional force. The modern SAS can be traced more directly to the Chindits and Force 136. Between the onset of peace and persistent opposition in certain circles, in the autumn of 1945 the original SAS was disbanded. Less than two years later the Malayan Emergency exposed how unprepared the British Army was not only for jungle warfare, but for unconventional warfare in general.
