I have to say, that the French had the coolest uniforms during this Colonial War period.
 
Marcelino da Mata, the most decorated Portuguese soldier ever. He spent 11 years in operations in Guinea. Performed 2412 operations. He was a Comando. He started as a soldier and became lieutenant colonel, promotions for military achievements. He was the most feared soldier in Guinea, by the enemy. He had to leave Guinea with decolonization and lived in Portugal.
