The Ugandan army to 1985 has remained largely rooted in the traditions of the colonial army. This is evident in its structure and ranking system. Gutteridge has aptly epitomised the traditions continued from British colonial days as ‘a Commonwealth military culture’ (Gutteridge, 1970b). But although the organisation of the armed forces is in the mould of its colonial predecessor, the outlook of the men who fill its ranks continues to be affected by the traditional values of the cultures to which they belong.
