Special Mobile Force Memorial - Mauritius

Special Mobile Force Memorial - Mauritius

On a drive around northern Mauritius, came across this memorial to six members of the Mauritius Special Mobile Force (and one civilian) lost at sea on 9 July 1964.

Not been able to find any information on the incident and enlightenment will be much appreciated.

Apparently they died when the boat they where on capsized during a training exercise :-

Well done on finding that David. I had a good search but couldnt find anything.I spent a fair bit of time during the early 70s on that coast, particularly Roche Noir but don't remember seeing the monument
