Libertatem Tenemus - We are independent

 

Welcome to the South African Unit Profiles.

You can find over 1000 South African units and formations (and some subunits) on here by using the Search text box or drilling in by Service and then Corps.

Wherever possible I have included a Unit Flash and a very short history or description. I would like to invite you, the members of the portal, to help build up a comprehensive and complete unit list, each with its relevant profile.

Registered Users will be able to post stories and upload photos to each unit, while Unregistered Users will only be able to view the information.

The concept here is also to allow Registered Users, or Members, to link themselves to units by the year that they served in, and optionally supply further information, like location, subunit, rank. This will allow others that served in that same unit, in that same year to find the member and invite him as a Buddy! Buddies will be able to establish communications with each other and build up that old camaraderie again.

This is still very much a Work-In-Progress that has already taken me the best part of 10 years work! Even so, I would appreciate your critical and positive feedback and I am sure everyone else would appreciate your participation most of all!

I have already integrated much of the Facebook functionality so that you could 'Comment' and 'Like' using your Facebook account, even without Registering or logging in. Soon I will hopefully be able to fully integrate the War In Angola users with their Facebook accounts.

To get started, have a look at how I have done 4 Artillery Regiment...

PLEASE NOTE THAT ONLY REGISTERED USERS CAN SEARCH FOR A UNIT BY NAME OR PARTIAL NAME!

Enjoy...

RE: Regiment North Natal

History :

After the election of the National Party in 1948, the country experienced a high level of "Afrikanerism". There was, at that stage a differentiation that existed between the English speaking South Africans and the 'Afrikaners' and it was for that reason that is was decided to establish an Afrikaans speaking Regiment in the province.

The majority Afrikaans speaking citizens lived in Northern Natal and it was therefore naturally decided to base the Regiment in this area. Regiment Smuts was established in 1950. The Regiment was converted to a motorised infantry Regiment and the name changed to Regiment Noord Natal.

In 1961 the Regiment partook in its' biggest border duty camp to date. The last border duty camp ended in 1983. In 1966 the Regiment took part in the Republic Festival that took place in Pretoria. In 1986 the Regiment celebrated its' 20th Anniversary as a Motorised Infantry Battalion. The Regiment was awarded with top place in Natal in 1987 and this was repeated again in 1988, 1989 and 1991.

The Regiment was awarded its' National Colours on 27 May 1989.
