Danie Theron Combat School - (6 members)

Danie Theron Combat School (DTCS) [Afr: Danie Theron Krygskool (DTKS)] was established at Kimberley in November 1967 as the Commando Combat School [Afr: Kommando-krygskool] and renamed in 1968. The School was initially responsible for basic military training and the majority of the recruits were area bound farmers, business owners, or essentials services. These recruits were to be allocated to regional commandos after their initial training. By 1973, the majority of the DTCS training/recruit wing staff were transferred to a new unit, 11 Commando, also in Kimberley. Since 1977, the DTCS was responsible for promotional courses for the Commandos and the Civilian Force. Officers and NCOs were trained in conventional and counter insurgence warfare. Promotional and Corps specific training was eventually transferred to other schools by the mid 1980s. In 1990 the name of the SA Intelligence School, which had previously been moved to Potchefstroom in 1988, was changed to Danie Theron Combat School resulting in DTCS subsequently based at Potchefstroom. (On 1 June 1996 the name of this unit was again changed, this time to School of Intelligence). [Also see SA Intelligence School]
