8 South African Infantry Battalion - (47 members)

8 South African Infantry Battalion (8 SAI) [Afr: 8 Suid-Afrikaanse Infanteriebataljon] was established in October 1973, at Upington in the Northern Cape, as a training battalion for National Servicemen who were to be trained as motorised infantry and deployed at various bases in the Operational Area. Not used as an independent unit, it supplied manpower to many cross-border operations into Angola. In 1984, it was renamed to 8 South African Infantry Training Unit [Afr: 8 Suid-Afrikaanse Infanterie Opleidingseenheid] but was always referred to as 8 SAI. After the war, 61 Mech was moved to and amalgamated with 8 SAI.
