115 South African Infantry Battalion - (0 members)

115 Battalion (115 BN) [Afr: 115 Suid-Afrikaanse Infanteriebataljon] was established in 1984 at Sustershoek (now Siyabuswa, which was the intended capital of KwaNdebele), in the then Central Transvaal, as one of nine regional African battalions to train black soldiers, each with a particular ethnic identity, which would serve under regional SADF commands. 115 BN initially comprised of Ndebele soldiers as it was intended to form the beginning of an armed forces for the KwaNdebele homeland, but weak local support for independence from South Africa eventually halted the idea. 115 Battalion therefore remained a SADF unit under the Northern Transvaal Command, and later, after 1994, resorted under the Gauteng Command. The battalion was disbanded around 1997 and some members were assimilated into the new SANDF.
