Natal Command (NCmd)

Victores - Victors

 

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...

Natal Command (NCmd) - (4 members)

The original No. 3 Military District (MD No 3) [Afr: Militêre Distrik Nr. 3] was redesignated as Natal Command [Afr: Kommandement Natal] on 9 March 1934, and became known as the Natal Fortress Command in 1942. In 1946 it was once again renamed Natal Command and became one of the original ten regional SADF commands, which, with the Walvis Bay Military Area, made up the Territorial Force. Based in Durban, it was responsible for the security of the region, forming the primary level of command for military operations in support of the Police. It also provided logistic, administrative and service support to units and formations operating in its area of responsibility. From 1966 Natal Command became involved in the South West Africa operational area in order to prevent SWAPO infiltrations. Soldiers from Permanent Force, Citizen Force and Commando Units all over Natal Command, did border duty. Group 9,10 and 11 Headquarters were established in Natal Command in 1969 and Group 27 was added in 1978. In 1987/88 Natal Command had to also supply trained and skilled manpower for Operations Modular, Hooper, Packer and Displace in Angola.

WE ARE ELEVATED ABOVE PARTY POLITICS. WE ACT FAIRLY, PROFESSIONALLY, RESOURCEFULLY AND DECISIVELY WITHIN RECOGNIZED MILITARY STANDARDS. WE MAINTAIN CHRISTIAN VALUES AND NORMS AND ADHERE TO A POLICY OF RELIGIOUS FREEDOM. WHILE ALL MEMBERS ARE ENCOURAGED AND SUPPORTED TO REACH THEIR OPTIMUM POTENTIAL, MILITARY ETHICS, PERSONAL INTEGRITY AND RESPECT FOR THE INDIVIDUAL ARE OF PARAMOUNT IMPORTANCE.


ETHICS OF A SOLDIER IN NATAL COMMAND

NATAL COMMAND, WITH ALL ITS MEMBERS, IS AN INSTITUTION FOUNDED ON MUTUAL RESPECT, RECOGNITION AND FOREBEARANCE, AND NOT CONTROVERSY AND FAVOURITISM.
THIS DOES NOT IMPLY THAT ALL ACTIONS WILL AT ALL TIMES BE ACCEPTABLE TO EVERYONE.
MEMBERS OF NATAL COMMAND WILL HOWEVER, BY THEIR ACTIONS IN DOING THEIR DUTY, BE SO PROFESSIONAL AND CREDIBLE, THAT EVEN THOSE WHO DO NOT IDENTIFY WITH SUCH ACTIONS, WILL HAVE NO OPTION BUT TO ACCEPT AND RESPECT THEM.
