Southern Cape Command (SC Cmd) - (0 members)

Southern Cape Command (SC Cmd) [Afr: Kommandement Suidkaap] can trace its origin back to the Outeniqua Fortress Command which had been established in 1940 and closed down in 1946. The command was then reopened as Outeniqua Command in 1953 and renamed to South-Western Districs Command (SWD Cmd) [Kommandement Suidwestelike Distrikte] in 1959. The SC Cmd was finally established by renaming the SWD Command in 1968. Southern Cape Command was one of the regional SADF commands, which, with the Walvis Bay Military Area, made up the Territorial Force. Based in Oudtshoorn, 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.
