11 Commando - (15 members)

11 Commando (11 CMDO) [Afr: 11 Kommando] was formed at Kimberley and Gazetted in November 1973. The first intake of NSM's arrived from 9 January 1974. Most of the DTCS Training/Recruit wing Staff were transferred to this new Battalion. A lot more staff were transferred in. As most of recruits were area bound (Farmers, Business owners and essential service members) they would be allocated to Commando's after their initial training, they retained the Commando beret badge. It was a independent infantry battalion with Higher HQ North West Command in Potchefstroom. On 1 April 1974 the unit's area of responsibility was enlarged by the acquisition of an additional company, stationed at Jan Kempdorp. 11 Commando was disbanded in 1982 and on the 21st June of the same year the SA Intelligence School (SA INT S) was established and took over the 11 Commando lines. It retained the name 11 Commando for its base.
