|Barkly West Commando - (0 members)
The Barkly West Commando was established at Barkly West in the Northern Cape sometime between the Anglo Boer War and 1914 as it was involved as a unit in the South West Africa Campaign of 1914, but was not active as an independent commando during the Boer War. During the SADF-period it was organised under the Group 22 Headquarters in Kimberley as part of the Northern Cape Command and was responsible for local area protection. The shoulder flash was authorised in 1977 but the rest of the insignia only in the early 1990s. It was disbanded with the remainder of the commandos after President Mbeki announced the disbanding of the commando system on 14th February 2003.
