Belfast Commando - (0 members)

The Belfast Commando [Afr: Belfast-kommando] was established on the farm Tweefontein near Belfast in the Eastern Transvaal (now Mpumalanga) in 1890. It was named after the Capital City of Northern Ireland. Despite the given established date, their registered 'Battle Honours' are Sekoekoeni 1876, Eerste Vryheids Oorlog 1880-81, Modjadji 1890, Maguba 1895, Mpefu 1898 and Anglo Boere Oorlog (Anglo Boer War) 1899-1902. Their first emblem was the 'Crowned Crane'. During the SADF-period it was organised under the Group 28 Headquarters in Middelburg as part of the Eastern Transvaal Command and was responsible for local area protection. The shoulder flash was authorised in 1980. It was disbanded with the remainder of the commandos after President Mbeki announced the disbanding of the commando system on 14th February 2003.
