51 Battalion - (12 members)

51 Battalion (51 BN) [Afr: 51 Bataljon] was formed as one of a few Modular Battalions in 1976. It was based at Ruacana in SWA with a core of PF officers and NCOs on 2- to 4-year tours, and National Servicemen in their second year of service. Sub-units were attached according to the varying requirements, and that's why it was referred to as `modular'. 51 Battalion's main responsibility was to secure the area around Ruacana.
