Pretoria Regiment - (7 members)

The Pretoria Regiment was formed as an infantry battalion on 1 Jul 1913, and converted to armour during World War 2. In the 1960's tank crews were converted to Centurions and Ferrets, eventually to Eland 60 and Eland 90 armoured cars and finally the new Olifant MBT. In December 1987 the Pretoria Regiment sent a squadron of tanks into the battle of Cuito Cuanavale during which they destroyed eight Angolan tanks. The regiment formed part of 81 Armoured Brigade from 1975 until 1991
