113 Battalion - (1 members)

113 Battalion (113 BN) [Afr: 113 Bataljon] was established at Phalaborwa in the Eastern Transvaal as one of nine regional African battalions to train black soldiers, each with a particular ethnic identity, which would serve under regional SADF commands. 113 BN comprised of Shangaan soldiers from Gazankulu. The original intention was for this battalion to form the basis of a future Gazankulu Defence Force. 113 Battalion resorted under the command of Group 13. 64 soldiers from 113 Battalion were transferred to 116 Battalion when that unit was expanded. 113 Battalion was later absorbed into 7 South African Infantry Battalion to form a single battalion in the new SANDF.
