Regiment Bloemspruit - (3 members)

Regiment Bloemspruit was established on 1 Jan 1964 (officially given as 1 Jan 1963) as the first Citizen Force infantry regiment in the then Orange Free State with the active involvement of then Minister of Defence and later State President, JJ (Jim) Fouché. The Freedom of the City was conferred on the Regiment by the City Council of Bloemfontein on 29 January 1981, which the unit exercised for the first time on 6 March 1982. The regiment served in the South African Border War in the 1970s and 1980s. It served as motorised infantry (as it still does) and is based in Bloemfontein in the Free State. On 1 April 1997, Regiment Louw Wepener (Bethlehem), Regiment De Wet (Kroonstad) and Regiment Dan Pienaar (Bloemfontein) were absorbed into Regiment Bloemspruit.
