Sector 30 Headquarters - (2 members)

Originally established as Commando Group 30 Headquarters [Afr: Hoofkwartier, Kommandogroep No. 30] at Otjiwarongo in 1974, under the command of Chief Commandant J.C. Theron, as part of the then SWA Command, the Headquarters was converted into a Sector Headquarters called Sector 30 [Afr: Hoofkwartier, Sektor 30], also at Otjiwarongo, on 15 Oct 1976. In Aug 1980 it became one of the four sectors which specifically fell directly under South-West African Territory Force (SWATF) control. Each sector had its own headquarters which was responsible for the command and administration of Area Force Units in its Area of Responsibility. Sector 30 comprised of a Headquarters in Otjiwarongo, with 301 Battalion just outside the town. The Etosha, Outjo, Grootfontein, Otavi, Otjiwarongo, Damaraland and Hereroland-West Area Force Units fell under the direct command of the Headquarters, which was nicknamed 'Citadel', meaning "a fortification on the hill ouside of a city to protect that city". The sector was deactivated when the SWATF was demobilised on 1 June 1989.
