SA Army Gymnasium Signals Unit* - (11 members)

The Army Gymnasium Signals Unit [Afr: Leërgimnasium Seineenheid] was first established as a Signal Troop at the Army Gymnasiumin Voortrekkerhoogte in 1957. In 1967 the Army Gym moved from Voortrekkerhoogte to Heidelberg, Transvaal. In 1973 the School of Signals and 1 Sig Regt were transferred to Heidelberg, under the command of the Army Gym,.which officially became a SACS Unit from 1 Jan 1974. On 31 Dec 1978 the Sch of Sigs and 1 Signal Regt merged into the Army Gym. The designation Army Gym was retained despite the role now being one solely one of signals training. From 31 Dec 1978 to 31 Dec 1985, 1 Sig Regt and the Sch of Sigs were designated `NSM Training Branch' and `Formal and Further Training Branch' of the Army Gym, respectively. On 5 Dec 1997 the Sch of Sigs relocated to Pretoria along with 1 Sig Regt. (* Army Gym flashes, and not strictly a Signals badge, was worn by the Signals personnel. There was a design for a specific Signal flash, but it was never produced. A Pocket Breast was however produced and worn, here depicted)
