29 Field Workshop* - (1 members)

The unit was established at Johannesburg in 1946 as 29 Brigade Workshop [Afr: 29 Brigadewerkswinkel] as part of the Witwatersrand Command. The name was changed to 29 Field Workshop on 1 Jan 1954 and then, on 31 Jan 1959, it was made part of 1 Technical Service Regiment [Afr: 1 Tegniese Diensregiment] as 29 Field Workshop Squadron [Afr: 29 Veldwerkplaas-eskadron]. The unit obtained regimental status when it was renamed to 29 Field Workshop [Afr: 29 Veldwerkplaas] in 1975 and became part of 73 Mot Bde. 29 Field Workshop was the first CF workshop called up for Operation Savannah in 1976. Other than doing their normal first- and second-line repairs, it was also responsible for recovery tasks from Angola to Grootfontein. The unit also provided assistance with the handling of Angolan refugees during this time. (*It appears that no flash was ever worn)
