9 South African Division - (1 members)

9 South African Division (9 DIV) was established in Cape Town in 1992, after the SA Army abandoned the conventional order of battle used for field divisions. The rationalisation of the SADF in the early 1990s resulted in its brigades being redesigned into three compact mobile conventional Divisions. 71 Motorised Brigade ceased to exist on 31 December 1991, and was incorporated in its entirety into the new 9 South African Division on 1 January 1992. The formation's time as 9 SA Division effectively ended on 1 April 1997, when 7 SA Division reverted to a more conventional organisation, and its former units became 73 Brigade, those of 8 SA Division formed 74 Brigade, and that of 9 SA Division became 75 Brigade. 7 SA Division was finally disbanded on 1 April 1999, with all its subordinate units falling instead under the new Type Formations of the SANDF.
