Regiment Voortrekkerhoogte* - (0 members)

Regiment Voortrekkerhoogte (RVH) was established as an Active Citizen Force Unit on 22 April 1960 after starting out as a company in 1956. The Regiment was the only Military Police Regiment In the country. RVH was an extremely busy ACF unit. It had self-accounting status and its members were managed and administered directly by its own Regimental Headquarters. The RHQ later moved to Dequaria at DHQ, and later came to rest at Hut 142, Hendrik Potgieter Rd, Voortrekkerhoogte. It was here that RVH came into its own functioning with a Regimental Headquarters and four companies. The companies were a Divisional Company, a Communication Zone Company, an Unconventional Company and a Reserve Company. Each company was divided into platoons and sections. Regiment Voortrekkerhoogte was officially disbanded in August 1975. Two of the four companies from RVH were attached to the two divisions of 1 SA Corps, ie 7 Infantry Division and 8 Armoured Division, and became 7 and 8 Provost Companies respectively. The remaining two companies were to be known as 11 and 12 Pro Companies.
