|Regiment Louw Wepener - (0 members)
Regiment Louw Wepener was established in Ladybrand on 1 April 1934, as one of six Afrikaans-speaking Citizen Force regiments and was a mechnised infantry unit. During World War 2 both it and Regiment De Wet were absorbed into Regiment President Steyn. In 1946, the regiment was resuscitated and in 1960 it became Regiment Oos-Vrystaat. The original designation was re-adopted in 1966 when it became a motorised infantry unit. The regiment served until well into the 1990s before it was disbanded on 1 April 1997 when the remaining members were incorporated into Regiment Bloemspruit.
