112 South African Infantry Battalion - (0 members)

112 Battalion (112 BN) [Afr: 112 Suid-Afrikaanse Infanteriebataljon] was established in 1978 at Madimbo, in the Soutpansberg Military Area, just outside the Venda territory in Northern Transvaal, as one of nine regional African battalions to train black soldiers, each with a particular ethnic identity, which would serve under regional SADF commands. 112 BN comprised of Vendas from Venda. On 27 September 1982 112 Battalion was disbanded and re-established to form One Venda Battalion at Manenu, when its soldiers were all transferred to the Venda Defence Force (VDF) [Afr: Venda Weermag]. At that stage this battalion consisted of three companies and was to all purposes a light infantry battalion.
