Regiment Algoa Bay - (2 members)

Regiment Algoa Bay (RAB) [Afr: Regiment Algoabaai] had originally been raised as an artillery unit known as the 5th S.A. Field Regiment, which formed part of the 2nd South African Division in North Africa in 1941 and was at Tubruk in 1942. Reformed after the war, in 1946, the regiment was only named Regiment Algoa Bay in January 1960 when it was converted to the mechanised infantry role. Before that the Regiment therefore initially wore artillery badges. The lighthouse cap badge was adopted in 1964 and was based on the design of the Donkin Reserve lighthouse. Regiment Algoa Bay, Regiment Uitenhage and Donkin Regiment were amalgamated with Regiment Piet Retief in 2000, which was placed directly under the command of the Infantry Formation.
