Regiment Piet Retief - (4 members)

Originally founded in 1940, Regiment Piet Retief (RPP) was re-established as a predominantly Afrikaans speaking motorized infantry citizen force regiment in 1952, with its headquarters in Graaff-Reinet although its official establishment date is given as 1 Jan 1954. In 1956 the HQ was moved to Cradock, and in 1960, the name was changed to Regiment Transkei (RTK). In 1962, the HQ was moved to the Drill Hall in Queenstown. The name was once again changed in 1966, this time to Regiment Noordoos-Kaap (RNOK), but a year later, in 1967, the name was changed back to Regiment Piet Retief. The HQ was moved to Port Elizabeth in 1987 and became part of Group 39 in 1994 During the latter part of 2000, Regiment Algoa Bay, Regiment Uitenhage and Donkin Regiment were amalgamated with Regiment Piet Retief.

RE: Regiment Piet Retief

For your info I have attached a pic of my flashes and my beret as last worn. those are not roots below the leaves, it is a part of the stem.

Best Regards
