|Regiment President Kruger - (1 members)
Regiment President Kruger (RPK) was raised on 1 Jan 1954 as Motorised Infantry with its headquarters at Krugersdorp. It was named after the former Zuid Afrikaanse Republiek president, Paul Kruger. In 1960 it was renamed Regiment Wesrand (West Rand), but reverted back to its original name in 1964. It served as a Citizen Force unit in the SADF and formed part of the Far North Command until the HQ moved to Randfontien in 1972, in the Witwatersrand Command. Sometimes it was wrongly referred to as Regiment Paul Kruger (RPK).
