2 Anti-Aircraft Control and Report Troop - (0 members)

2 Anti-Aircraft Control and Report Troop [Afr: 2 Lugafweerbeheer en Rapporttroep] and 1 AA Control and Report Troop were both established as bilingual units of the Citizen Force on 1 Apr 1969. They were only formed in Apr 1970 when their first intake was taken on strength. Their task was to provide AA controllers and staff for the AA Control Centre, which in turn supplied AA Regts with `filtered information', early warning and fire control orders. SADF Order 29/74 included one Permanent Force and six Citizen Force AA Regts and two Control and Report Troops as units of the SA Artillery (AA) organisation. 1 AA Control and Report Troop was amalgamated with 2 AA Control and Report Troop from 1 Aug 1975 to form 2 AA Control and Report Unit [Afr: 2 Lugafweerbeheer en Rapporteenheid]. The unit was headquartered at Vereeniging and eventually disbanded on 1 Jan 1979.

History

RE: 2 Anti-Aircraft Control and Report Troop

Two other important anti-aircraft units were also established. Although 1 Control and Reporting Unit (CF) had existed much earlier (it had been disestablished with effect from 1 January 1963 the two new but similar units appeared on the ORBAT in 1969. The new units - 1 Anti-Aircraft Control and Report Troop and 2 Anti-Aircraft Control and Report Troop were both established as bilingual units of the Citizen Force on 1 April 1969. They were only formed in April 1970 when their first intake was taken on strength. Their task was to provide anti-aircraft controllers and staff for the Anti-Aircraft Control Centre, which in turn supplied Anti-Aircraft Regiments with `filtered information', early warning and fire control orders. South African Defence Force Order 29/74 included one Permanent Force and six Citizen Force Anti-Aircraft Regiments and two Control and Report Troops as units of the SA Artillery (Anti-Aircraft) organisation.

1 Anti-Aircraft Control and Report Troop was, however, effectively disestablished when it amalgamated with 2 Anti-Aircraft Control and Report Troop from 1 August 1975, to form 2 Anti-Aircraft Control and Report Unit. The unit, which was headquartered at Vereeniging, continued to be commanded by Commandant G.C. Ternent of 2 Anti-Aircraft Control and Report Troop. On his retirement he was followed in command by Major M.H. Human, who was appointed from 16 August 1977. The unit was disbanded on 1 January 1979....
