2 Parachute Battalion - (7 members)

2 Parachute Battalion (2 PARA) [Afr: 2 Valskernbataljon] was formed on 1 June 1971 to assimilate the growing number of parachute trained conscripts with further national service obligations. 1 Parachute Battalion was unable to cope with the additional administration, and 2 Para therefore comprised of Civilian Force members. 2 Parachute Battalion had its baptism of fire during Operation Savannah in 1975 and took part in Operation Reindeer in 1978.
