3 Parachute Battalion - (7 members)

3 Parachute Battalion (3 PARA) [Afr: 3 Valskembataljon] was formed in July 1977 (the official establishment date is given as 1 Aug 1975) 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 and 3 Para therefore comprised of Civilian Force members. 3 Para participated in Operation Reindeer in 1978 and formed part of the newly formed 44 Parachute Brigade in 1978.
