73 Motorised Brigade - (0 members)

73 Motorised Brigade was established on August 1, 1974 as part of 7 South African Division, a motorised formation. By 1977 the brigade comprised of three motorised infantry battalions, a field artillery regiment, a field engineer squadron, a signals unit, a maintenance unit, a field workshop, and a field ambulance. From 1984, 73 Motorised Brigade was moved out of 7 SA Division to fall directly under the command of the Chief of the Army, until 1 August 1986, when it was once again incorporated into 7 SA Division. The Brigade was under the command of the Far North Command for a brief period some time after the command had been establshed in 1984, most probably after 1986. From 1 April 1997 all the units of 7 SA Division were placed under the command of 73 Brigade until 7 SA Division was disbanded on 1 April 1999, with its subordinate units falling instead under the new Type Formations of the SANDF.
