2 Field Engineer Regiment

Ubique / Fac et Gloria

 

Welcome to the South African Unit Profiles.

You can find over 1000 South African units and formations (and some subunits) on here by using the Search text box or drilling in by Service and then Corps.

Wherever possible I have included a Unit Flash and a very short history or description. I would like to invite you, the members of the portal, to help build up a comprehensive and complete unit list, each with its relevant profile.

Registered Users will be able to post stories and upload photos to each unit, while Unregistered Users will only be able to view the information.

The concept here is also to allow Registered Users, or Members, to link themselves to units by the year that they served in, and optionally supply further information, like location, subunit, rank. This will allow others that served in that same unit, in that same year to find the member and invite him as a Buddy! Buddies will be able to establish communications with each other and build up that old camaraderie again.

This is still very much a Work-In-Progress that has already taken me the best part of 10 years work! Even so, I would appreciate your critical and positive feedback and I am sure everyone else would appreciate your participation most of all!

I have already integrated much of the Facebook functionality so that you could 'Comment' and 'Like' using your Facebook account, even without Registering or logging in. Soon I will hopefully be able to fully integrate the War In Angola users with their Facebook accounts.

To get started, have a look at how I have done 4 Artillery Regiment...

PLEASE NOTE THAT ONLY REGISTERED USERS CAN SEARCH FOR A UNIT BY NAME OR PARTIAL NAME!

Enjoy...

RE: 2 Field Engineer Regiment

"EERBAARHEID EERSTE"


EREKODE VAN 2 VELDGENIEREGIMENT


As 'n lid van 2 Veldgenieregiment glo ek en erken ek: dat God oor my eie en my volk se weë beskik; dat dit my vooreg is om sowel burger as soldaat in diens van ons geliefde Suid-Afrikaanse Republiek te mag wees; dat ek 'n verantwoordelikheid en 'n plig dra om my te alle tye, onvoorwaardelik, diensbaar te stel vir die behoud van my naaste, my land en my volk; dat my gesindheid en my optrede altyd deur edelheid van gees, gehoorsaamheid, waaksaamheid, vreesloosheid en vasberadenheid gekenmerk moet word; dat ek sodoende ook my bydrae kan lewer tot die verwesenliking van my volk se bede:


"...DAT DIE ERWE VAN ONS VAAD'RE VIR ONS KINDERS ERWE BLY..."


"EK IS WAT EK DINK"
