1 South African Cape Corps Infantry Battalion - (2 members)

The SA Cape Corps (SACC) [Afr: SA Kaapse Korps (SAKK)], one of the oldest military units in SA history, can trace its ancestry back to 1781. It was re-established in 1963 as the SA Coloured Corps Training Centre. Public pressure forced a name change and "Coloured" was substituted with "Cape" in 1970. In 1979/80 the Cape Corps expanded into a corps school, 1 SACC Battalion and the SACC Maintenance Unit. The South African Cape Corps combat battalion was renamed 1st Battalion, South African Cape Corps, in 1984 The SACC was eventually disbanded on March 31, 1992.
