SA Army College - (11 members)

The South African Army College [Afr: Suid-Afrikaanse Lëerkollege] was so named on 1 March 1968, when it was announced that the South African Military College [Afr: Suid-Afrikaanse Militêre Kollege], sited in Voortrekkerhoogte, was to be renamed as the South African Army College, because the College had taken on an army character with the establishment of the Air Force College. The change in designation was, therefore, a logical consequence. The Army College can trace its origins back to 1 July 1912 when the S.A. Military School was established at the Old Presidency in Bloemfontein. in 1920, the school was re-established in the now familiar stone building at Roberts Heights (now Voortrekkerhoogte) and designated the South African Military School [Afr Suid-Afrikaanse Militëre Skool]. On 1 July 1924, it became the South African Military College.
