Natal Mounted Rifles - (5 members)

The Natal Mounted Rifles (NMR) can trace their origins back to 25 Sep 1862. It became a mechanised unit prior to World War 2 and used Steward and Sherman tanks during WWII. They continued as a balanced and fully combat ready Tank Regiment and saw duty in SWA during the Border War and formed part of 81 Armoured Brigade from 1975 until 1983, then as part of 84 Motorised Brigade from 1983. The Regimental strength was buoyed by the regular intakes of national Servicemen during this period.
