Find Another UnitBrief Description

2 Locating Regiment - (4 members)

2 Locating Regiment was the second of three regiments that provided target locating services to the SAA(Fd) and could trace its origins back to its creation at the University of Witwatersrand. By June 1951 a command nucleus could conduct its first training camp in Potchefstroom. By 1966 the unit moved from Auckland Park to Doornkop Military Base. The regiment specialized in the technical search of enemy battery fire by means of delicate and sophisticated measuring equipment, such as radar and meteorology and comprised only of 22 Battery. This battery would have typically comprised of an Intelligence Section, a Meteorological Section, a Radar Troop of three radar sections each with a radar set, a Sound Ranging Troop, a Survey Troop, and an Observation Troop. It was renamed to the Johannesburg Artillery Regiment in 1990 and was finally amalgamated, together with 7 Medium Regiment, into the Transvaal Horse Artillery Regiment.
