1 Engineer Regiment

Find Another UnitBrief Description

1 Engineer Regiment - (0 members)

1 Engineer Squadron [Afr: 1 Genie-eskadron] was approved as an element of the Permanent Force on 1 August 1975, but only really established on 1 July 1976, when the first 40 national servicemen were transferred to the unit from 2 Field Engineer Squadron. Despite the unit's initial PF-status, it has been manned almost exclusively by members of the Citizen Force since its inception. The first Permanent Force Officer Commanding was appointed in January 1991, and the first Permanent Force RSM was appointed in March 1991. This probably coincided with the unit's upgrade to regimental status when it became 1 Engineer Regiment [Afr: 1 Genieregiment] (hence the OC now being a Commandant)
