3 Field Ambulance Unit - (0 members)

Field Ambulance Units can date their origins back to 21 Oct 1899 when the Volunteer Medical Staff Corps was established in King William's Town in the present day Eastern Cape, then known as the Cape Colony. 3 Field Ambulance Unit (3 FAU) [Afr: 3 Veldambulans-eenheid] was re-formed as a Citizen Force unit in Cape Town to support 71 Mot Bde, one of the newly organized SA Army formations, in 1974. On 25 Jan 1976, 3 Field Ambulance was installed in the hospital at Pereira de Eça where it provided an important service due to its central location so much closer to SWA and was particularly suited to take over the work after 1 Forward Field Hospital was closed down. Invaluable help could also be provided to a great number of refugees. The unit was moved to Grootfontein on 15 Feb 1976. 3 FAU was eventually combined with 12 FAU and 20 FAU to form 3 Medical Battalion Group on the Bn Grp's establishment on 5 Nov 1981.
