“independent and Self Governing” South African homelands?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

The attached two badges are from the “old” South African independent homeland of Bophuthatswana. They both have similar cloth backing (same manufacturer) but the wreaths are different. I suspect that one could be Police and the other Defence force but they could be WO1 and WO2 from the same service. Does anyone have more information on the badges of the old “independent and Self Governing” South African homelands?

Neville - I think Owen has a section on Homeland badges. Will have a look.

Have just looked at Owens and there is a big section on all of the Homelands. Police, Prisons and Traffic Police all look very similar - they are on the metal badges and hard to make out detail.

One could be for a male officer and other could be for a female officer
