I wonder if any South African member can help with an identification , and if possible, some

history on this badge. It is South African, but I have been unable to find much beyond the fact

that it was a local regiment. Mervyn

It's the badge of the Afrikaner Broederbond (AB), founded in 1921, Wees Sterk means be strong. All the major members of the pre-Mandela governments were Broederbond members and it was like a who's who of Afrikaans nationalists.

Regiment Oos Rand. HQ'd in Benoni. The white metal rose is however missing off the badge.
