  1. Hey everyone, I'm looking for some photos of the South African Irish Regiment during the second world war, because quite frankly, I find them to be quite scarce on the internet. If anybody has any, don't hesitate to share them!
  2. Hello everyone, since two SAP battalions served in world war two, I was questioning if they had some sort of pith flash of their own, and if they wore the SAP badges onfront of their pith. If anybody has any information regarding this, please share it.
  3. Salutations everyone, I found this picture of a Natal Scottish badge today, and it just so happened to have a tartan backing. Unfortunately, I myself wasn't able to identify what tartan it is. If anybody knows what tartan this is, please let me know.
  4. Hello everyone, Recently, I downloaded a PDF file of the South African Artillery history. In it, I read something along the lines that other ranks used a universal artillery cap badge, and that officers used a bronze metal version of their regimental badge. I also read that the artillery used a universal pith helmet flash during the second world war. Just for confirmation, is this true?
  5. Hello all, Recently, I have come across a badge of the 'Natal Scottish'. Apparently this was some sort of infantry regiment of the South African Union Defence Force during the second world war, more specifically 1940-1945(?). I'm looking for some more information about this specific unit, although I have my doubts that there's any available information about it. If someone does have information about it and decides to share it, I would be thankful!
  6. Greetings all, I've been trying to do some research on South African military camps during the second world war for a while now, but I sadly can't find any good sources/pictures. Would any of you here have any idea where I can find good pictures of Camp Cullinan, or any other camp for that matter?
  7. Greetings all, This is probably not the right place to ask, but I'll do it anyway. Does anybody know the official name of the Transvaal Horse Artillery during the second world war? I read somewhere that it was called "3 Field Regiment (V) South African Artillery (T.H.A.)", but I'm not quite sure on whether that's true or not. I also don't know what the "(V)" stands for, but I'm assuming it means volunteers. Any and all help would be appreciated!
  8. Greetings everybody, Recently, I've stumbled across something called the 1 SWA (Southwest Africa) Infantry Battalion. This was a unit of the South African Union Defence Force during the second world war. Does anybody have any information on this unit?
  9. Greetings everyone, I was looking for somebody that potentially has some information and/or photos about the Thaba Tshwane military complex during the second world war. Many thanks in advance to all those who share their knowledge.
  10. Greetings everyone, I was wondering on which uniform(s) the South African cloth/metal shoulder titles would be worn. If anybody here knows, do let me know.
  11. Hello all, Recently, I've started writing about the South African Police Brigade (6th South African Infantry Brigade) during world war two. I have some questions regarding equipment and uniform. Did the South African Police have the standard uniform like all UDF troops? And what kind of pith helmet did they have, did they have any pith flash or badge on it? I've only seen one picture of a South African policeman, and from what I can see, it's just a plain pith. It looks like the Canadian hawley pith, actually. If any of you have any information regarding this topic, please share your knowledge with me.
  12. Hello everyone, I am looking for photos of the South African Indian and Malay Corps during the second world war. It's very hard for me personally to find anything online, besides the few standard photos. What I'm looking for primarily is what the Indian and Malay Corps would've had on their slouch hat. Many thanks if any of you do give me some information or photos.
  13. Hello everyone, Recently, I've come across this rare shoulder title of the South African Native Military Corps. My question is, what uniform did they put the shoulder title on? Khaki drill uniform or P37 battledress?
  14. THIS ADVERT HAS EXPIRED!

  15. I have been trying to trace aircraft registrations that my father flew in as part of RASC(AD) during Operation Market Garden to what seems to be an eternity. He flew out of Down Ampney in a Dakota on the 19-09-1944, then out of Harwell in a Stirling on the 22-09-1944 (there has been conflict of opinion with this date).T/14713141
  16. I thought that this group to amongst other things a Colonial Policeman(albeit a specialised one) may be of interest to fellow medal collectors. I met Bill many times in Liverpool and he would regale me and others with his tales of Daring do, from training her Majesty Princess Elizabeth in Martial Arts during WWII to His work in the SOE, including killing an old lady who was about to give him breakfast ( and betray him) and as Scaffold Officer at executions, once producing from a supermarket bag a rope noose complete with metal eyelet and label with deceased's name thereon. He would say very little of his covert work in Palestine and a close friend of his informed me that Bill was still on a hit list. Much has been written on Bill and Roy Farran (Author of Winged Dagger) and can be accessed on the internet, a read I recommend. The photo is of Bill being invested with the BEM for his work for Charity as a Ghost Hunter, he would spend the night at haunted locations for monies donated to charity in Altrincham. The medal are DCM a copy and named to Bill as a Pte in RE,BEM,39-45 star,Africa Star with 1st Army Clasp,Defence Medal, War Medal with mention in Despatch leaf, General Service Medal clasp Palestine to Bill as Pte in RE, Civil Defence Medal for service as Aux.Fireman,St Johns LS&GC with 3 clasps to Bill as a Superintendent. It has been difficult to trace records of the DCM but it has to be remembered that many were gazetted to a pseudonym to protect identity. His service with Ferran and in Palestine Police is verified.
