16 Reception Depot was an administrative unit of the Personnel Service Corps of the South African Army.
The unit was used to mobilize white troops in the greater Western Cape area. This involved:
- the registering of young white males at schools
- the issuing of call-up papers
- confirmation of the recruits arrival
- the transport of these recruits to various allotted training units
By the early 2000s, Commands were no longer responsible for individual recruitment, making Reception Depots essentially redundant.
