Regiment Port Natal was a motorised infantry regiment of the South African Army. It formed part of the South African Army Infantry Formation. As a reserve unit, it had a status roughly equivalent to that of a present-day British Army Reserve or United States Army National Guard unit.

HistoryEdit

In 1969, Durban Regiment was instructed to transfer all Afrikaans speaking unit members to a newly formed unit, Regiment Port Natal.[1]

Regiment Port Natal saw active service on internal security duties in the Natal Province.

Regiment Port Natal was assigned to 84 Motorised Brigade.

Regiment Port Natal was eventually amalgamated with Durban Light Infantry Regiment in the 1980s.
