Regiment Potchefstroom Universiteit (Afrikaans for Potchefstroom University Regiment) is an artillery regiment of the South African Army. As a reserve unit, it has a status roughly equivalent to that of a British Territorial Army or United States Army National Guard unit. It is part of the South African Army Artillery Formation.

History[edit | edit source]

The regiment was formed in 1946, when the South African Army was reorganised for peacetime. It was initially called 1 Observation Battery, and in 1950 it was renamed 1 Observation Regiment. On being affiliated with the Potchefstroom University in 1960, it was given the name Regiment Potchefstroomse Universiteit.
