Tshwane Regiment is an infantry regiment of the South African Army. As a reserve unit, it has a status roughly equivalent to that of a British Army Reserve or United States Army National Guard unit.

HistoryEdit

Before December 2002, the name "Tshwane Regiment" was 'recently' approved to be in line with the area where the Regiment is situated. This Regiment was originally established as the Yskor Pretoria Commando in 1969 and over the years several commando units and regiments, such as Hillcrest, Munitoria, Regiment Pretorius and 2 Regiment Noord-Transvaal were amalgamated with Regiment Schanskop. Regiment Schanskop appears to have become the Tshwane Regiment around 2002. Members of this Regiment have been deployed internally and externally of South Africa. The Regiment has been deployed in the Soutpansberg Military Area and during elections.[1]
