SOUTH AFRICA AND THE WAR IN ASIA MINOR 1920-1923

Ian Van der Waag

Abstract


The need for a South African expeditionary force was again experienced only twoyears after the end of the First World War. The border conflicts and minor warswhich followed the treaties signed in Paris in 1919 and 1920, emphasized the factthat South Africa required infantry, artillery and engineer units which could bemobilized into an effective task force. The war in Asia Minor (1920-1923), inparticular, revealed severe inadequacies in both the organization of the UnionDefence Force and the defence policy of the Empire.
