DEMOBILISATION AND THE POST-WAR EMPLOYMENT OF THE WHITE UNION DEFENCE FORCES SOLDIER

Francois Oosthuizen

Abstract


Following the end of the Second World War, the Union Government regarded the provision of employment as the most important demobilisation benefit to which ex-UDF volunteers were entitled. It had been laid down as a matter of policy that no volunteer would be discharged until he had been offered "suitable employment". This was defined as employment under conditions no less favourable than those existing at the time of leaving his or her previous employment in order to enlist.
