SENIORITY VS AGE OF SOUTH AFRICAN REGIMENTS

L.A. Crook

Abstract


From time to time mutterings are heard about seniority of certain C.F. Regiments and it is particularly in Natal that this seems to occur, where there is friendly rivalry between supporters of the Natal Carbineers and the Durban Light Infantry. Recently another letter appeared on the subject, this time in the April 1984 issue of "Springbok" the official newspaper of the SA Legion, when a Durban reader placed the Durban Light Infantry in number one position, pointing out that their motto is "Primus in Africa" (First in Africa), although he conceded that "the Natal Carbineers are the oldest Mounted Regiment".
