A SHORT HISTORY OF THE DEVELOPMENT OF SOUTH AFRICA'S NAVAL UNIFORM

W.M. Bisset

Abstract


In 1975 Mr Andrew Mollo's Naval, Marine and Air Force Uniforms of World War 2 was published.' This fascinating book contains very little information about our naval uniforms during World War II and since so little has been written about this subject and the uniforms worn by the SA Navy and its predecessors the following article has been compiled. This is a topic on which one could easily write a book and South African Naval Regulations and Instructions Chapter 15 Uniform and Dress Regulations, with amendments to February 1974 is 44 pages long. In December 1968 there were 732 naval uniform badges. Recently further uniform changes were promulgated and it is understood that SAN Uniform and Dress Regulations are soon to be revised.
