MILITARY RECORD PRESERVATION IN SOUTH AFRICA, 1914-1992 A HISTORY OF DIRECTORATE DOCUMENTATION SERVICE
AbstractDirectorate Documentation Service has one of the largest archives depots in South Africa. The origins of the organisation can be traced back to the First World War, although legal status was only accorded twenty five years ago (14 May 1968). This gave permanency to the SADF Archives and halted the indiscriminate destruction of archives, which had occurred since 1918.
