Abstract

On 1 January 1916, the Union Defence Force assumed control of the South West African branches of the South African Garrison Institutes (SAGI) and five months later, the branches at Potchefstroom and in the Cape Peninsula. Now in 1991, it is an apt time to reflect upon the 75 years of service provided by the South African Defence Force Institute (SADFI), to the South African Defence Force and its predecessor.
