Default South African Signal Corps

Hi all,

I am new to this forum.

I am an avid collector of SADF Signal corps memorabilia having served in the SADF in the 80's and was attached to 2 Signal Regiment and then 7 Signals and lastly Sector 10 Signals in Oshakati, South West Africa.

I thought I would share my modest collection here with the hope of getting any feedback as to what I am still missing. :-)

I look forward to chatting with you all.

Mark

Hello again Mark,
If possible could you show a closer photograph of the following:- On the display board bottom row, (immediately right of the belt & buckle) what is this shoulder flash? And the next one? (to the left of the SWA breast badge) And the one above that? (to the left of the Zambia arm shield) I don't think I have seen them before, any information would be appreciated. Thanks Mark.

Phil.
