Looking for information about WWII SAAF squadron badges/insignias

Hello everyone,

Were there any SAAF fighter/fighter-bomber squadrons in WWII that had their own badge or insignia? So far, I've only managed to find about 1-2.

Any help is appreciated!

Looking for WWII era pictures of the Pretoria Highlanders

Hello everyone,

Are there any pictures available online of the Pretoria Highlanders? It seems to me that there isn't much information available on this regiment, so I decided to ask here instead.

Greetings irishhorse,

Thank you for confirming my suspicion. Perhaps a stupid question, but was the peaked cap with regimental badge standard issue for all officers of the Union Defence Force?
