Default Cape Coloured Labour Regiment

Acquired a badge to the Cape Coloured Labour Regiment. On the internet I could only find the Cape CORPS Labour BATTALION..are they one and the same.
Would appreciate any information about this unit and where it served etc..

I have a few African Colonial Police badges and thought this would be a good addition if a little away from my main theme..I doubt if the labour battalions anywhere got their due in terms of appreciation/glory etc...

Yes Mike, I did see that, but not much info there.

It would seem there were two labour units with a South Africa connection - the Cape Corps and the Cape Coloured.
So wanted to know if any additional literature is available on the Cape Coloured unit... strength, composition, theatre served etc...
