I was once told that the tunics were worn with one Afrikaans shoulder title and one English shoulder title, however, my example clearly shows both as English versions, so was it the case if one was English you wore English titles and if you were Afrikaans you wore Afrikaans tiles?

Hi Brian,
I may have the answer regarding the English and Afrikaans CFA titles. Was going through some documentation recently and found a copy of the CFA dress regulations.
The English title was adopted and worn from 1947 through to c.1975 (authority under ref Q66/62/1 on 18 July 47).
With the name change from 'Regt Tygerberg(CFA)' to 'Cape Field Artillery' on 1 Nov 1963, a regimental decision was taken to replace the Rt shoulder title with an Afrikaans title "Kaapse Veldartellerie"

The Battery shoulder titles were only introduced in February 1962. They were unofficial (no authority given to be worn) but were worn to c.1972/73
