151 South African Infantry Battalion was a motorised infantry unit of the South African Army.

History

Origin of the black battalions

By the late 1970s the South African government had abandoned its opposition to arming black soldiers.[1]

By early 1979, the government approved a plan to form a number of regional African battalions, each with a particular ethnic identity, which would either serve in their homelands or under regional SADF commands.

This led to the formation of 151 Battalion for the Southern Sothos.[2]
