History

Origin

With the reorganisation of the Citizen Force in 1959/60, the headquarters and three independent anti-aircraft batteries were combined into one regiment known as the University of Cape Town Regiment.

The regiment mobilised during the state of emergency during that period and was equipped with 3.7 inch guns. The regiment was organised with three batteries of two troops each with a radar troop.

7 Light Anti Aircraft [1] was raised from its mother unit, UCTR, on 1 April 1969, when excess personnel from Cape Garrison Artillery was absorbed.

In 1988, during Operation Packer, 72 Battery supplied air cover at the Chambinga Gorge near Cyuito Cuanavale in Angola.

Command Affiliation

Initially the regiment was assigned to 7 South African Infantry Division, but with the raising of 9 Division, it was transferred to the new organisation.
