The Battalion, which also became known as the most successful counter insurgency unit of the SADF, was comprised mainly of former FNLA and other anti-communist fighters from Angola who had sworn allegiance to the South African government. Together with their South African officers, these troops forged a formidable Battalion that became known as the best operational Battalion of the South African Defence Force – if not one of the best in the world.

The South West Africa and Angola Border War. This is a SADF patrol final inspection (thought to be 5 SAI), this was usually performed by the section leaders before the platoon moves out. His job was to check that every man's kit is in full order. Here he checks the ammunition and kit of the man allocated the 40 mm multiple grenade launcher. Photo courtesy of the Outapi War Museum.
