Introduction As far as can be ascertained at the moment the Kwazulu-Natal Regimental Association was formed during the 1976. It comprises former regular and reserve members who not only live in Kwazulu-Natal Province but includes non-resident members - two as far afield as the UK.

Members residing in the Natal Midlands formed their own Branch of the Association some years ago, mainly due to distances involved in attending the various functions and activities, so the data quoted hereunder excludes the Natal Midlands Branch as such, although there is a strong 'cross-membership' of both interests.

Kwazulu-Natal currently has a paid up membership of 188, which includes 20 'non' -residents. However, we know of at least another 34 former colleagues whom we hope one day will come aboard (before the ship sinks!) A feature of this province is the formation of six separate Stations, each 'controlled' by a Member in Charge. However, only four (Durban South, Durban North, South Coast and Durban West) are active at the moment.
