South West Africa Territorial Force Signal Corps
Collar Badges 1980 to 1990
[Colin Hodgkins collection SWA 0003]
These are example of the South West Africa Territorial Force Signal Corps collar badges.
They are the depiction of Mercury ‘Jimmy’ atop a diamond. Struck in an antique silver finish and secured by stick pins.
The SWATF did not have their own ‘Jimmy’ style cap badge but wore the Gemsbok badge with their Signals balkie bar below the Gemsbok on a dark olive green beret. The collar badges were worn on their ‘Step-out’ Dress Uniform tunic.
