Regimental badges near Swakopmund
Information about one of the least known
National Monuments in the country.
The Regimental badges can be reached 1 kilometre off the main B2 road 50 km east of Swakopmund. The turn off is indicated by a national monument sign.
You have to reach the
railway line and then walk another 100 metres to the site.
There are two badges at the site: one of the Second Durban Light Infantry (picture) and another of the Transvaal Scottish Regiment.
The badges were laid in stones (basalt and quartz) in April-May 1915 by South African soldiers who were assigned to patrol the railway line.
