Oribi Commando: An Official History – Laurence Palmer

A5, 246p.

SKU: ISBN: 978-1-998975-25-9 Categories: ,


Lt. Col. Laurence Palmer, the retired Officer Commanding Oribi Commando and Sector South Coast 1980 to 1991, is proud to announce the publication of the new History of the Oribi Commando & its Antecedent & Associated Units 1865 to 2007. The published History of Oribi Commando is the culmination of 31 years of work and my determination to record and publish the History of Oribi Commando.

The History tells the story of the Commando from its establishment in 1980 until its closure in 2007. Having served as its Commanding Officer from 1980 to 1991, and in particular the last 5 years as Officer Commanding Sector South Coast, I was the key figure in the Unit. I believe that the Unit and its members made a huge impact on the Lives of our communities, and I regard it as a privilege to have served the South Coast and my Country in this way.

I trust that you will enjoy reading the book, and that it will be a valued item of South African history and militaria on your book shelf. Join the conversation by joining the Facebook Group “Oribi Commando Friends”.
