In its short lifetime of 27 years the 61 Mechanised Battalion Group participated in no less than 37 large-scale actions and operations, earning a well-deserved name as one of the finest fighting units in South African military annals

61 Mech Battalion Group relocated towards the end of 1991 from Rooikop Military Base near Walvis Bay to the Army Battle School at Lohathla where it was employed for the practical support for course exercise, if not involved in military operations. Here it also formed part of the Army Rapid Deployment Force.
