      Nacionalne obrambene južnoafričke snage u sadašnjem obliku postoje Od 1994. godine, nakon post-aparhejd izbora i donošenja novog Ustava. Zamijenile su Južnoafričke obrambene snage (SADF) čiji su pripadnici uključeni u novu vojsku sastavljenu još od pripadnika bivših regionalnih vojski (u aparthejdu Homelands), raznih pobunjeničkih snaga kao što su bili Umkhonto we Sizwe Afričkog Nacionalnog kongresa, pripadnika Sveafričkog Kongresa te Jedinica za obranu Zulu Inkatha oslobodilačke stranke. 2004. godina se smatra godinom završetka inkorporiranja svih ovih snaga koje zadržavaju organizacijsku strukturu stare vojske.

      The South African National Defence Force (SANDF) is the name of the armed forces of South Africa. The military as it exists today was created in 1994, following South Africa's first post-apartheid national elections and the adoption of a new constitution. It replaced the South African Defence Force (SADF), and included personnel and equipment from the SADF and the former homelands forces, as well as personnel from the former guerrilla forces of some of the political parties involved in South Africa, such as the African National Congress's Umkhonto we Sizwe, the Pan Africanist Congress's APLA and the Self-Protection Units of the Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP). As of 2004, the integration process was considered complete, with the integrated personnel having been incorporated into a slightly modified structure very similar to that of the SADF, with the latter's structure and equipment for the most part being retained.

      The South African Infantry Corps is the largest combat corps within the South African Army. The corps originated as the Infantry Branch of the Union Defence Forces  1913. In 1915, the defence forces established the South African Overseas Expeditionary Force for war service outside Southern Africa. It included the South African Infantry, comprising twelve battalions, and the Cape Corps, comprising two battalions of Coloured volunteers. These units were disbanded in 1919. The Infantry Branch was enlarged in 1934, and the mounted rifles regiments were converted to infantry. In 1943, the Infantry Branch was incorporated into the new South African Armoured Corps, which was divided into armour and infantry branches after World War II. In 1954, the SAAC's infantry branch, and the personnel of the South African Instructional Corps, were formed into the South African Infantry Corps.

In 1860 the title Prince Alfred's Guard was assumed unofficially (after Prince Alfred, Duke of Edinburgh) and on 11 July 1874 this name was officially sanctioned as Prince Alfred's Volunteer Guard. The name was later changed to Prince Alfred's Guard. The Regiment first saw action in 1877, against the Gcaleka tribesmen in the Battle of Umzintzani during the Ninth Frontier War. In 1913 the regiment was redesignated the 3rd Infantry Regiment (Prince Alfred's Guard) of the Active Citizen Force of the Union Defence Force, but regained its former name in 1934. During WWII, the regiment first served as link battalion for the 2nd Brigade in North Africa. The PAG was subsequently converted to an armoured unit and saw further active service with the 11th South African Armoured Brigade, South African 6th Armoured Division in Italy as a tank unit. The PAG also took part in the many skirmishes making up South Africa's "Border War" during the post-war period.
