SOUTH AFRICAN DEFENCE FORCE
4 SIGNALS ELECTRONIC WORKSHOPS
1980 - 1994
The above illustration shows the South African Corps of Signals "Jimmy" with the Button badge that was based on the shoulder flash of the 4th Signals Electronic Workshops.
The design on the Button is of a paraboloid, which represents a radar screen. The background is cloud grey and the figure 4 is in spectrum green with a silver flash of lightening.
With the rationalisation of the SADF in the 1990's and the cutbacks that were announced, 4 Signals Electronic Workshops were disbanded. This left only 3 Signals Electronic Workshops in operation for the whole of the SADF.
