HERITAGE – operator’s creed
The Official version as it is used by the SA Special Forces at suitable events.
As the compass rose depicts,
I am willing and prepared to be deployed.
in any direction, anywhere in the world,
under any circumstances, day or night.
Even if I am called upon to perform tasks in isolation or in extreme conditions,
I am willing to pay the ultimate price, will conquer my fears, and will succeed
with the guidance of my compass – the Word of God.
My word is my honour, my duty to serve,
and my pride is the laurel dagger.
I will not bring shame upon myself or those with whom I serve.
I will not fail Special Forces, nor my comrades.
My ultimate goal is to succeed in every mission
And then to strive to succeed again.
