I am a retired member of the SAPS and I collect all kinds of SAPS memorabilia from the inception of the South African Police in 1913 right to the present.
Some of the items I am interested in include caps/hats of the SAPS, badges, ranks, medals, items of uniform, flags, books, SAP yearbooks or anything interesting which relates to the South African Police both present or past.
I am a retired member of the South African Police Service (SAPS) and I would like to purchase a blue leather uniform jacket as worn by SAPS members. I retired from the SAPS at the end of August 2015 after serving for 41 years and now regret that I did not obtain the above-mentioned jacket whilst I was still serving.
If I recall correctly, the blue leather jacket was at some point advertised in the Servamus magazine. The jacket was an optional item which could be worn with the issue SAPS uniform but, it was not issued by SAPS Logistics (Supply Chain Management).

D/W/O Petrus Oelofse retired at the end of April 2017 after serving the community with pride for more than 43 years. An astonishing achievement indeed.
