Spoke to my DS last night doing his BMT in Tekong. He said sometimes had very short time for lunch. Only got about 10 minutes if you happened to be at the back of a long queue.

As a result, some recruits rushed to get their food and this resulted in accidents. Heard one recruit fell and hurt his leg very very badly and needed bandage. He was given MC like one week.

Because of this, they have been warned not to rush. Anyone caught rushing will be charged with disciplinany actions. 😠😠😠
they get more disciplining to do.. but of course self discipline must come first before anything else.

I believe in cause and effect.

Of course the recruits need self discipline. But sometimes difficult to blame them when they were not given enough time to eat.
