Navy - divers?


Navy divers, Pilot, Commando - first, must be PES A, if i'm not wrong. Then, during BMT, there'll be talent scouts watching their performance, a slew of tests like I mentioned...Then, there's actually 1-on-1 review with PC, so recruits could indicate their preference which vocation they'd like to go.

My DH was identified for Commando unit during BMT, i.e. he has the making of a Commando (perfect eyesight, top marksman, PES A, NOT the only child/son - though this has changed in recent years).

But he expressed his burning desire to become a Pilot, hence they assigned him to Air Force to be trained as RSAF pilot.

As for the BMT assignment, i.e. SCDF, SPF, SAF for BMT...that could be based on the pre-enlistment test results and CMPB needs of the day.


It's a bit like supervisor appraisal at the workplace. Your boss asks you which portfolio you prefer, or tells you you're suitable for another department to expose you, and you reply OK, I'll try or Sorry, I don't think I like to do that kind of job...

they are trying to attract female sign-ons...hence the use of the prettier SAF ladies as poster girls on their TV commercials and ads.

To my old soldier at home - but I guess it train their characters v well - my hub army frens are mostly doing well one way or another - diamonds forged under pressure ... Hahaha ...The parachuting is no joke n no no fun - hub shared 18 yo young men need to get push down by officer off the the heli for jump
N need to remember to pull the parachute - thus he never like bungee or sky diving - last time they need to jump abt 30 ish times in their 2.5 yr NS life :( not sure abt now - Mayb more :(

Now I know why your family always goes skiing...Must be in your hubby's DNA...Usually if the head of the family is extremely adventurous, outdoorsy, they will encourage whole family to do more extreme sports together! E.g. my dh possesses an MPA pleasure craft licence, so he will drag us out on boating trips.

Not just CDO need to jump, some in RSAF too. I think my bro also jumped many times.

Hubby keeps drumming must at least be qualified for SCS (Specialist Cadet School)

I was looking at the photos uploaded for the 6th Jan intake.

Gosh, my boy looks like a pri sch kiddo in size :laugh:

How did those other boys manage to look so adult size?

:rotflmao:


maybe they are more "chow lao"? :rotflmao: Maybe some were in rugby teams? :evil:

SCS = those in signals, combat engrr, medics?

I know an officer cadet's allowance is higher. aniwaes, not a lot of :moneyflies: lah...

Think it's a little different now. The boys who are going to be naval divers and pilots etc have already been identified, before they even sat for the A levels. They're going for their training a little later than this BMT batch.

Elder boy went to see the medical officer and took some medicine, given light duty today. I did not ask what are light duty :wink:

Symptoms are sore throat and running nose, no fever. Another boy in the same bunk has the same symptoms.

after the basic training, storeman, admin clerk etc are considered as light duty.
