Thread: Reservist downgrading procedure advice

    Default Reservist downgrading procedure advice

    Hello people,

    I've ORDed quite sometime ago, and I will be due for Reservist pretty soon, say mid July. During these 3 - 4 years after army, I dislocated my shoulder a couple of times (specialist records at Alex Hosp.). I actually dislocated my shoulder once during NS, but the MO say.. no downgrading. I'm actually thinking of downgrading , I would like to protect my shoulder from further injuries. Whats the procedure for downgrade or medical re-examination? My reservist posting is 6 SIR, not sure if its shiong not. I'm PES B Now.

    go to a speciliast hospital and get yourself checked by yr doc again. then report to your MO with the specialist report. he will decide whether to send you for a medical board. if yr shoulder dislocation is recurrent, might downgrade to PES C cos cannot do pullup ma. cannot confirm this la, you have to ask your MO.

    Another way. U jump out of a speeding car. Make sure the vehicle on the next lane is a huge crushing lorry roaring alongside at 100km/h.

    Instantaneous permanent downgrade.

    yah.. specialist letters is a must.NSF hard to downgrade lah.. NSmen slightly easier. I feel it is a right move to protect yourself from further injuries. Cos if you were to injured your arm during training and sustain some chornic pains from it.. rest assured the army wun give a hoot about it.

    I'm not encouraging everyone to downgrade but I feel that if your case is genuine then you should fight for your own protection, but those who are perfectly well and want to siam serving their singapore subscription then I can only look down on them.

    Wish you luck in your downgrade =)

    Take care man

    a tad excessive i'd say!!

    i have always found my chief clerk very accomodating in these matters... give your's a call, the guys always report to reservist with specialist letter, and CC would arrange for medical review for them. have seen many of my platoon mates downgrade... such that my platoon is more like section+ now!!

    I lean towards the excessive.

    Same here, my unit so many ppl ROD and getting downgrades that the entire COY kinda like a platoon now.

    Still despite the huge age gap, old birds are always a pleasure to work with. Cheong together and leave no men behind.
