    No offence to our malay friends, but sometimes I wish our SAF can adopt english for their commands. Instantly understood by all. For non-malay like me, I usually have to associate certain strings of words with certain movements, and up to now, I still don't really know what the command actually meant. Sometimes it is like monkey see monkey do.

    I guess it is our historical background that maintain the use of malay language commands in SAF.

    -Tallest to the right shortest to the left, form single rank

    Nombor ganjil satu langka ke hadapan, nombor genap satu langka ke belangkang gerak!
    -Odd number 1step forward, even number 1 step backward

    Orang yang di sebelah kanan diam! Barisan hadapan kanan pusing, Barisan Belakang Kiri pusing, kanan dan kiri pusing.

    Jadikan, tiga barisan, chepat jalan!
    -form 3 ranks, march.

    Akan menghadap IIRC is used for the section/squad to take reference from where they are facing relative to the commander AFTER execution of the command.

    i.e Akan menghadap Ke-hadapan, Ka-belakang pusing!
    -squad will face the front, about turn.(When squad is facing away from commander initially)

    stationary drill:

    open dressing - dalam buka barisan kekanan lurus
    close dressing - dalam tutup barisan kekanan lurus
    turn back/front - akan menghadap ke belakang/hadapan ke belakang pusing <-- Wrong.. Kehadapan is front, Keblakan is back
    turn left/right - bergerak ke(kanan/kiri) bertiga-tiga, ke(kanan/kiri) pusing <-- Bertiga-tiga is only applicable if in files of 3. If in files of < 3 or > 3, drop the 'bertiga-tiga'
    ----i also noe the special case when they facing back----
    step(left/right/front/back) - (satu/dua/tiga) langkah ke kiri/kanan/depan/belakang) gerak

    marching commands:

    turn right - kanan pusing (given on left leg, timing: check bang then turn right)
    turn left - kiri pusing (given on right leg, timing: check bang then turn left)
    salute (left/right) - hormat ke kiri/kanan, hormat (all given on left foot and execute salute while marching, timing check 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and cut down)
    salute front - hormat ke hadapan, hormat (given on left foot, timing check 1 bang, salute twice then turn 180 degree and continue to march off)
    turn around - kebelakang pusing (given on left foot, timing check T, L, V, bang)
    keep left/right - impek kiri/kanan <-- I think should be limpek kiri/ kenan

    Still got mahjoo I think.. And another one, I forgot the command... March on the spot...

    You still NS rite? The best person to help you is your RSM. I'm sure he will be glad to teach you the vocal commands, he might even give you a drill on the parade sq.

    I totally agree, no idea why we are still stuck in the old days. Such is the bureaucratic inertia of the system.
