    Liew.. olive green?! Like my coverall the name tag. =^( And it's more expensive somemore (because the auntie says it's more "special"). That's why u see some people the coveralls the name tag is camo. Now No.4 also use olive green. WTF.. So many things to mod/add i think those golden mile/beach road tailors all like strike lotto siah...

    just imagine the amount of $ they make... and imagine how many soldiers are affected by the changes.

    NSmen, reservicemen, etc etc etc.... that is alot of $ i would say. its more like everyone working at beach road looking forward to their well awaited "bonus"

    Arrow Re: new patches for SAF uniforms

    I believe that it has to do with the close relationship that the Singapore army has with the US Marines .

    Another reason is that for international mission where some of the army also uses the same SAF pattern, ERDL, for example countries like Thailand and Pakistan.

    HTH.

    3 patches n 5 uniform................... tell the RSM that cuz the CQ nv issue enough, so only 3 of your 5 uniform will have the patch. So, he cannot give u extras when he catchs you without the patch. He cant make u go buy additional patches directly anyway
    The patch thingy is fine lah. I used to have my unit crest velcroed onto my SOB. After i ORDed, the crest patch is sticked to some forgotten place on my SOB. But i wonder lah, what happen to NSFs who hold logistics vocation. During NS, they are in Armoured, than in reservist, they are assigned to Infantry. They need to change their patches again? Troublesome

    its pretty silly to have so much information on the uniform. why not also sew what we had for breakfast or lunch on the uniform. Lets hope the reservebits dont need man.

    Allow me to explain. This issue with identity came about during Ops Flying Eagle. Over in Aceh, SAF personnel were identified by their LACK of identification on the No. 4.

    So, to give us some identity, the policy makers decided to add on the country tag, arms badge, formation badge, and all that jazz.

    Enforcement date is currently 1 Jul 06. All the necessary badges should be available at your local E-Mart for credit purchase in the near future.

    As for the Singapore tag the entitlement is 5 for NSFs and 3 for Regulars and NSMen I think.

    more patches! more more! i wanna look like a boy scout or boys brigade!! more!!!

    if you guys haven't heard this story from 'close ties' with the u.s. marines

    Few years back, in a certain SIR, (big hint: near gombak ) the US Marines was hosted there for some friendly exchange. During one of the times when our SAF platoon was falling in, the marines was looking from the upper floors and one shouted down.."hahaha look at that. what are those? BOY SCOUTS?!" and they all started laughing loudly. Being the disciplined SAF soldiers and good hosts, there's nothing the platoon can do.

    I guess someone must have heard it and said "yeah.. why not we make them as the marines suggested and put more patches on them!"
