    then when your field pack inside is sbo n helmet, then where you put your standard field pack items? don't need to bring them is it?

    Before the 1st ICT, there should be a briefing as to the SOP items for the unit. I guess most units' SOP should be quite standard, with abit of difference. Things like helmet, SBO, fieldpack, messtin, kiwi+brush,personal hygiene kit i think are sop.

    Aiya, not to worry lah. Juz bring what you have. Always have time to get the rest from e-mart later. Juz make sure your uniform fits! After a few years, sometimes pants is too tight.

    In army, especially reservists, must lower IQ by a few points. Act blurr sometimes. Juz do what is necessary. Don't be hero, otherwise alway kenna extra duties when your frienz are resting. NOT unless you like this kind of activities lah. Always have a point and shoot smuggled in somewhere, never know when things can get interesing.

    All this work juz to allow someone to test out their system. Pay peanuts as well - only get pro-rated half day rank pay. Not even enough for taxi fare.

    depends on what rank u are.

    3SG u can get back ur cab fare.
    But even though my rank super low I can get back at least half of my cab fare back since my camp's damn near my house.

    For ICT, my unit, 1st day normally bring SBO and helmet can already. They will then brief on what to bring on 2nd day.

    For MOB its all the full pack items man.
