    Arty relac wan la. Not as siong as the other vocations. Among the 7 combat formations, Arty and Sig are the 'better' ones. Not as tough as the rest.

    My bro C9L2 but he goes outfield cos he armour tech, have to tend to the tanks. Not at frontline but still outfield.

    What you mean arty relax? Last time my Battery Commander siow made us camouflage the gun several times in the rain. The camo net isn't as light as you think and its even heavier when its wet. Try ramming iron pickets into the ground when the ground is filled with stones and you have to do this within timing. Failure to meet timing means it has to be done again and again till timing is met. Not to mention during my training we had to unload dummy rounds. Each round weights 45kg. To takan us last time they made us load and unload rounds from a 7 tonner. I had several friends injured in training.

    Every vocation is siong in its own sense. Most impt thing is to fight as a cohesive force should the need comes. Taking abt this, hiaz, IPPT window open le, better to start training for IPPT soon...

    i overheard a conversation between two friends, which i found disturbing.
    I wonder how true it is...

    " Lower PES status people are considered 2nd class singapore citizens "

    this was said by a sergeant ranked, serving as a regular.
    There's another 3rd class, but to even mention it would be controversial.

    I thought modern singapore no longer had such classifications? or is it those "unofficial" ones....like "white horse" ?


    Just wanna find out if that statement said by a regular, holds any water.
