Yeah, the instructors were quite sadistic when during our 1st yr of commando trg but during our operational days, we can laugh abt it. We are not that complaint type and went thru all those nonsense like sleeping in toilet, stand by cupboard in parade square, change parade, fall in toothbrush, mess tin, etc, etc. Nearly went bonkers during those periods. However, can appreciate why the instructors did that. Go thru siong mission also can take it. Make us feel like real men. Imagine those trained by Israelites . Lesser pp fall out.
Our later companies did not go thru so much nonsense cause we had a big case in our batch. Since then, the juniors had a slightly better time but less tolerance also.
