    Deal with it bro.


    SISPEC is nothing, many others are doing worse.

    And things are much easier.

    Always remember, the sun will also shine again, and whatever tekan session will always end. Besides your mummy can always call the MP and complain of abuse if the training is too hard.

    Chin up! Its only a few months.

    You will make plenty of friends and have many stories to share over beers for the rest of your life.
    Pictures always should have a special story behind it or a special meaning to the photographer.

    good luck. you're going to have commandos/SOF/rangers and guardsmen (mainly) as your trainers... i wonder if CO/SISPEC still go on the grad march with BSLC/ASLC trainees... in his FBO...
    Yah! I did the grad march with the CO nearly 10 years ago!

    When I crossed over to OCS, was really happy that they don't do fast march in FBO like sispec.

    You are right, in OCS we do not do fast march in FBO

    WE RUN!

    What kind of OCS did you do ...

    I carried my FBO, my GPMG and ran. My buddy did the same with a 84mm. Some sad chap had his FBO, and a signal set, and we are talking the old French made 10kg ones.

    Different times, I guess..

    Cheers

    I was blessed with long legs, so that probably helps...


    TS and all NS folks

    Use good socks, I use Thorlo Combat socks, and good shoe pads from Avia.


    It helps trust me. And get your pack conditioned, sponges and all to make it comfy. Put some lemon or preserved plum in the drink, makes it taste better and gives you salt.

    That guy must be some fug.

    Me too had an experience when doing my annual ATP shoot during active time. The guy beside me got up and dunno what he did and his rifle just misfired. I got a shock as we are preparing for the 300m-200m rundown. The round shot into the wooden panel above us and thank god it didn't ricochet off and back.

    Good bicycle tights worn under the pants during route march/fast march will go a long way to avoiding abrasions.

    Maybe there should be a thread on tips for NS..

    Edit: Apparently, one thread was just started.

    I was from 2nd batch BSLC, wonder anyone else same batch.

    My days in SISPEC were one of the most memorable, no 'real stress' or responsibility, no need to worry about recession or money no enough - like one of my company mate used to say, everyday you wake up in the morning (or at night!) just chiong and chiong, and then when all finished, sleep. Then next day wake up chiong again, no need to think so much. Important thing is build good relationships with your section/platoon mates, and enjoy the ride!

    ASLC? BSLC?...

    Good ole SISPEC didn't have either.

    (Of course the SAFINCO veterans would have something to say about this...)

    "SufferingCo" veteran reporting!

    I recall my batch was sent to Brunei for jungle training as an experiment, then the idea was canned for subsequent batches. We had a memorable CSM, Encik Lim, Commando, Ranger etc, scary guy.

    But hey, I felt I really earned my corporal stripes at the end of the course.

    sispec got some memorable training

    exercise nut cracker and exercise warrior.

    3days digging......

    i still rememebers 7-8 years when doing my sispec in tekong the training schedule was like ****

    wake up 5am, 5bx follow my 10min breakfast, then change to outfield lesson after that SOC. lunch time, same eat very fast, then after that classroom lesson and follow by IPPT.. after dinner got classroom lesson also.....

    i dont really have a good memories of my sispec days becuase i met all this young people from saf education center who are sooooo childish and act like they are the whole world......in the other hand all my core mates were feeling the annoyance by this big group of trainee too.
