NS Posting HELP !!

Hi Guys,

I've been posted to 8SIR as an RP (Trainee) reporting at Clementi Camp next Monday.

May I ask
- How is Clementi Camp bunks and food like? Can we OTOT walk to cookhouse or canteen?
- Is it like BMT where we have to wake up at 0530hrs and do area cleaning and other sai kang?
- Can we bring iPhone and the iPhone charger in
- How are the CSMs / RSMs / OC / PC / Enciks?
- What must we expect from the course?
- After graduating from the course is it possible to get a 8-5 relax lepak vocation posting?
- Can we book in in CV attire and CV bags?
- Is there the sickening route marches and field camp and Urban Ops where we stay over there?
- Is there nights out everyday?
- Do we get key holidays and weekends burnt?
- Is there IPPT and the dreaded SOC?
- Can we bring any food into camp or tabao outside food?

Please answer me this .... thank you

P.S. Coming from an uber welfare coy in Tekong ..... Should I expect culture shock ?

Culture shock. Most likely.
Heard the training program has changed.
Don't worry. Just listen to instructions.

my friend is in 8SIR RP and its like advance BMT. You cannot OTOT go canteen, must fall in 0530 etc. i think u all will have to do trainfire package like M203, GPMG, SAW meaning go live firing. UO is definitely must. After graduating, if u kena airbase, some got 8-5 but mostly is stay in work 2 day off 2 day. Route marches i not sure but nights off i think 1 week once if OC happy.

once u post out, ur weekend and PH might burn depending on ur duty schedule. IPPT is for all Pes A and B so regardless of vocation sure have. SOC i not sure but if really got is VOC liao. Need do a very long rundown

Why? I heard that some people say its relaxed while some say its xiong. I do know that RPs posted to air force or navy is going to be xiong. But is navy RPs distinguished on the BMT eposting?

I think they'll distinguish once you go there.
Or you can ask your commanders. They should know whom you are under.

1. Bunks dun need too clean too often. Food wise is not too bad because it is mainly a reservist/hq camp. Need to march as trainees canteen is right under your block.

2.Wake up 530 and got other activities . not so much physical

3.iPhone is allowed in the camp, can bring and if they forbid just surrender and bring non cam phone

4.I do not know, most of the people I know are not in 8 sir liao.

5.Quite slack thats all i can say

6.Most likely not. Got shift system

7.Yes

8.Got light field traning thats it.

9.No not every day nights out.

10.If you are on duty/standby holidays are gone.

11.Got ippt but i dunno whether got VOC

12Yes
