Let you know when he has his posting on or around 18 Mar 2019.
Guards are usually direct enlistment. My son's friend was enlisted on 2 Jan direct into Guards. They will stay throughout the 22 months and future ict in Guards. Their commanders in Tekong are also from Guards.

If your son is not in the current Guards direct enlistment, then he will wait for posting after BMT.

I thought Jan and April are JC intakes while Poly intakes are in August and October?

Maybe don't be so elitist.

Anyway "generally" speaking, yes that is the case, but that doesn't mean people from JC wouldn't end up in intakes with where the majority are from poly, vice versa.

There are also people from other non JCs and Polys.

Thanks God. I hope he won't be posted to any of the Guards Units.

In my opinion, Guardsmen are one of the most unappreciated vocations. They train hard like the Commandos, but yet didn't get the recognition (with red berets) or shortened reservist cycles.

I think that's probably right. Spoke with a nephew yesterday who is graduating from Ngee Ann Poly this year (not sure which month). He will be enlisting in Sep this year.
