Let's talk about NS... good memories or nightmares?


Recommended Posts

who never sign before?? bloody AFVs got so many things that can go missing ....

 

My sgt lost his NVG, can you imagine that ?!?!?!? :blink: Think its ten over thousand, but managed to bargain down to an amount a NSF can pay [laugh] After we ORD-ed, the NVG "mysteriously" re-appeared in armskote <_<

 

this type of things happened all the time. One time my platoon lost a signal set mouthpiece, then somehow found one earpiece to bargain with signal storeman to contra... that was at 38 SCE.

 

At SOCE, we lost a large camou net... can't remember how we settled it.

 

At 46 SAR, we lost GPMG gun mount as forgot keep inside vehicle. Then night time PC indented land rover we went to RATC tank park shopping... another one quite common was the antennae of vehicle signal set...

can lah. above 1500 must LEFT 1. (opps forgot abt that just now)

 

wah, that one if can remember tio 4D man. too many steps [laugh]

 

I never had the chance to fire more than 800m but the 75mm is very accurate within 1000m if bore sighting is done swee swee.

 

anyone heard 40SAR got one officer kena sign 20+ extra because they brought one live round back into the camp after live firing?

who here signed 1206 before?

 

what was the largest amount of $$ you paid?

 

The silly thing about 1206 is that the amount they charge is always based on the original cost. SAF has no concept of depreciation at all. If the signal antenna cost $3k, they will put down $3k as the amount (of cos subjected to negotiation) even if the item is 10 yrs old. [mad]

46SAR is damn old and eerie, esp the vehicle shed. one of the prowling check point is at the rear gate that lead to Area D.

 

after one or twice was Ok lar... to me the worst is when there was troop returning from area D... esp after a heavy downpour...

bloody hell have to walk all the way from guard room to the rear to unlock and open the gate....damn muddy.

 

and not forgetting the long walk from the guard room to the main road to take bus home on Saturday. It was even longer when we returned for reservist when it was at the old RATC which was further in.....

 

Yes, ONCE ARMOUR ALWAYS ARMOUR.

46th SAR Mono Intake 94

and who want to bring live round back? so big how to hide, unless in tank. And if in tank, sure got many people tio. All the safety cmdrs will kenna, ammo spec also kenna. rounds vs cartridge will not match .. The bloody whole lot will not be able to go back to camp .....

Sorry, don't know of a KK Tan.

 

B Coy only guy I know (and most popular) one was Bernard Tan, cos he was a scholar, friendly guy and had trained with the US Army's Amoured Infantry.

 

B Coy also had a CSM that time....he quite funny one, skinny guy but can't recall his name, everyone gave him a nickname one ??

 

Aiyoh... The guy is as i recall Bernard Tan KK.

Agree he's friendly.

 

Not sure abt B CSM, but the A CSM had a nickname called Ang Deh Kor (red underwear). Dunno how did that come about though...

 

Ang Teck Hock was one of my corporal way back to 1978/79 and we gave him that red underwear name... am surprised that nickname stays till today

should be 92 or 93. what happened was after night shoot, they found 1 live 75mm round missing. as it was night time they didn't do a thorough check. that round was hiding 6 o'clock of the loading drum of the SM1 (still remember how the loading drum looks like?) which you can't see from the top hatches unless you go inside the tank. so they drove the tank with the live round back to camp. next day report to higher authority and I think RSM found the round.

I think safety officer was the one that took 20+ extra given by CO.

 

Wong An Chai was one of the OC in our unit which is holding a Maj rank. the rest of our OC are capt.

I think he promoted to chief Armour before leaving for DBS bank.

Anyone from Armor tried this during wallaby?

On a clear night sky, take out your NVG and use it to look at the sky...

 

I did and I swear I roughly saw this:

It was one of the most beautiful nights I've ever seen in my life...

I remembered some of sm1 had cracks on their hull. I was attached together with STA pple to 42 SAR I thk to mend the crack.

we had to dismantle everything down to the hull and let STA guys mend the crack before assemble back. it was very siong, thk there were 10 or 15 affected vehicle.

I heard it was due to too much upgrading works and the hull couldn't take it and crack under fatigue sweatdrop.gif

 

I also remembered there was a few case of tank overturned and commander killed. one of it was parked at our workshop. we burned incense on the turret and for weeks it had a very strong medication smell. thk it was in 95 from 41SAR

 

our SM1 are all over stretch lah. our commanders was tasked to clear some APFSDS rounds as they are going to expire.

at the range and after firing a few rounds, the latches that hold the engine cover gave way! either the rounds are too powerful or the structure of the tanks is giving way.

 

during my time, we are already asking our commanders how come our tank gun got no stabilizer? how to shoot on the move?

 

Halt-Shot method loh.

SAF accounting concept is the thing will last forever and unbreakable.

 

It is always a nightmare to Tloan the radio equipment too many parts to acct for. Heard if CE lost still must go DB
