      I know 3 people in my class/platoon who are colour deficient but were posted to become technicians - which involves handling coloured electrical wiring! All of them are now OOC personnel. Rolling Eyes

      I am one of them. Laughing

      it is not abt siaming IPPT nia, it is his health lor... slip disc is not to be trifle with lor, cos the training of RP is not easy too.

    • Ya.. I totally agreed with u as health is very impt.
      But compare to being a Combat Engg & Mechanic which is more "siong"? If he is reluntant to be a RP, then I guess in the 1st place, his intention is wanna be a clerk.

    • RP in Camp or Bases is differ from Istana guard. The latter gotta stand straight whole day like a statue. (cant even dig nose)
      Whereas RPs got shift and u think they are discipline enough like their counterpart over at Istana??? They can tok cock, walk around like monkeys...
      Even if it requires them to stand straight, it only take few mins at most coz of VIP ( Minister, Grassroot leader) visit the Camp or Salute the Commanders only.

      see your MO if you have further problem. i am sure they can re-vocationalise you if your situation requires it.

    • FDS and CDS are a different breed of RPs.In fact, I would not call them RPs..but rather Base Defence Troopers..more like Infantrymen cross trained with POI and RP skills..
