    • You always hear all this talk about promotion opportunities, but have never met or even heard of a private, lance-corporal or corporal get promoted. Seems you have to be a spec before anything happens.

    • is it that important whether a LCP gets promoted to CPL? he’s still a man and as a reservist, be it LCP or CPL, he won’t be getting much allowance anyway.

    • LCP is good enuff la. Why bother to promote and serve extra months?

      And I remember the hijack plane incident. I think there's a Major who got promoted to COL instantly too right?

    • why would you want to be promoted during reservist? your allowance is going to be the same anyway, isn’t it? well, unless you’re still studying that is.

      Sure it can be done. Pte can be promoted to LCP than CPL within 3 in camp.

    • There are LCPs and CPLs converted to CPT(Dr) after their reservist MO course..

      heard it applies to lawyers too..as some would serve their reservist as JAGs in the Legal Affairs Department..

    • Just curious lah. You hear all this talk about promotion, but hardly ever see except with some of the specialists and officers.

      Aiyah, at the end of the day, it will motivate some of the men. Pple always like to get recognized for their efforts. However I think sometimes the sgts, pc or oc just too lazy to do the extra paper work.
