Morning exercise and marching

Section in military refers to a small group of people, usually made of 10. 1 team leader which ranked corporal, 1 helper which ranked lance corporal and 8 privates.

So now I will briefly explain platoon, Platoon is a word used in military group, usually there are 36 people in a platoon. A platoon consist of 3 section, 1 platoon leader, 1 platoon vice leader, 1 runner, 1 signaller and 2 mortar. But the order and amount of people in the platoon may vary according to situation.

In this course we are divided into 2 platoons.

This is platoon 1

This is platoon 2

These are all of us.

We got ourselves is 5th floor, that means we need to climb the stair if we need to change our cloth get our stuff and etc. I think we climb 100++ floors every day.

Everyday we wake up 6stg in the morning, sit at the corridor and wait for others so that we can go down together.

After some song singing, we began our morning exercise.

There are lots of different wears for different situation, cloth changing is an always.

Many styles of exercise were taught by the instructor, many are new to me. Of course all of them are tiring. There are lots of exercise thought out the course. We need to strengthen our body so that we can hold and shoot properly, we also need to trained up so that we can perform well in the field.

After few days of training, when we can accept the daily exercise we are told to carry bag that filled with sand to increase the weight to further train up our body. Above is the weight of the bag being checked to ensure nobody is cheating. LOL

Even though we carrying the bag, the exercise is still the same. So the training is tougher and tougher. But after weeks of training, we are a lot lighter when we do exercise without bag. The training by the instructor is very effective.

We also do our exercise with weapon, but too bad there is no photo of it.

After morning exercise, breakfast!!!!

In every uniform team, marching is a must. We also did our marching at the beginning of the course.

We form a circle and watch how the sarjan march. We just watch and learn, surprisingly all the instructor and shout out the command loud and clear which gives us pressure. All of us try to minimize the error, as mistake of a single person will affect the whole group.

We can stand under the sun for 15 minutes without moving, hard to believe.

Our uniform is being check regularly, so that personal hygiene and tidiness of the uniform must achieve the required level.

1st few days of the marching makes my nose bleed at the night, I guess my body can't take the sun of Malaysia in the beginning. After a few days, I start to get used to it.

After we learn all those basic marching, we taught to march with weapon, this is very cool.

Even thought holding 3.6kg while doing marching is quite tiring, but enjoyed it very much.

Here is one of the exercise video.

sometimes ago

Got any Idea where is these?

This is the reserve solider basic course that I attended sometime ago. Suddenly I have the mood to blog about it. The duration of the course is one month. Accommodation and food are provided for the whole month, uniform are also provided. Physical and mental are needed to finish this course. We need to go through some physical test, blood test and body check up. Only those who pass those tests can attend the course.

There should be the photo of the main entrance but dunno why I can't find it.

There are limited photo when I am in there, as I didn't bring my camera into the camp. Because It is hard to take care of our valuable items when we are in the camp. These photos are taken by those senior that has become helper to guide and help us throughout the 1 month course.

This is the 1st thing we do when we arrive, register ourselves get military number, get uniform and so on.

After that is the hair cutting section, sarjan is there to cut our hair. Before cutting everything, he tried some funky style and give us some time to have a look at our style.

There are also many briefing and orientation at the first few days.

at night we will attend classes about strategy and military stuff. It is not easy to concentrate in the class, because morning is too tired.

How many people is sleeping in the class?

Punishment will be given if found sleeping in class.

We also learn to sing the reserved solider song and memorize some principal of solider.

It will be very sleepy during the whole course.

This is the rehearsal for the opening ceremony, we need to sing the song loud and clear. And what to do when high ranking officer comes in.

This is during the actual opening ceremony. Everyone in uniform that are iron properly, shoe that has been polished and every other things in neatest condition.

the highest rank officer will greet the higher rank officer that comes in.

Everyone keeps quiet to listen to the speech of the colonel. This silent condition cannot be found anywhere else, especially when others are giving speech.

So this is the opening ceremony of the course.

The real course begins after the opening ceremony.
