A set of army gear from the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) has been found dumped next to a recycling bin.
Even though the equipment, which includes things like a helmet, field pack and No.4 uniform, appear to be in pristine condition, there seem to be no takers.
Oliver Ong, who spotted the dumped SAF army equipment, said:
“This one is really ROD loh!”
ROD stands for “Run Out Date”, which refers to the end of the reservist cycle for national servicemen.
So, after ROD, can a national serviceman suka suka anyhow dump their equipment?
Government regulations dictate that these equipment must be disposed off in a way that will not result in unauthorised usage of the equipment by other people.
The equipment can also be returned to the any SAF eMart outlet or Army Logistics Base.
