On Wednesday, I attended the National Day Parade media briefing at The Float @ Marina Bay. The main focus was the regimental parade. For the first time, the parade will feature a Nation's March where 140 servicemen from the Singapore Armed Forces and Home Team will march out from the seating gallery and they will form up with the other contingents on the floating platform. I'm sure spectators will enjoy the up-close 'C2D March'!
The parade commander for this year's parade is a NSman. I think that's just awesome. Lieutenant Colonel (LTC) (NS) Clarence Tan has the distinct honour of being the parade commander. The parade regimental sergeant major is Master Warrant Officer Tamizh Kannan and colors regimental sergeant major is First Warrant Officer Pathmanaban S/O Pitchayia.
|LTC Clarence Tan is also the founder and CEO of GlobalRoam Group Ltd|
Besides the officers above, I met some of the participants from the various uniform contingents as well. Some of them were wearing the new Republic of Singapore Navy and Republic of Singapore Air Force pixelised uniforms...
