Last Sun, Daddy got an invitation to visit the Naval divers of Singapore. It was an opportunity to showcase our elite divers’ capabilities to grassroots leaders.
Singapore Naval Diving Unit (NDU) is a special task force under Singapore Navy. Daddy is very curious to find out what are the attributes of a frogman (NDU’s mascot is a muscular frog), and their motto is “Nothing Stands In Our Way” !
We get to see divers perfect drown-proofing techniques. This survival skills allow divers to stay afloat longer under hostile situation.
Trainers will rip off your oxygen tanks ! Water confidence is a must for every trainee (also called tadpole)
The highlight of our tour must be the “Rigid-hulled inflatable boat” (RGIB) ride. These boats are packed with 480Bhp horsepower, and allow our special forces to cut across rough seas at up to 80kph.
Gulf of Sembawang, and we came close to Singapore Causeway
Thank you Mindef PR for the invitation, we had an adrenalin filled Sunday morning. More action photos can be found at SengkangBabies fanpage.
Meanwhile, Boon Kang will be ready when his unit SKB recalls him.
