PostSubject: SAFTI PIONEER REGIMENTAL SERGEANT MAJORS   24th January 2009, 11:07

In all SAF camps, the Regimental Sergeant Major (RSM) is a highly respected and often feared figure. This is even more so in SAFTI which is held in awe for the high standards of discipline and regimentation set by the RSMs. Among the most prolific RSMs in SAFTI’s history were WO1 Shamsudim B. Sadan (the 1st RSM), WO1 Hong Seng Mak (better known as “Tiger” Hong), WO1 Ali Pawiro and WO1 Sng Cheng Chye. While WO1 Shamsudin, “Tiger” Hong and WO1 Sng were strict, nononsense and fastidious to a fault when it came to regimentation and discipline. However, WO1 Ali Pawiro was regarded by most as an endearing and fatherly figure. Regardless of their differing styles, all shared the same high standards and unflagging dedication. As RSMs, they inculcated respect for authority, reverence for the national flag, deference for ceremonial places like the parade square, and the importance to maintain a strict military bearing. To date, these values remain the very essence of the martial spirit which SAFTI inculcates in each graduate from its schools.
