Latest weekly Insing column is "mrbrown and the Crabs"
The Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) always does the fun things when I am away. As I type this in Bandung, Indonesia, I read over the internet that there is a new rank called Senior Lieutenant-Colonel.
The insignia for this new rank is two SAF crests (or 'crabs') and a braid. Current Lieutenant-Colonels (their insignia is two crests) will need to become Senior Lieutenant-Colonels before they can be promoted to Colonel (three crests).
I can already hear the Lieutenant-Colonels talking amongst themselves.
LTC 1: "Eh, you heard or not? Now must be Two-and-a-half Crab then can Three Crabs leh!"
LTC 2: "Ya lor! Sian man. When will I get all my crabs? When will I see my seafood restaurant?" (cont'd)
