My BMT Companion

Most people may have thought that my 3 months of BMT (Basic Military Training) companion at ITD (Infantry Training Depot) is my rifle…but the answer is NO. My companion for that 3 months was my portable radio;

It was rather bulky and the tuning of the radio station was difficult with those dial face;

Though it’s called Solid State Radio but I believed it’s a mixture of ICs and Transistors.

Anyway, most of my bunk mates had one each though of different brands  and models. I remember I bought my at the Golden Mile Hawker Centre upper floor where they sold lots of army’s goods. Those army’s goods stalls are still there now. Well the radio was probably our daily night entertainment then while cleaning our rifles and boots.

Compare to my daughter’s MP3 with radio now;

So what is your BMT’s comapnion? Come to think of it, that radio was already 26 years old as I bought it around 1982.
