I am honoured and humbled — this award is the result of pure dedication, contribution, commitment and teamwork of every man in the Battalion for giving their very best during in-camp training (ICT) in 2019.

“This achievement is only possible because of the collective leadership, grit, belief and hard work by all members of the Division (affectionately known as Jaguars). Winning the Best SCDF Division Award alongside the three Best NS Unit Awards in 2020 has added significance, as we commemorated our Division’s 30th Anniversary or JAGUAR30 (1990-2020), and amid this extraordinary period. We will continue to strive for excellence in all that we do towards keeping Singapore safe and secure.”

MOVING SHOWCASE

Traditionally, the Best Unit Awards presentation is witnessed at the SCDF Parade. However, last year, due to the restrictions in hosting a full-scale ceremony, the event was decentralised at the unit level and presented to the respective Commanders of the winning units.
