Checked the letter tray and found something addressed to me. But it had ‘On Government Service’ on the envelope, and had my rank before my name in full.
Thankfully it wasn’t another ‘love letter’, or SAF100. It was a brochure from the Army’s 9th Division, telling me, Operationally Ready National Serviceman, that the National Servicemen Services Centre has gone totally ‘E’. Everything will be electronic. The next call-up notice (which should be in July) will be disseminated via SMS, mobile phone voicemail, landline voice message, fax, three times a day until I acknowledge receipt. And I can check unit briefings and instructions on a new revamped one-stop web portal. So efficient, the bastards.
