2015 JULY Combined Rehearsal Three, National Day Parade, Singapore

4 July 2015 Saturday

040715 (Sat)

The Combined Rehearsal Three (CR3), sees the families of those involved in the 2015 National Day Parade to view the parade and performances before the start of the National Education show next week.

Finally, seeing most of the vehicles armed with the 0.50 HMG instead of GPMG.

It was quite difficult to move around with barricades on both sides near the Padang area to take photos.

There were some frustrations by locals and tourists getting around because of the road closures and barricades near the City Hall area.

Signboard should have been posted near the entrance/ exit of the CityLink Mall to inform locals and tourists about the alternative access. The NSF manning the area were also not sure about getting around the barricaded area.

It was nearing sunset when the RSAF aircrafts made their way into the Padang.

I decided to just take photos at the war memorial park catching the mobile column at the form up place before entering the Padang and call it a day after that.

Cheers.
