The Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) will allow servicemen to bring camera-equipped cellphones into 15 more camps such as Dieppe Barracks, Mandai Hill Camp and Stagmont Camp from next month.

These are on top of the 14 camps that already allow camera phones within their premises, as part of a trial that started a year ago.

The latest move is part of a move by the SAF to progressively ease its ban of such phones in military installations and to minimise the disruption of its national servicemen who attend their annual in-camp training.

It was announced on Friday, after members of the Committee to Strengthen National Service met in Sembawang Camp.
