Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Hello I am doing some research for a story that I am writing... I wanted to know what the UK- British Terms for Army Kitchen and the ranks?

    Is Sergeants' Mess is the same thing as Enlisted Dining Facility?

    Is the Canteen is the same thing as kitchen or cafeteria?

    If you can help me I would much appreciated!!!

  8. Problem is that we know what they are, but don't necessarily know what they correspond to.

    A Sergeants' Mess is a sort of club/dining facility/home for Sergeants (and usually WOs, where it would be a Sgts and WOs Mess). It combines single living accommodation, messing facilities and a bar. There will be a similar Mess for Officers too.

    I'd guess that an Enlisted Dining Facility would be more like a junior ranks mess, which is generally just a dining facility with accommodation and bar facilities located elsewhere.
  9. If she was 14 would you have chased her away with threats of harsh font?
  10. Are you really allowed only one?? Genuinely don't know!
  11. Depends if it's PAYD - if so, you can have one for 11p and the second will cost you £8.46.
  12. British Spy Story like The Avengers!!! Where would a Sergeants Major eat at? What do you call their Dining Facility?
  13. Sorted that for you.
  14. Sergeants Major are Warrant Officers, so eat in the WOs and Sgts mess.
  15. No, I would have groomed her convinced her to visit locked her in my pantry an then watched the media storm surrounding it, eventually selling her in to the underage prostitute business for some dosh and gettin rid of her.
