Artillery YOs - Port at Woolwich

Discussion in 'Gunners' started by crossbelt, Jun 17, 2009.

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. Does anyone remember being encouraged to buy port to lay down in the Woolwich Officers' Mess? I recall it was the 'done thing' so everyone pitched in for a case or two. It was good value anyway and would only appreciate etc etc. Some 20 years later the port would be well worth a test!
  2. ahhhhmmmmm............. no!

    ......... given we lost Woolwich I'd suggest it's a big ask to expect that someone remembered to take some YO's port down to Larkhill although I do recall they sold some off before the move.

    The Mess did used to buy port obviously, to lay down. I went to one Autumn Dinner once when they served 1963 Port for 150. Bloody wonderful.
