Artillery YOs - Port at Woolwich

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!
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.
