Can someone advise what a Wife Of should wear to a 22 year dining out dinner in the WO/Sgts mess?
Full set of webbing and a smile. :D

p.s. Why are wives invited to dining out do's?

Unless they are members in their own right,.

They may hear something from said veteran's early days that might just cause a bit of friction. If not then he has probably had a very boring career.

This all depends on age and edition of said wife:

If she is first issue (ie 35-40) then it would be best that she covered up wrinkles/saggy bits/signs of past pregnancies etc

If she is a newer younger edition (20-35) and slim then something revealing and short is always nice

I had my 22 year dining out last November and wives/husbands/partners werent invited to the actual dinner (which was a full Regt dinner in mess kit etc), we sat down at 4pm (curtains closed, candles lit), there were 4 of us being dinned out. All other halves and guests were invited to attend the evening function which started at 7.30pm. Of course we were all minging by the time they turned up.
Their dress was normal evening wear, but if they are attending the dining out which is in mess dress then partners should be in equivilant dress, black tie or long dress with shoulders covered and obviously full webbing.

mid-night at the dining out

If only!

over stretched green PT t shirt, with said ron hills, white stiletto's, also must have at least 10 earings in each ear, 1 nose stud, 1 eyebrow stud and fake gold rings on every finger of each hand and finally out dated tattoos from the elbow down, follow that and she will look a treat!!!

Those of you who have inadvertantly come (!) across the photos of the "Mucky Major's" Missis, will know exactly what is required as regards both dress and social etiquette.
