Dining-in nights

#1
Dining-in nights or regimental dinners, are they still popular in the Armed Forces of Great Britain?

Have you guys ever been invited?

I waited on one in training, it was fantastic, the seniors got us all totally leathered and not all of us could serve the final course

Speaking from the Officers Mess side of things, they're always a good night out, depends on the company though. Some can be like watching paint dry, as you listen to some codger prattle on about some irrelevant and frankly dull hobby horse. The good ones involve a certain amout of shenanigans (in the best possible taste), a good spectrum of people (from junior to senior officers), and a good collective sense of humour.

Dinners are great when at RD, but of course staff officers don't usually get "dined-in" in the usual way. They are one of the great things about the Regimental System. Mind you, the Royal Navy Trafalgar nights are hard to beat for gravitas mixed with a sense of fun...

RAF Battle of Britain nights are usually fun as the foxy female RAF doc/dentist/fighter controller always ends up dancing pissed on a table with her skirts up

One of the best dinner nights I went to was the Fleet Air Arm Taranto Night.
