There are several members of my unit who are leaving after 22 years service to their Corps and the Army in the next 12 months. Word on the street is that it is being considered to dine them out with a working lunch! I personally think that this is an outrage, it should be no less than a Regt dinner. I have made my views clear within the mess of this. Working lunches are ok as a 'bring a boss' or a 'welcome back from tour' and a seniors get together, but not as a dining out after 22 years service! Whats the view of my esteemed collegues and fellow mess members here on ARRSE?
