Haha, what were the violent mess games you speak of?CaptainPlume said:While you are being watched in the Mess, don't get too hung up about it. It does take a pretty serious faux pas to mess up here, so try not to nick silver, cop off with the staff, fall asleep in the corner or hurl and you should be OK.
On my fam visit to Larkhill we were encouraged in some pretty violent mess games by some very senior Officers. The Subbies got their revenge at PT the next morning, though. However ask yourself the question, "is it likely that, having had an night on the hoy with the Subbies, an official part of the programme is to be woken to do Phys at 0400 (about an hour after being allowed to crawl into bed) by self same & still p*ssed Subbies?"
Whatever you do don't do what two jokers did on the dinner night at my RCB, viz micturate into pint pots under the table and leave said pint pots next to your place setting & name card for the Mess staff to clear up!
When are you going to the R IRISH for a fam visit. Let me know and i'll PM you some details.Rugbyman said:Hi, i am going to 2 fam visits, one with the royal artillery and the other with the royal irish regiment. Can anyone give me any feedback on them and what to expect at my visit?? Thanks
No you don't have to have passed AOSB.Panoptes said:Hello Rugbyman,
I have no info on R Irish fam visits or RA fam visits, I'm just wondering that if you are going on the R Irish fam visit do you need to have passed you AOSB, same question with the RA fam visit?
It was all a bit horrendous. I was told the story by a still disbelieving Adjutant. The real horror was that it took place in Brunei about 3 days into a 4 week attachment, thus contributing to an atmosphere of ghastly embarassment for days until they could get him sent home.Facey_Romford said:"bursts into tears"!
I can see a Colour Sergeant at Sandhurst rubbing his hands with glee at that one...
