If this is indicative of your level of preparation for Sandhurst, and your general intellect, then you may be better off joining McDonalds - you may even make it to supervisor given enough time and sufficient development training.

Oh, the champagne!

Personally, I thought that this was one of the more well conceived questions that I see on here.

The food at Sandhurst was pretty standard fayre for Army messes when I went through in 95 (ie it's really quite good). I doubt that it has changed much since then. Blimey, 1995; that is a long time ago.

Food at Sandhurst - depends whether you are going into the Permanent Staff Mess, or across the corridor to the main dining hall, along with the cadets.

Permanent staff side is of a good standard, whereas the main dining hall will provide you with a menu capable of keeping you alive for 3 terms!

If you are going in to the permanent staff side, I would suggest arriving for meals early, as the LEs from the LEOC courses can put a fair bit away and if you arrive after them, it looks as if a plague of locusts has been through! Splendid chaps though, one and all.

I resemble that remark - took me ages to get the gravy stains out of the CS95.

Top quality food though; I was on 2 roasts a day. Had to hit the cold turkey on my RTU...
