not coming your shitty formal dinner would rather eat in the cookhouse with sodexo staff than have the pleasure of dining with you.

dont forget to sign it from your best mate :D :D :D

The word obedient should be small o no capital.

I'm guessing you are putting together a formal letter for him, rather than a fleamail.

Start with:

"RSM Sir,
Unfortunately, due to..."

End with "yours sincerely" as you know who you are writing to, t'otherwise keep it short & formal.

Yours sincerely,
signature
Sgt/SSgt/Wo2 etc [full name]
Bty/Sqn/Coy...

Anyways, thats how I'd do it.

That's a good way, but start with ...Sir, as you will already have his name and title in the correspondance address! keep it short and to the point, don't bullshit! no more than 3 paragraphs...Intro ....explain reason....finish!!

Better make the reason a good one, 'cos he will check as i take it from the fact that you feel you need to write a letter in the first place that it is the Mess's Christmas Ball that you cannot attend or a three line whip function!!

hope this helps
