  1. Hello all,

    I'm off to spend a few days where I will be allowed in the sgts mess, what is the acceptable informal evening wear for ladies? I know it's collar for blokes....

    TIA
     
  2. Bingo wings and tattoos.
     
  3. Mess rules vary depending on the IQ of the RSM.
     
  4. stab, check for both of those, now for the clothes :)
     
  5. Little black dress and respirator should cover all bases, depending on what time you expect to leave.
     
  6. Crutchless knickers - clack exposed is always SOP's.

    Why not telephone the mess manager and ask. He/she should be able to let you know what the norm is.
     
  8. If you're a big butch lezzer - same asthe blokes.
     
  9. Now I put my sensible head on. As Bugger all said, but there will be dress-code policy even for casual dress in the units Mess rules. However the day I got promoted on posting my first day was in the mess, there was 3 x Wo1' s stood at the bar in thier dressing gowns drinking.....
     
  10. Did the dressing gowns have collars?

  12. Whatever you wear don't make it too smart- remember that your peers are only about 7 years away from council house shit.

    Happy to help.
