Hi all, I am currently on resettlement but attached to an artillery Sgts Mess and am getting threatened with Xmas duties about non payment of my mess bill of £146. Thing is, I am not going to the Xmas ball which I know is a £180 refund which I am still waiting to get taken off my bill which will leave me £34 in credit. They are saying I have to pay then get back the £180 but I know they are a nightmare to get money back from. Do I have a leg to stand on? I also have paid into their presentation fund for 2 years but do not want a presentation from them. Can I offset future bills with this or will I again have to fight to get my own money back? Finally, is there a recognised point where I can officially leave the mess and stop paying bills as they are off on tour next march/april or am I stuck with it till my last official day of service? People in my admin office and mess are very unhelpful. Cheers, Dun.
