We are a small unit of augmentees attached to a regiment (non of us are capbadged this regiment). During pre deployment training in Germany we accommodated in the mess and paid mess bills accordingly. We recived a mess bill fopr October that covered the charged for the whole month when we were only in germany for four days, the rest being spent on leave in the uk or in theatre. The mess was closed for the remaining time in Germany. Having arrived in theatre (Telic) we are still getting mess bills at the same rate as in Germany. We are not co-located with the regiment and have no access to the mess facilitys. Can anyone shead any light on the rules and regs ref mess bills while on ops.
