At a certain joint service mess late last year, at a Battle of Britain do, out of a total amount of 110 eligible RAF personnel, only 11 showed up. They were outnumbered by the Army whose numbers were greatly inferior. Only a few matelots went but I didn't go as I was away on a course unfortunately.Bottleosmoke said:Im PEC at a Garrison mess and the attendance there is shocking.
Im based 20 miles away from the mess itself and doing the PEC job is a real effort but something Im proud to do.
Im trying to organize a ladies dinner night next month and so far I have 2
people confirmed................................Like i say....shocking.
It all depends on the mess though as well. I've yet to go to a do in a strictly single service mess as I've always worked in Joint Service environments since being promoted to SNCO 2 years ago.
