Mess Dress Grant

#1
Hi I posted a request for assistance with mess dress and hopefully will be sorted out in the not too distant future - thx no1 -

This post is about the Grant for mess dress - a couple of people have since asked me about it and I have not got a clue as I did not even know it existed so if anyone does have any info on Mess Dress Grants can they post what they know here.

Q's I have been asked are

How much is the grant. Is it applied for through Pay and Docs Office? can it be applied for once an assignment order has been received or does it have to wait until in post.

Cheers

Feck me, string vests & braces must be more expensive than I thought:

A pretty damning indictment of the chain of command that guys don't even know about stuff that affects them?

its a shame that this information is not passed onto them by some of the more senior members of the mess, surely at least one member should know this info???

Can I still claim if I left the Army 6 years ago? ;)
If you can afford to buy in the Farnham area you can pay for your own bloody mess dress.
