Mess function in London

Discussion in 'Seniors' started by ben0239, May 1, 2013.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I have been tasked to organise a mess function in London and was hoping for some advice from anybody who has been put in a similar position.

    My BSM would like to visit the Tower of London and have lunch in the Beefeater Mess. I have spoken to the Tower of London today and they inform me that for this to happen we have to get sponsored by a Warder. The only way to be sponsored by a warder is contacting one directly. Therefore does anyone have a contact number for a warder who would be willing to sponsor a Royal Artillery unit.

    Secondly, accommodation is proving to be more expensive than most of my fellow seniors budgets, I was therefore wondering if anyone knew of any good, reasonably priced hotels in London. I have contacted the Union Jack club and Victory services club and I am waiting to hear back.

    Any advice/help is very much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance......
