Mess functions and officer cadets.

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 am currently an Officer Cadet with the RA within the TA. I have passed Westbury and am due to go to RMAS next summer. I had a question in regards to dress code for OCdts. Our regiment have public function coming up and the dress code is Mess Dress. Obviously, having not yet commissioned I would assume that I am not entitled to wear mess dress as of yet. Would it just be a case of going in a DJ or would blues / No. 2 be acceptable?

  2. I would suggest that black tie would save from being thought to be pretentious. Do take care when passing the port.

    Black tie and a reasonable number of attractive female guests would be the correct answer.
