Mess Kit RCT

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. Does anyon know where I can buy an RCT Mess Kit? I need one because I think that it would be more in keeping than a DJ to support my son at his unit functions?

    Email is

    Thank you

  2. That's an interesting one John. You could try the tailors shop in Deepcut, they might be able to steer you. You know what, I have never seen a retired officer, non commissioned or otherwise, wearing mess kit; they usually wear DJ with miniatures if applicable. Plus the RCT mess kit was absolutely gopping.
  3. Oh, and another thing, you might want to try your luck in the RLC forum.
  4. Thanks for that Drag, nice to know someone else had a high opinion of the Mess Kit.

    As you know we get what we get and there is bugger all we can do about it.

    Take your point on the DJ, just think we look like Arfur Daly at posh do in those ! Would you buy a used car etc etc....

    The RCT Mess Kit properly worn will look the dogs and the youngsters will have something to talk about, don't you think??
