Mess Rules

#1
Gents/Ladies

Does anyone know of a standard set of rules for the rules of a screws mess?
I am aware every mess will have different rules, just looking if there is a general set of guide lines/JSP

Anyhelp would be much appreciated

If you use Dii to find the REME Bn sites you will find Sgts Mess rules and I think at least one had Cpls Mess rules.

Failing that trawl other unit sites on Dii and you will find them I'm sure.

Apologies, habit of picking threads off the top 50 and not realising where it originated. Cavalry mess

During my days at 4 Armd Wksps in Detmold we had a really good Cpls Mess, some epic sessions were held in that Cellar I can tell you.

My farewell drinks where every non "A" mech left the bar a minimum of once through the window, also the birth of a 5th child of a former pentathlete who went R.D. Thank feck I got away with that one, Canteen Cpl went to close the NAAFI bar to find blood & broken glass everywhere, locked up & staggered to the guardroom with the keys nothing reported - phew. Eventually staggered back up to the Hack as the sun was coming up, deathly silence in the quarter until I told Mrs Nobby that Pat had had a boy.

Kind of days that will never be repeated!!

Is it still the case that they are officially unofficial, as it were? The tankies didn't have one (usual SQN bars) but the planks and 12 Armd did.
12 Armed/1 Bn Reme Screws mess was great in Traz, having a decent adult Presiding over the mess did help though.

I think it was Sid when I was there, or did you mean the Razzman? Then again, having completely forgotten the 3RTR mess it seems my memory is a bit fucked these days.

Nobby,
What kind of dates are you talking about?

When I was at 4 Armd, (first time), in 62 the only club was the Tyler club, a complete den of iniquity and God help you if you forgot to kiss the poster girl!
Later the Tyler Club was converted into the Cpls Club, and was opened by Julie Rogers. I was the barman then.
I later started the Armadillo Club, which was in the cellar underneath the Bundesbank, over the road from 4 Armd HQ block.
Did this club get turned into the Cpls Mess?

Harry.

KRH have a rule book? When I ran the 11 H Mess I made the rules. Come to think of it I ran the RH mess for a bit, same rules. Still drinking out of the pewter mug I was presented with.

Rule 1. You do not talk about Cpl's Mess.
Rule 2. YOU DO NOT TALK ABOUT CPL'S MESS!

If it's your first night, you buy 'em.

I think, I might have got them from somewhere else.

Harry, I was there 79-83. The Cpls mess was in the block opposite the guardroom.

Nobby,
Understood, mate, by that time I was finished and out.
I did go back to Detmold a couple of years ago, and was amazed at the changes. But the real crippler was when I went down to what used to be, (in my time) the" half- way", and found it is now a shop selling haberdashery!
Some photos I took then are on the REME PAST and PRESENT site in the "In Which We Served" section.

QRs for the Army have a short list of things to be included in rules for Messes and Institutes. Nothing specific about Cpls' Messes, but should be a useful checklist.

Part II, Annex D to Chapter 5.
