Officers life in the army

#1
I would like to know, if anyone can help me with a few questions I have regarding an officers life in the army ,i am doing a bit of research for a book i am writing. i have looked on the normal factual sites ,but there are still a few questions i need to have answered ,so if anyone can answer them i would be very grateful ,. i am a civilian by the way .
ok here we go , 1.Do officers who are single have on-suites in their living quarters or do they share?.
2 Do officers do there own laundry or cleaning ?
3. How many days a week does a officer have off for r & r ?
4. What roughly, would be a typical day for an officer ?
5. Would officers eat in the officers mess ? (stupid question I know ,which I think I know the answer to already lol)
The next few questions are regarding the officers mess kitchen ,I have a little knowledge of this as I lived with some one who was a civilian attached in the OM kitchen catering for the officers at the Hounslow barracks in Middlesex.
1.Do they still have TV dinners and would a officer be in charge of the OM kitchen ?
2.Is the officers mess only used by the officers or can the sergeants use it too ?
anyway many thanks in advance to anyone that may be able to help :D

1. Officers are always stabled with their horses, they will share the facilities.

2. No, Batman does this for him.

3. Typically? All of them.

4. Monday.

5. And the other officers mess.

5.1. TV's are no longer eaten in most messes, officers are always in charge of the om.

5.2. Sergents can use the mess when the officers have finished with it.

If you are writing a book I suggest your spelling improves dramatically.

Stop picking, at least it's in English!

I omitted the puzzling drowning man logo that you inexplicably felt was English.

1. Do officers living quarters have their own on-suite or do they have to share bathrooms?.

A: Of course not, how would the batman be able to scrub all those backs at once.

2 Do officers do there own laundry or cleaning (regards their living quarters) ?

A: No need. Officers are always immaculate.

3. How many days a week does a officer have off for r & r ?

A: 3.5 plus weekends.

4. What roughly, would be a typical day for an officer ?

A: Breakfast, NAAFI break, long lunch, tea, telephone Pl Sgt, snooze, Dinner.

5. Would officers eat in the officers mess ? (stupid question I know ,which I think I know the answer to already lol)


A: Yes

The next few questions are regarding the officers mess kitchen ,I have a little knowledge of this as I lived with some one who was a civilian attached in the OM kitchen catering for the officers at the Hounslow barracks in Middlesex.

1.Do they still have TV dinners and would a officer be in charge of the OM kitchen ?

A: No, the TV is bought to the Dining Table. iPods are encouraged.

2.Is the officers mess only used by the officers or can the sergeants use it too ?

A: Yes, who else is going to organise the civvy cleaning wallahs.

It depends. Whether you use your sink as a toilet (or a loo, if you're that sort of officer.)

2 Do officers do there own laundry or cleaning ?
Haven't you ever smelled us? The average officer only washes because we're too stupid to come in out of the rain.

3. How many days a week does a officer have off for r & r ?
This question is offensive. It implies that officers work?

4. What roughly, would be a typical day for an officer ?
Get up. Be pointlessly enthusiastic about the CO's latest fad (or Adj's if you're junior.) Make a few bad decisions. Ask the sergeant (CSM if you're senior) to complete the paperwork. Fail to spot he's actually corrected your stupidity. Tea and stickies at 4 and then into the bar to reminisce about how much better things were in the Boer War.

5. Would officers eat in the officers mess ? (stupid question I know ,which I think I know the answer to already lol)
This has become rarer since you stopped actually needing your CO's permission to marry. Anyway, pointless - the mess is for drinking in. The only civilised meals to have there are mess dinners (aka drinking) and breakfast (emergency recovery from drinking.)

1.Do they still have TV dinners and would a officer be in charge of the OM kitchen ?
Isn't an om some sort of Buddhist chant?

2.Is the officers mess only used by the officers or can the sergeants use it too ?
Oh, dear. I can't do it any more. I can't possibly take the piss out of this question more than the question did to itself. It is an emo question - a self-harmer.
