Having just finished University and (rather luckily, considering the current climate) having fallen into a job, I thought a suitable use of my spare time might be to join the TA. I have had a quick look around, I thought I might look into the Yeomanry, my nearest Squadron being C, the FFY / SH based in Cupar. If I did go for the TA, I would probably want to try for Officer. However, having had a look on the internet I am unable to find any pictures of the C Sqn mess dress. I know most Yeomanry mess kits tend to be quite gaudy, and whilst this isn't necessarily a problem, there is the associated cost. I don't want to look like a prat for not being able to afford the correct gubbins. Would each squadron have their own kit, or is it a QOY standard mess dress I would have to get? Forgive my considerable ignorance, but are young officers expected to wear Mess Kit at formal do's? If they are (or even if they are not!), could anyone give me an idea of what I might be getting myself into, with regards to either cost or style?! Many thanks in advance, any advice would be very much appreciated.
