Having lived in the Aldershot Garrison (& 5AB) mess, I was confused to see a large painting depicting a modern day (late 90s) airborne dz complete with meat bombs, dead bodies and live firing/charging. When I asked one of the maroon fraternity which battle was being depicted (as I couldn't recall an operational descent by non-SF since Suez) he remarked that it was supposed to embody the AB spirit.I've only been to one of their Officer's Messes, and I have forgot which one. Memory's a bit dodgy now.
In my hazy recollection, the walls had a few of those absurd Cuneo daubs (where there's a mouse winning the battle, and nobody's taking cover - I mean, just FerFvckSake!! ) and the lunchtime centrepiece was a 750ml Heinz Tomato Ketchup squeezy bottle.
That said, the only bits of which I'm uncertain of, are the ketchup brand name, and the size of the bottle
