Having been to several units that had up and running screws messes I can't get my head around the apathy and, in some cases, hostility towards the formation of a Cpls mess in signals units, from some people. One is slowly getting off the ground in Blandford at the moment, I believe, but what are your thoughts on them? The two camps of thought seem to be as follows... 1. Good preparation for the real (ie Sgts & WOs) mess, good chance to chat about things going on in the Corps'/Regiment/Sqn. 2. Why do I want to drink with those t1ts. I don't want to pay for it. I want to drink with my Siggy mates. Anyone else have any thoughts or opinions on Screws messes? Are there any Signal units out there who have up and running messes? Regards CF PS I hate to sterotype but it always seems to be the younger screws (esp techs) who are of opinion 2, and the older screws (esp lineys, EDs and Storeman) who are of opinion 1. Any comments?
