Hello to all of you, I'm a long-time lurker here but the time has come for me to post. I need some advice on how to behave at a social event happening in the next couple of weeks. This is the situation: My wife is, by dint of her Civil Servant Grade and post, a member of the Officers' Mess at my Corps HQ. As the "husband of" I've been invited too despite the fact that I'm a lowly lance jack. I've already been 'strongly advised' that I will be attending as a civvy (Mr TG rather than LCpl TG) but I thought I'd open it up to the collective wisdom of ARRSE for some advice on dos and don'ts. Any thoughts?
