TA Commissioning Course

Hi all,

I am writing here to see if anyone can offer an help regarding a few brain aches I have about my upcoming condensed MTQ 2 course.

The Joining Instructions have stated I am to arrive in Smart Civvies, can I assume this is a suit, or is it Chinos and a V-Neck?

Also, I am to bring a Lounge Suit for when in the Mess, wheres the best place to pick one up for a reasonable price?

Any further advice would meet appreciative ears.


Suit - John Lewis is nice and "sensible".

Smart Civvies - no idea in an Army Mess, but you'd fit in in a Wardroom. Probably best to go with the suit, just take your jacket off if need be.
