What happens in the Mess stays in the Mess!!!

So how far does it have to go before this is no longer a true statement??


Your opinion

(and yes its cause of something that has happened to me , i think has got out of control)

I suppose when it becomes criminal or where it brings the units name into disrepute. In days gone by when technology was simple (paper and pen) it was easier to keep a lid on things but with technology and people as they are the powers that be are reacting sooner rather than being accused of cover ups.

Far too many JNCO spouses and civilian guests in the mess these days for anything to be kept quiet.

You can always present yourself to the Badge and ask for forgivness (take a few bottles of port).

Pah! It never has and still doesn't. Just the other day I was told about something that happened in the Mess at the previous place I worked! :roll:

Try twatting the RSM with a bar stool and seeing if there are any repercussions. :roll:

Saw some very disturbing behaviour in the Mess years ago. Did I go and broadcast it? Did I fukk! It's traditional not to go spouting off to those who either haven't yet attained senior rank or have decided to do a body-swerve and go into the "other" Mess.

Messes are tradition, pure and simple. Keep it that way chaps and chapesses or it'll go to rat-sh1t.

I agree with what you are saying and having been a Mess member for over 20 years (discharged in 2007), would not like to see the traditions of the Mess devalued in any way. It is, after all, the most elite of Clubs to be a member of.

If, as you say apologies done and accwepted then the RSM should be able to square this away with the CO.

Not been around the mess as long as you have Twizzle but I fear that traditions of the Mess are dissapearing all the time and with Sodexho running the show I dread to think how messes will be in another 20 years.

I noted wryly a long time ago that an RSM chasing a commission and/or a CO chasing an OBE will ride the Sgts mess like a Jockey @ Aintree for the duration of their tour.
