UK Forces – an Officer’s Mess

Posted: November 27, 2008 in British Forces, Images, Military

No, I actually do not have any fond memories of these particular barracks. Believe me, if you had been drooled on, literally, by some pathetic guy who thinks just because he’s somehow managed to climb certain ranks he had any right to be considered by myself to be above the level of an amoeba, you wouldn’t have fond memories either.

Still, if I hadn’t been to such places I wouldn’t be able to properly describe them, aye?

Well, the pictures below might be of bad quality and small (from a camera phone, back in the day), but it should give you an idea of an Officers Mess, not the SNCO one. Sergeants and Warrant Officers is a lot less glitzy, but the silver is just as staggeringly tasteless. So, if you want to know what the dining room of a probably fairly typical Officers Mess mess in the UK Forces looks like, here you have it.

    Thank you, it was getting worse before it is slowly looking as if it got better. I just wish the coughing stopped. 🙂
