Mess undress post leaving the RN

Discussion in 'Social & Reunions' started by Knocker.White, Mar 3, 2013.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. As an ex Warrant Officer 1st class is it permissible to wear my mess undress to a black tie function or do I wear civilian DJ and miniature medals ?

    Would you consider "Hello Sailor" as improper?

    Past behind me. New life - live that.

  8. Perfectly acceptable;

    We dedicate our time to re-enacting memorable trafalgar night dinners as part of a "living history group", our sister group "Burns night supper" is Tri-service.:salut:

  12. Sold mine to a newly promoted senior rate. Cost me £250 new and i wore it about 3 times.

    Pass it on to someone else I say.

    And get a nice shiny RNA blazer!
  13. So what do you mean, you just go about eating dinners?
    You should move to Tamworth mate.

    Someone may say; "steward, my soup is cold".
  16. Lol. They would the find a ladle shoved up their ass.
    Frenchie, to be honest just sticking with a tuxedo. Will let the old man of the sea hold up the RN standard.
    All the same will be sporting my massive group of two medals (miniature) as the Septics get all sentimental and lash you up all night.
    Never one to miss out on free wets.

  17. Why the hell would you want to, beyond me. Your now a civi, get used to it and behave like one. That doesn't mean you have to grow up and stop being "matelot type".

  18. Worth considering......... is Tamworth the epicenter for dinner re-enactments?

    Has anyone any mess undress, mess dress etc that they would care to donate? As due to our dedication to realism, our membership are rapidly growing!......... None of my posts on this thread contain any sarcasm/untruth what so ever. :eh:
  19. Wear what you want shippers whats the worse they can do to you!!! NDA doesn't exist in civvie street
  20. Doesn't exist in the mob either. Do keep up!
