Im about to pick up my rate after 14 glorious years serving scran through the counter. Along with treating myself of being a dual hatted caterer, ive also been penned in for a mess dinner three days after picking my rate up. Ive read up on ease springs, and about the port not leaving the table, pouring for a lady sat next to you, the routine and other odds and sods. Ive just got a few questions so i dont look a cock, are there any other random rules i must adhere to? I remember something about epaulettes under the nos 1s (i havent got mess undress yet) and obviously im not going to be the clown who has ten pints before sitting down. What kind of things would show me up? I just want to make a good first impression. Any help would be appreciated as our mess pres isnt a fan of mine and as a coxn im sure he would take great pleasure in giving me shit.
