Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

    Generally speaking URNU Summer Balls tend to be black tie.
    As has already been said you can check with your host, you will probably have 3 options, all of which are acceptable if male:
    1) Mess Undress(Black-tie, bum-freezer Mess Undress, miniature medals)
    2) Destroyer Rig (Best uniform with bow-tie & full-size medals)
    3) Civilian black-tie.

    If a girly, additional options:
    1. Ball Gown (But most definitely check that others will be dressed similarly or you will most definitely stand out!)
    2. Below-knee cocktail dress, usually shoulders covered by a shawl. (RM's usually opt for this one too!)
