Dear Editor Gan Island Post 19th May
May I point out that the 'Sergeants Mess Correspondent'
is barking up the wrong tree, there is no
DOE Mess, the civilian mess are 'Civil Service Messes',
Civilian and distinct from the RAF.
The correspondent implies that the Civil Servant Messes
have no right to restrict or limit visitors. May I
point out that an invitation to one of the Civil Service
Messes is a privilege, and the right is reserved to
those who are given an invitation. The whole tone
of the Civilian Messes would alter for the worse if
Tom, Dick or Harry from the Sgt's Mess were to be given
As far as I an aware, no civilian is invited to give
direction to the management of the Sgt's Mess, so let
have the right to control our affairs.
