Sgt Mess, of which you are a member and pay your monthly Mess bill to.
For 1 night, with breakfast?

Well DH has been charged £24 for 1 night and a breakfast shock

Saltaire. Assume he was in a PAYD mess. Did he have an evening meal the night before? £24 is very steep if not, but I suppose still cheaper than a hotel. The last time I was on course I was paying about £20 a day - but that was 3 meals. Could they have made a mistake and charged him the daily rate? Is it not itemised on the Mess Bill?

It is a PAYD mess, but he ony had the room and breakfast - which he paid for at the time.
I was a bit stunned, this is the mess which doubled the monthly Mess bill to £30, I thought they paid their mess bills monthly so they could benefit from reductions in rooms etc

Dh said he pays 50p at Uxbridge Sgts Mess and £1 for breakfast...and that is not his mess iyswim. How very odd.......hmm

Was he staying for 'pleasure'? Ours is £20 a night for a room, plus extra for meals.

I understand there is a huge difference in price between duty and pleasure. Still seems a bit steep!

Ah, DH has only ever stayed for Duty. This might explain the difference.
