Mess Dinner; Dress Clarification

Since this is the 1st Cadet Mess dinner for many,  there’s been some questions about the dress for cadets and the adult non-military (Civilian Volunteers & SSC members) that have signed up to attend.  Here’s some points of clarification:


In order of appropriateness per CATO:

  • C8 (preferred):  pants, tunic, long sleeve white shirt, bow tie, ribbons.
  • C1a:  Full dress with medals

(New) Cadets/Recruits:

  • Black pants, white shirt, black tie or bow tie.


For the CV’s and SSC members that have signed up to attend, the dress is semi-formal.

Please remember to also bring your non-perishable food item or new toy as part of our service commitment to the Community.
