    WTF? Most of our NCOs call it camp, and many of them refer to the tarmac outside the door as the "main deck" for parade purposes.

    So what is it supposed to be called?

    It has been a policy in NS since the early days to have all ships "dry" when at sea. Carrying this rule to shore for recruits is easy to follow.Its a culture that already is accepted by most members,especially those who run the Bar.
    Not so in the DPM wearers though.Up to recently in the RDF it was impossible to enforce such a rule,as the bar staff would be uncooperative at best.These days the best you can do is envorce a strict policy of No ID,No Alcohol.

    However i know of one camp which imposed strict Hours for the mess,with the result that local Off Licences made a killing.

    NSR recruit courses are "Dry", there is no drinking while you are a recruit so hangover cures are NOT required
    How does it affect the camp? Wish the FCA had the balls to do the same.....
