Engineers Messes

Circular No. 357.

Admiralty, 1Bth February, 1859.

With a view to the better regulation of the Engineers' Messes, on board Her Majesty's Ships, my Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty are pleased to direct, that the same restriction be placed, on the use of wine and spirits in the Engineers' Messes, as are placed on the Gun Room Messes of Her Majesty's Ships by their Circular, No. 282 of 12th December, 1856, and further that no spirits except the Ship's allowance be permitted to be received on board any of Her Majesty's Ships, for either the Gun Room or Engineers' Messes, unless with the written permission of the Captain.

By Command of their Lordships,

H. Corry.

To all Flag Officers, Commanders-in-Chief, Captains, and Commanding Officers of Her Majesty's Ships and Vessels.
