A custom peculiar to the military, and in the spirit of good cheer, is the Christmas dinner tradition of role reversal. The youngest member of the Mess switches tunics and places with the Commanding Officer for the day. This soldier then becomes the honorary commander for the dinner. The officers serve dinner to the non-commissioned members and they in turn serve dinner to the stewards. Maybe an idea for home for Christmas lunch as you enjoy these selections in our Christmas Collection gift pack.
