Camp Borden had at that time had 15 Kitchens and dining rooms in the Base Camp. 3 in each school RCASC, RCS of I, Canadian Armoured Corps, Camp HQ. these included a men’s mess, a Sgt’s mess as well as an Officers mess in each school. On the RCAF side of Borden 3 more messes one of each.  Fast Forward 55 years and Camp Borden now boasts   Single messhall and Kitchen for all ranks. I am looking forward to visiting this new messing establishment in August. Especially for the fact it was built on sacred ground. The RCASC School Parade Square, where I spent many an hour marching , arms swinging and completing  drill moves. The new mess hall has received an architectural award, it looks  like a bright  airy mess hall. http://www.designboom.com/architecture/zas-architects-curtiss-military-dining-facility-ontario-canada-04-30-2016/ Have thought or two for …
