One of the many good aspects of belonging to Essex's is our determination to party.
At events, every night seems to end with fine wines and food around the camp fire. This is often accompanied by renditions of both authentic and unauthentic songs. Mostly bawdy!
There are banquets to go to during the year, if not our own, invites from other Regiments are often extended.
Then, of course, there are the normal invites to social gatherings celebrating birthdays, weddings, and the New Year.
If that isn't enough we have parties just because we want to!
