Before entering messrooms for any meals, all ranks will disinfect hands in cresol solution, in special basins provided.
All messing utensils must be washed in clean soapy water and then boiled in special apparatus provided. To prevent rusting of tin plates, a level teaspoon of washing soda should be put into the tub at each boiling. All dishes and cutlery must be stored in messrooms in fly-proof containers. Unused portions of sugar, butter, jam, etc., must be stored in fly-proof receptacles promptly after meals.
