Also known as the Officer's Mess, the Wardroom is located at 1586 Esquimalt Road. This building was opened in April 2000 and overlooks beautiful Esquimalt Harbour.



The Mess is a non-public entity and is designed for the social and professional use of the officers and guests of Maritime Forces Pacific.  Membership privileges are also offered to civilian members of the Defence Team with officer status, retired military officers, and a select group of distinguished civilians in our community.

The Accommodation facility is operated as a public entity, designed to provide quarters for single or unaccompanied officers choosing to "live-in" and for officers on Temporary Duty.

BOA Mess Dinner

Dress:  Formal

Fellow Wardroom Members-

From 1939 through 1945 the Royal Canadian Navy went to war. Its main effort during that struggle was the epic Battle of the Atlantic, upon which the very outcome of the war depended. The men and women of the RCN, RCNR, and RCNVR met the challenge, and in doing so created a legacy which has survived the decades and thrives in the ships and establishments, sailors and officers of today's Royal Canadian Navy.

On Thursday 01 May at 1830 for 1900 the NADEN Wardroom will celebrate this most amazing chapter of our history, the Battle of the Atlantic, with a splendiferous mess dinner!

Ticket prices for this dinner have been depth charged to a mere $45 for SLts and above, and an incredibly low $30 for NCdts and A/SLts. Get yours by contacting the Wardroom Events Coordinator, Megan "Loose Lips Sink Ships" Ilott, at megan.ilott@forces.gc.ca or 250-363-2689. Please do so by 1500 on 25 April.

Dress for the dinner is N2A (summer mess dress) or N2 (mess dress). Dress for newly commissioned officers or NCdts who have yet to purchase mess dress is N2B (mess service dress).

So do shape a course to the Wardroom at 1830 for 1900 on Thursday 01 May to add your voice to the stentorian throng singing the praises of our RCN, past and present! Excellent food, excellent company, excellent social interaction to mark an excellent occasion! If you're only going to attend one Battle of the Atlantic mess dinner this year, make it this one!

Little-known fact: Did you know that during the Second World War the German Navy actually had four Flower-class Corvettes as well? When German forces overran France they captured four corvettes nearing completion in a French shipyard. They were to be the ARQUEBUSE, HALLEBARDE, SABRE, and POIGNARD, but instead became PA1, PA2, PA3, and PA4, with "PA" standing for Patroullienboot Ausland. There it is.
