It is something you are failing at, especially when people are away and others are asked/not asked to cover. The CO had to wait for some coffee this morning as a second jug hadn't been put on - This is completely unacceptable. Just to clarify a few things so everyone is sure of what is expected: 1. The most junior officer is responsible for Officers' coffee. Until Feb 16 this is 2Lt [redacted]. He is to perform the duty each day that coffee is on. If he is unavailable he is to approach the next junior officer available to stand in for him. 2. Ensure that there is always enough coffee. Never run out. Taylors is a good choice for coffee and don't scrimp on biscuits. A selection of the following always goes down well: jaffa cakes, choc malted milks, choc hob nobs or digestives and as a treat party rings or pink wafers. It is important not to run out of coffee or biscuits as occasionally I have to put on a pot of coffee and a plate of biscuits when hosting officers that visit BHQ. 3. Put the other officers before yourself. Make sure you gauge how much coffee to put on and when. Make sure the milk jug and sugar bowl always have enough in. If someone brings in cake ensure there is a knife and paper towels handy. Don't wait to be prompted. 4. Clearing up. Ensure the kitchen area and Harris room are left clean and tidy. This means: coffee machine switched off and cleaned, cups all cleaned (no coffee stains inside) and hung back on rack or placed back on tray. Coffee machine table wiped, kitchen sink and draining board wiped, table in Harris room wiped. I'm annoyed that I even have to write this. Get a grip and do the duty properly. You don't have to do it for that long so do it right. When the CO sees an organised and proactive subaltern at coffee she can presume that you are organised and proactive in how you run your Pl. The captain who sent the email in question on the right.
