    A forces thing? I was in the forces and I don't ever recall my basic training including the subject of meal titles.

    In the run up to bedtime: Supper (but I don't snack late often)
    So if you have 2 main meals you call them both dinner? So you have 2 dinners? Greedy girl

    lunch and dinner (sometimes call it tea) here

    Its definately a north/south divide on the dinner issue - as can be witnessed on this thread and looking at posters locations. Down here, if anyone mentions dinner it is always assumed to be the evening meal. If someone referred to lunch as dinner it would sound pretty unusual

    I'm from Sunderland and it's breakfast, dinner (mid-day meal) and then tea (evening meal) anything else between these is a snack. Everyone else is wrong. Lol.

    And for reference, it is MAM!! Yet again anything else is wrong.

    Surely you have the cocktails BEFORE your evening meal and port after - so non-u
