mess hall - Place where hot meals were served, usually a canvas tent in the forward trains areas, where you got your food and then went back to your own tent or bunker to eat, thus avoiding a large concentration of troops, that might attract enemy artillery fire. Further away from the fighting, such as, Division Base Camp, it might be a building, where you could actually sit down out of the weather to eat.
