Allegory of love

My homage to Inklingianists!

Could anybody explain, what means “Head Quarters Mess of the ——” (I’m especially interested in this ——) in “Allegory of Love” — p. 328 in my edition with fountain of the Rose on the cover (it’s in the middle of 7-th part, about Faerie Queen).

The whole passage is: Philotime’s beauty is not ‘her owne native hew, but wrought by art’, and the description of her court ...  is so vivid that an officer of my acquaintance thought of presenting a framed and illustrated text of that stanza to the Head Quarters Mess of the ——.
