Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. 1sl.jpg

    From the RN FB page.

    A very sweet photo. Apparently the little boy's t-shirt has the word "Captain" printed on it.

  2. Actually, 1SL is asking the lad where he got his rig from so that he can propose it as the "Sailor 2020" AWD. The modern look for the modern Navy.

    Writing the Rank in plain English on the "T Shirt" does away with all that tirersome ring/anchor/crown counting for the observationally challenged.

    Excellent photo.

    Caption comp?

    (Forget the references to the scruffy bugger with his hand in his pocket, already done to death on FB)

  6. If this were Lil's "Would you like a Werthers?" could be a starter.

    I don't do FB but I had already clocked that the WREN O was giving scruffkins a good Wow-Wow-ing of the "...and other thing blah blah.." kind.
  7. If I apply now I will be starting raleigh by the time I am 16.

  9. You seem a little shy - would you like to come and see my puppies?

    That`s more likely the conversation occurring between the less senior officers in the shot.

    Blimey Captain Birdseye - you've aged a bit.

  20. On zooming in and enhancing I was more drawn to the state of his shoes, the man is an utter disgrace, sign of the times I suspect.
