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. In case you didn't already know here's a lil' update.

    The first planeload of Royal Marines from 40 Commando touched down at Exeter Airport this afternoon, Tuesday 8 April 2008, following a successful six-month tour of duty in southern Afghanistan.

    Based in Helmand province, the Bravo Company Marines deployed in October 2007 in support of 52 Infantry Brigade as part of a UK Army-led multi national force. They have been an integral part of providing security for reconstruction and have led several highly successful operations to clear pockets of Taliban resistance.

  6. Hoofin' effort from 40, well done to all involved. Taunton can stand by.
  7. Welcome home, Gents - am particularly pleased by this news as two members of Bravo Coy, incl the OC, are former pupils of mine: will, I hope, be getting a few beers in for them soon.
  8. Welcome home :biggrin:
  9. I did think it was a very British homecoming, I saw the Bandies doing their bit and some rather nice banners but none of the usual Americanisation - Union Flags and yellow ribbons. The commentator on the BBC news did remark that all the lads wanted was something low key like this, rather than a grand parade. Perhaps though that will change in time.
