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. Centre one athwartships:-

  2. Acacia Avenue or Gobblers Gulch?


    ......those waterproof bunk curtains seem like only yesterday :oops:

    TURN THOSE FRINGING LIGHTS OFF!!!
     
  3. Im getting a hard on, it looks like my old home :oops:

    Mine was always the top one, its safer that way.
     
  4. Carnt be the Crypt the lights are on :D
     
  5. Its not a proper bunk space the lights are on. And whats that shiny stuff?
     
  6. Are you lonely Billy, each time I have logged on you have been stuck in the chatroom...........all alone.
     
  7. Things done to pass the time in the Bunkspace.

    (1). When bloke has head down, locate his steaming wazzers and
    stick an egg in each one (uncooked - complete with shell). Almost
    always worked when they got up to go on watch.
    (2). Tie curtains to the ones in the next bunk and delight in the exploits
    as one bloke shuts his curtains - and the other blokes curtains mysteriously
    open...only to be shut....and then the OTHER curtains open. Repeat until
    a fight ensues.
    (3). Wake your relief - not with a Pussers right-angle red torch, but
    with a 5" Aldis complete with battery. Fried eyeballs at 01:00 are a
    marvellous way to start the day.
    (4). Hide 1 x "Stornophone" (Squelch button full on) somewhere in
    opposite watches bunk. Then you can select a channel and give him
    repeated calls throughout the period of his time off watch. This trick
    normally culminated in physical violence.
    (5). When he gets his nut down - locate his clothing (if he took any off)
    and remove it to the freezers (L/Chef always happy to oblige). Spray
    with water and lay it out on the deck. Let it set solid and return clothing
    about ten minutes before he gets his shake. Listen to the rantings as he
    tries to get a sub-zero No. 8 shirt on.
    (6). Wrap pillow in masking tape (Sticky side outwards). Works on most
    ratings, but back-afties tend not to notice when their head touches the
    pillow as they simply slide off.

    Oh the fun we had.
     
  8. We had an RS who not only had magnificent coffin dreams, but also had salad cream (I think) on absolutely everything he ate.

    Funny how it ran out mid patrol................. :D
     
  9. My personal favourite was to empty the contents of a drum of Parmesan Cheese on to a large plate of scramblers first thing in the morning. Used to chuck up something rotten, but the taste appealed to me, unlike the rest of the off-going watch, who were a bit put off by the aroma. A "Fat Bastards Breakfast" par exellence, ate at 100 m.p.h. in order to maximise rack time.
     
  10. Billy NM you have a serious problem.
    You must have been loads of laughs to live on a submarine with.
    All I can say that you didn't have very much to do whilst you was at sea.
    Christ all I wanted to do when I was six off was get my head down!!
    Six hours on the after planes tapper gear was enough fer me!

  12. Had to do some mad things or we would have gone bat-shit. Agree that it was extremely knackering - but a bit of fun, a laugh and the odd insane act of hilarity was excellent for the morale of the crew.

    Sorry that should have read Oberons_Knob do a search on RR he wrote up a couple of dits a while ago
     
  16. Yea gods £33 for a book about submariners antics.
    Our fun was conducted on watch in a darkened O boats control room.
    Like switch WEO's torch on whilst he was on the roundabout eyes glued to the after peep stick optics. WEO is now duty lighthouse.
    Panel watchkeeper wiping bodily fluids on people transiting the control room.
    Snurgle 'next on scran' as it transisted the control room.
    Trip up the Steward on his way forwarder with a tray of duff.
    Change the lids to the coloured marker pens on the CEP.
    This way you get your amusement whilst on watch leaving sleeping time to sleep.
     
  17. Swap the 2B pencils on the chart table for 5H :twisted:
     
  18. Competition between watches to see which watch could lift the
    most Yellow pussers right-angle torches. (Bunhouse issue only
    apparently) - all us other morons could only operate the green
    ones.

    Record stood at about 30, all mysteriously filched from various
    occifers who manked a bit before lowering their standards to
    owning a green torch.

    Eventually - all the yellow ones were put in a gash bag (all switched
    on), and dumped on the Casing Officers rack.

    Folk started to "Brand" their yellow torches with soldering irons.
    *W.E.O.* *D.W.E.O.* etc thereby ensuring that they were never
    thieved again.






    Like that worked.
