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. Being a cattie person, I have always loved that story, I wonder if Golden Rivet can help but I believe I have seen a phot of Simon tucked up in a little cattie hammock!
     
  2. A wonderful true story of the kind that makes one feel a deep glow about once being part of the Royal Navy . With AB Simon it is one of the features that made the RN such a unique service and to hear he will be remembered this way is terrific . I recently attended a re-union / memorial service in Sydney where I recalled the S/M 4 squadron mascot , Nigger , a black and white dog who attached himself to the squadron until his death . Although he has no memorial there I would like to see one . Meanwhile RIP AB Simon .
     
  3. Mind you - things are not always what they seem:

    Rob the SAS Collie

    obviously much loved by his comrades :salut:
