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. Can anyone one remember the poem about Admirals flags. If I remember correctly it ended with " the poor old Admiral had no balls at all"
  2. Closest I could find but not a poem.

    "The way to tell the difference between the masthead pennants of an Admiral, Vice-Admiral and Rear-Admiral was that they led such dissolute lives that Rear-Admirals had two balls, Vice-Admirals only one and by the time the reached the dizzy heights of Admiral they had no balls at all."
