Another Newbie

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. Hi All,

    Newbie here. Been looking at this site for some time as a
    visitor, and a couple of weeks ago I came across the
    contributed list of Naval sayings and pipes. Pee'd myself
    laughing, and I just had to sign on.

    As for me, joined Ganges in '54 and left the mob in '66 as a
    killick Sparker. I am now retired. Married & divorced twice,
    with two daughters and three Grand children.

    I'm currently stringing a Web site together about my time
    in the Andrew for the grand children, and I wondered if anyone
    would object to me pasting a selection of the Rum Ration list
    of Naval maxims and pipes into the appendix - I would hate to
    see them watered down and diluted by the Political Correctness

  2. Hi there Jerry...i'm sure you'll get lots of welcomes to the site...enjoy!
    All seems to be mad on here eh?
    Good luck with your web site... :roll:
  3. Help yourself mate.

    I don`t think theres any copyright on the net if the poster isn`t using his real name, and even then it`s a grey area.

    It`s always good manners to include the source at the end…. I do stories and poems and stuff and I have seen it a couple of times where plebs have passed it off as their own…..I always take it as a compliment.

    Welcome to the forum and good luck with the website

  4. Don't forget the royalties :grin: :grin: :grin: :cool:
  5. Welcome Jerry, Enjoy the madness of RR.
  6. Hi Jerry,

    do pop into Lil's sometime if you are at a loose end a few of the old cogers are a bit smelly and most of the blokes need their knuckles rapping from time to time but overall it's a good laugh.

    Bottoms up!

  7. Welcome aboard sparks, not been on here long myself but superb for keeping one sane. Good luck with the website :grin:
  8. Welcome Jerry , enjoy the site & do join in , good luck with your website ,

  10. Old,smelly???? Oh yes,i remember now, Rosy! :grin: :grin: :grin:
  11. Good job sanity is not a requirmement here :!: :idea: :cool:
  12. Hi All,

    Many thanks for your kind messages, best wishes and warm
    welcome. Much appreciated.

    I have now incorporated the RR Maxims and Pipes into the web
    site appendix, with the Credits going to the members and crew
    of Rum Ration and, hopefully, I should have it on line by the
    end of month.

    Finally, if I could have a little time to myself to unpack my
    kitbag, stow my gear and organise my medals, I should then be
    ready to enter the fray - first port of call Diamond Lill's.

    Once again, my sincere thanks to all for your kind and welcoming

  13. Hi Jerry....I joined Ganges in '54 392 class Rodney Div and left in '63 as a killick sparker. What class was you in?
  14. Welcome & enjoy jerry
