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. Read the book 'Phoenix Squadron' written by Rowland White( he also wrote Vulcan 607, about the Falklands Vulcan sortie)
    Much about general onboard stuff & loads of background as a build up to the event.A good read.One piece that bought it all back was the poor chap who got killed in a bomb lift.He had somehow managed to get in the lift shaft for maintenance -- having taken the wrong interlock key.The lift started -- knocked him down to the bottom & he was dead when the medics got to him.
    Also the Phantom that got landing on totally wrong & came down hard , on the rounddown, burst both tyres & wrecked the airframe -- also put two huge dents in the deck where the wheels hit.
