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. Visiting the Memorial brought home to me that day in Hong Kong 9 September 1953 when I was lying injured in RNH, situated in a magnificent position high on The Peak , when the crew of ML P1323 dead and alive were brought in.
    An act of infamy ,when a communist Chinese LST fired on ML 1323, going about its lawful duties patrolling HK's Territorial waters ,killed the Officer in charge , the cox,n, 4 further members of the crew and a passenger a Capt in HKDF.
    I know of Lt X Merriman
    PO R Keyte The Coxswain
    but am not aware of the name of the Leading Seaman who brought the badly damaged vessel to safety.
    Does any of the RR's Old and Bold know this chaps name?
  2. Is barrackstantion actually Norman ??? ..... his posts are culled before anyone can respond.
  3. Yes, and I cull his posts because he justs winds people up and is an utter pain that just won't go away.

    Hmm, I'm beginning to wonder what this thread was about - too many Lt Cdrs named on Armed Forces memorials perhaps?! 8O :wink:
