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. Also from the BBC's new BBC Four Army Collection is a series from 1985 called 'Behind The Lines' about the Mountain and Arctic Warfare Cadre.

    The BBC says:

    "The Royal Marines are part of the Navy. This series graphically portrays the diverse field of operations that Britain's armed forces can find themselves in and the breadth of training required to meet those needs. In this case it's arctic warfare and high altitude training for specialist teams - it's tough, it's arduous, and it's cold!"

    You can see clips from the series here:

    About time too, I remember watching this years ago it is undoubtedly one of the best troops-in-training documentaries I have seen.

    The nutter with the cat hat and the brawl when they get off the helicopter at the end are exceptionally funny.
  3. The Nutter with the cat hat ended up an RSM
  4. The ultimate soldier.
