Beating Retreat 2009 not to be shown on TV

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. I was shocked to read on the Royal Marine Band Service website ( that the BBC would not be showing the Royal Marine Bands Beating Retreat 2009 on Horse guards parade June 9-11th. Maybe never again, who knows? There is no explanation for this decision that i can find, not even a move to BBC4; they just binned it.
    This is just a little post to raise awareness of this as I can't be the only one who is both shocked and dissappointed about this inexplicable decision. I have complained to the BBc and would encourage concerned others to do so.

    Thankyou for your time and attention.
  2. The nation will have to 'beat it's meat' instead. :)
  3. They can be seen live (and for free) on HMS Excellent's lawn at the weekend. :D
