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. Here's my one from the Criterion bogs in 1958[I was glad it was eye level as I would not have wished to bend down in that pub to read it!]

    " Here lies the body of Nellie Knox
    She gave a thousand Sailors the Pox
    Poor Nellie's gone but not forgotten
    Her heart was pure but her snatch was rotten!"

    Actually the word snatch was not there it was another four letter word we all know.
    I think some Matelot lost his calling there,worthy of Poet Laureate status I think.
