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 have just finished reading a book "In the Service of the Sultan", describing the Dhofur insurgency in the 1970s. It described the author having a Cook's Tour/ Can any 1 explain plz
     
  2. The phrase came into common parlance when the 19c travel company founder, Thomas Cook, began taking travellers on Grand Tours of Europe i.e. they were taking a Cook's Tour. They would see all the "important" sites in the city they were visiting at the time and then move on to the next.

    In modern terms, if someone does a "Cook's Tour", they whizz around all the well-known sites at their destination, without exploring any particular site in depth.

    I do hope that this is the answer you are looking for!
