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. From the Not so torygraph

    "The Army will lose a Brigade and 10,000 soldiers will return from Germany in five years. The Royal Marines will also be cut and partly integrated with the Parachute Regiment. "
     
  2. And where did that speculation come from, sells papers and warms up outrage buses I suppose :roll:
     
  3. Marines aren't going to the Army. Good to see papers spouting crap as usual
     
  4. A load crap

    Interestingly, the Daily Wail states that poor Royal will make-up part of a "crack brigade" (ooer missus), not only that they will be forced into it:

    On the subject of Defence cuts as reported in the Wail, I rather liked the cut of this natty leather jacket worn by the Downcast station commander. Anyone got the NATO stores number?

    Correct me if i'm wrong, but isn't that roughly what the SFSG do?
     
  11. Think your spot on there Blackrat 8)
     
  12. Booties will be cut by 600. No redundancies, just natural wastage.
     
  13. I read this earlier and thought the same. I couldn't be arsed to offer a response!!! :roll:
     
  14. If that were the case it would be the other way round, Paras join the Royal Marines.

    I hear they have combined certain aspects of training by my mucker in the SFSG. They now do naked milling.
     
  16. A step forward then.
     
  17. Could para pay get involved then ?
     
  18. No mention of the STC branch? are they getting cut at all?
