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:

  4. Why bother with such light calibres.

    Forget the latest .50 cals................they're for pussies.

    Forget the Mechem NTW-20....... that's only a 20mm sniper rifle.
