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. Listed below are the names of those men and boys of Bridlington in the Royal and Merchant Navy who gave their lives in WW1 and are commemorated in Bridlington's Sewerby Road Cemetery. A collection of all these peoples service history,photos and any other details has been collated by Shipmate Andy Pare (LMEM(M) and Falklands Veteran) and will be available for the people of Bridlington to see this Saturday at the Priory. This date is 100 years and one day since Bridlington's first Royal Navy service men gave their lives in the service of their country. Fair winds and following sea shipmates,we will remember them.
