CHEERIO

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. No, not a hissy fit.

    Maybe been done before, but I was at a funeral on Tuesday and it was a bit 'humanist'. The whole thing was 'jazz' (music, not mag) orientated, which I had to put up with. 'Fly me to the Moon' by that arse Sinatra when my dad was 'curtained up' gripped a tad I must say.

    Anyway - my point:

    What are your three funeral songs?

    Mine:

    Carrying me in - 'One Love' Bob Marley

    Off to the fire - 'Reasons to be Cheerful (Part III)' Ian Dury

    When everyone leaves to go down the pub - 'The Impossible Dream' Carter the Unstoppable Sex Machine

    I'm going to be well pissed off at missing that line up.
     
  2. Heart of Oak

    Men of Harlech

    Annie's Song - John Denver
     
  3. Blimey tommo - you're taking your demise seriously!

    Men of Harlech splendid choice.

    If I were from the Principality I'd go for that.

    Grandmother's maiden name Evans maybe I could justify it.
     
  4. Shep Wooley's Octopus tale

    Village People's: In the Navy

    Video from Sailor of matelots sending up the Magic Roundabout.

    And I'd like my ashes to be tossed into the Norwegian oggin by a bearded, bronzed Stoker :biggrin:

    We had Rod Stewart's 'Sailing' at my Dad's last year, caused a lot of the female family to shed tears, can't deny my eyes were a bit moist too.

  7. I dunno if I am or not taking my demise seriously lol

    I've lost a couple of friends recently through various reasons and it does make you think.

    I guess the 3 songs sort of represent me and my life I guess

    Heart of Oak - Navy

    Men of Harlech - Welsh

    Annie's Song - well one to make people shed a tear cos I'm funny b*stard lol

    Plus it's a nice song

    You never know when your time is up. So 6 P's in this case wouldn't want someone playing the wrong songs lol
