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:

  2. See my post Home comforts for troops. Torbay RMA collected 5 trolley loads of essentials for our comrades (sounds commy) in Afghanistan. :D There are only 3 old soldiers able to make collections,] and we only targeted Sainsbury's Hopefully we will get a donation from them next year, couldn't get anything this year as we were late in applying. Also we have 2 more supermarkets in Newton Abbot and more in Torquay. So hopefully we will send more next year :?: We will be parceling them up on Monday and sending them off. I did get an earbending from one 'conchy' why should they donate when the Govt. gives nothing, is there no NAAFI there :?: :!: I am not sure if any other branches are doing the same :!:
    :lol: :lol: :lol:
     
  3. Torbay Royal Marine Association sent out in excess of 120 parcels to 42 Cdo. :D
    I understand that Tavistock branch sent out over a hundred. :p How many other branches have collected :?:
