Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

  1. Know I'm a week behind the times but the recent TV and news programmes about Churchill's funeral have stirred some memories. I was in the RN squad which marched ahead of the gun carriage in the funeral procession, with reversed arms. We were kitted out in greatcoats (unlike the poor buggers in their blues pulling the gun carriage) and owing to the two different bands fore and aft of us, had a hell of a job keeping in step. Wondered if there was anyone else out there who took part. I was on the submarine depot ship Adamant at the time, based in Guz (where I still live)
