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. Col Willie McCracken MC RA. Recently CTB. Why the Navy Net? Because he won his MC using Naval Gunfire in the Falklands contretemps and will be known to quite a few ex-RN.

    For more info ..........

  2. Good find,
    I knew a few advanced artillery spotters (RN, RM) who landed on the Falkland’s before
    the main assault arrived, they were in small teams and played a key role aiming
    the 10mile marksmen, hell of a job to do and left mainly to their own devises
    for survival, and await eventual back up when the main troops arrived.
