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. New 8 part documentary just started on channel 4 at 2100hrs.. Interesting so far, someone's already bottled it!
     
  2. I think the sleeping naked thing should have been expanded on.

    For those that missed the first episode, its on again tonight Ch 4 2305
     
  14. I felt sorry for the guy that had been 'pressurised' into joining up by his family. I also felt REALLY sorry for Colin Bell - surely they could have let him continue, excema or no excema, as he'd never have been deployed. He'd have been too busy getting the CO's and other senior officers handicaps down!

    I thought it was an excellent programme which was a masterclass in understatement & military wit.

    It's appreciated purists will want to see more phys, skinnier DL's and there will be those who want to see more nakedness. From a recruiting perspective, it was a quality production - the telephones have literally not stopped jangling all bloody day!

    For me, the highlight was watching the acid wit of the Corporal munching on an apple whilst disinterestedly shooting recruit after recruit down in flames whilst they struggled to report. Top viewing.
