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. Been drafted to Coulport to do some sort of seamanship job after my killicks course at the end of the year. I was just wondering if anyone had been there recently and what it was like or even better if you know the job in question.

    I did email my old buffer from a while back about it as he was doing the job before he went outside but in his ever useful style (describing him as a tool is offensive to tools). all he replied with was "its the best job ive done in the mob" which was so helpful!

    Cheers for any help though lads and lasses
  2. 1. Tool or not he has a great sense of humour :lol:

    2. Whatever did you did to upset Drafty so badly :?:

    3. Start wriggling - NOW. :wink:
  3. Don't know much about the job, but I can tell you that its in the arse end of nowhere. Not much around the area apart from RNAD and its about a 25 minute drive over to Helensburgh.

    Good luck and take plenty of porn, books and other stuff to keep you busy at night. :wink:
  4. Coulport is not a draft for the faint hearted!

    You'll be billeted in Faslane unless your RA. I imagine being a dabber you'll be working in the EHJ, maybe shift work. Why don't you give them a phone?

    The only folk I've ever heard dripping about the place are the choppers on here. :wink:
  7. cheers for all your help lads even though there seems to be some mixed feeling going on!
    im RA anyway so the place could be a dump i dont really care as long as im not in pompey!
    on the phoning front i have the slight problem that im stuck on a rock in the south atlantic at the minute 5 hours time difference behind with a global address list like hunting a needle in a haystack! and yes i probably have pissed someone of a hell of a lot then to get the falklands and then coulport!
    cheers again though
  8. Is that 2 Clyde postings in close formation then?

    Coulport is still an RNAD and none of this DSDA/DM bollox: so you will be appreciated if you make the right noises and contacts. The lads are nearly all civvy and have pride in their Navy so you should be well looked after.

    Play it right and it will be bostin. [​IMG]
  9. no P-O-L im up at MPA with the crabs and the pongos. Coulport is my prize for my currently over 6 month sentance im serving down here (fooking WMO) for the second time in 2 years. Your reply sounds better than some of the doom and gloom being posted though! :)
