Crowborough 2014

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. Evening all,

    Are any other units/people unable to attend this years event due to the UK seemingly running out of MTP, high leg combats and day sacks? I've heard so many good dits about Crowborough, and am gutted that it's highly unlikely myself, and most of my unit, will be able to attend!
     
  2. I recall that last year there were people wearing fours because their unit was unable (or unwilling) to lend them MTP or boots (although my own stores tell me that they no longer lend, just issue; a decade ago I'm sure there was a slightly off-the-books box of kit for lending out, but no more).

    Every year now the calling notice says "No fours, no CS95, Just MTP!" but if you come without MTP, do take some kind of waterproofs. Last year people turned up without any because it wasn't issued, and if the weather had closed in we could have had some problems. A bright pink waterproof poncho is better than hypothermia; safety first :)
