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. RIP Hero, for that is what you are.
    Without those like yourself I wouldn't be here and for that I thank you every day.

  2. Gone, but not lost to history.R.I.P.
  3. R.I.P. on eternal patrol Sir.

  4. I, had the pleasure of having to host Ian at an event to celebrate the Submarine centenery. He was a true and very humble Gent. He spun some great dits and some of his stories about Mick Magennis, who won the VC alongside him were truly hilarious. We cannot ever forget people like this.
  5. I have received the following email:

  6. I missed this the first time around

    R.I.P sir
  7. Although I never saw this real gentleman and hero, I have seen a couple of documentaries about him. I did however meet Basil Godfrey Plaice VC who was my skipper at Ganges in the early 60s. Who later became the skipper of HMS Albion on the Far East Station. Another true gentleman and sadly missed by all who wore the white woolly pully. R.I.P to them both.
