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:

    " A former army major has resigned as a parliamentary aide to Defence Secretary Bob Ainsworth, criticising the government's strategy in Afghanistan.

    Labour MP Eric Joyce said the UK could no longer justify the growing casualty toll in Afghanistan by saying the war would prevent terrorism back home. "
     
  2. More to this than it seems, i'll bet...
     
  3. Do the words "rats" and "sinking ships" spring to mind ?
     
  4. agreed ^^^^^^^

    hopefully it will spur someone "in charge" to actually act like one of the leading countries in the world and provide sufficent troops, equipment, veichles/jets/choppers, decent living and washing facilites.

    did anyone see the photos of that so called shower block they had in afghan. Disgraceful
