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. Hello
    I served on HMS Aveley during the '70's which was the last of the Dingley class of inshore minehunters.
    I wonder if there is anyone on this forum who was onboard at around the same time '75-'77.
    As for being inshore we probably spent more time at sea than many proper 'grey' ships (When I joined the ship was painted in the same colours as the royal yacht with which we shared a warehouse).
    A storm in the Channel in this thing was nothing short of frightening.
    All the best
  2. I also served on the Aveley in the 70's and also while it was coloured with a black hull and a white superstructure. I think I was on her around 73/74. Haha maybe you were my relief!
  3. He may not answer as the post was 6 years ago. Good thread resurrection though :)

  4. Wonder where he went, I used to think his posts droll and funny.
    The age some of the posters are now you get worried to ask.
    I went off air for a week or two and the fuckin RR CID were after me.
