Diving in Bastion!

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. Pongo's and water,,,who'd have thought!
  2. The Defence Diving School (DDS) at Horsea Island is so-called because trainees are from the RN and the Army.

    And the last time I was at Horsea there were a sight more pongoes around the diving school than matelots.
  4. Perchance all those the missing matelots were actually in the water/mud...

  7. Mr Karon was obese, had high blood pressure, a high cholesterol reading and chronic kidney disease. He had been prescribed statins and also suffered from Raynaud’s syndrome – where the vascular system responds to cold by shutting down the circulation in the extremities. An open verdict was recorded at the inquest in to Mr Karon’s death in 2010 but coroner Michael Johnston said the deceased had a severe heart condition which meant he could have ‘dropped dead at any minute’ and should have been referred to his GP before diving................. Looks like he was on borrowed time anyway Janner and he was only 54.
