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. After watching warship earlier i noticed a few ratings were wearing Desert DPM and just wondered if all ratings get issued Greens/deserts or is it just for upperdeck ratings? I know a couple submariners that where issued them but im not sure if its a waste of locker space if they are not strictly needed for your job? sorry if this comes across as a daft question i just wondered tis all :thumbright: cheers :)

    Shore side it seems everyman and his dog can randomly wear DPM for no reason what so ever. No I am going to stop and go to bed.
