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:

  2. "A specialist rig began six weeks of drilling on Friday, sampling the seabed in the harbour and in the Solent." It's just dogshit isn't it???
  3. Dogshit and discarded plates and cutlery from the gangway staff.

    Oh and a davit that I watched a docky spend 3 days welding and painting before I hoyed it into the oggin.

    And a fridge.
  4. Yeah rock on !
  5. Are they going to have to demolish Ft Blockhouse and the Round Tower to get it in?????????
  6. Loads of Chocks and chain lashings down there:laughing2:
  7. Plenty of beer cans knives n forks mess trays etc
  8. It reminders me of the old gash-shoot song --
    "Tinkle tinkle little spoon knife and fork will follow soon".:-D

    ...not being cynical about recent developments in the South Atlantic, but Argentina might show a vested interest, as well. :wink:
  12. Far more importantly, QHM will be very annoyed (not to mention British Gas and anyone else owning the pipelines).
  13. Thats about the only chance of striking oil or gas there. I just wounder what beasties the dredging operation will unearth for the EOD boys. .
