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. An ex-Royal Marine from Plymouth has appeared in court charged with stealing medals from comrades and selling them on.

    I suppose there is always one bad apple in the barrel that lets the side down.

    Hope he hangs his head in shame and is banned from any associations etc.

  5. Suspended sentence would be appropriate. Hanged on Bickleigh viaduct.

    Stan's got about 47 medals anyway.

    Odds are he wouldn't have missed the odd few if someone had flogged 'em.
  10. back in 66 i was a kid on a bar boat at rosyth,well one day my pittance as an od was taken from my locker,told the l/s and the next thing i saw was the cook being manhandled down into the hold by a bunch of scary boomers and i was told they placed his fingers in the splicing vice and broke every finger,i was uptop and heard his screams,they just left him in the hold and as the only ladder was a vertical rung he had to be lifted out on a neil robertson.the cops came down but their efforts to find out what happened were half hearted.the cook had a gambling problem and was never seen again,wonder if he ever stole again after that i doubt it.
  11. Justice was done in them days , :thumright:
  12. Not allowed to take those measures these days. You'd get done and find yourself paying compensation to the "victim", er, I mean thief. Besides you'd never get past the Risk Assessment process.
