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. I love the old English sayings and,having found a book of them, I think they should be revived so:
    I wish all you “Fartle Berries[Dirty Bottoms] Mutton Mongers [Womanisers] Hopper Arsed [Having Large Protruding buttocks] Sad Dogs[Debauched men] Best wishes

    PS. Where does the term Downtime come from re. Sailors runs ashore? Why not just having a run ashore?
    I don't like the way things are changed,we should stick to traditional terms for the RN but that's just being a bit of a Dinosaur I reckon.
