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. Can you use your own bedding on board ship or do you have to take issue bedding? Would you reccommend two kit bags or try jam into one?
    Many thanks people.
     
  2. you really dont have all that room onboard pal

    which ship are you joining?

    Only take the bare essentials and once you've settled onboard, then you can add to it
     
  3. Busterbroon, thanks, Nottingham, flying out thursday, have been told by Collingwood take all kit. Can you use own bedding?, would reduce weight and space. Cheers mate.
     
  4. i'm sure they supply you with bedding, just take your own white sheets for the matress and they supply the pillows and duvets
