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 heard today that on the medical at hms raleigh on the Tuesday you have a chest x ray. Why is this needed? Just curious as it's the first I've herd and I'm hoping to go in as an aircraft handler.

  5. To find out if you have a backbone. If they don't find one, you might find yourself tranfered to Dartmouth.

    Pigeons!

    Don't start me on pigeons. About as pointless as wasps in my book.

    It's ok. They're not screening you for wasps and pigeons. You are allowed to take wasps to Raleigh by the way. The RN Actively encourages keeping them as pets.
     
  13. As your joining the RN, shitehawks are the preferred pet, pongo's use pigeons as it's the fastet way of communicating between units, especially if they're on Dii.
     
  14. I went to the pet shop the other day to buy a pet wasp...the shopkeeper said "Sorry mate we don't sell wasps"...I said "But you got some in the window"!!

    I thangyew!!!!

    Can't see wasp going as well with black pudding and bacon as pigeon does.
