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. If anyone wishes to send any parcels to FOB's to boost spirits I can give anyone there BFPO. Some guys I work with out here currently package up anything spare and pass it on to the guys and girls who are up there front line. From feedback they go down really well.
    I'm sure if you were in there situation you would be the same. Doesnt take long and is very much appreciated. Thank you for anyones support.
  2. What would they like?

    You say "going spare" being cynical here if I send out a load of porn what's the chances of you fellas sending it on to a FOB?
  4. KAF is BFPO 772, Bastion is 792, no state secret.

    They are forwarded to the fobs from Bastion.
  5. MLP

    What do you think would be most appreciated?
  6. People send too much dhobi gear and nutty so it just stacks up and no-one really wants it. Books, magazines, local newspapers, old dvd's etc are all winners.

    As are Bovril, Tabasco etc, home comforts you don't get too much of.
  7. Top Gear mag, Nuts and Zoo?
  8. National Geographic, and gruff
  9. Yup, they're good, although nuts and zoo seem to be in plentiful supply. I'm more of a GQ, Dazed and Confused and Esquire man myself, but the boys seem to like Maxim and FHM, fourfourtwo, RugbyWorld etc.

    That kind of thing.

    I hear the rockapes like something called "attitude magazine".
  10. Address it to a FOB if you can. The posties at Bastion keep the best parcels mate and the lads at the FOBs get seen off. I know a few units at FOBs if you want addresses mate

    Paperbacks always appreciated. Needs no batteries, truly portable and sand/dirt/grit has minimal impact on functions.

    Miles and Boon is popular so I am told.
  14. A marine/ FST/JTAC D COY, 40 CDO BFPO 792

    Should do the trick

    Wet wipes are usually a good thing to add as well.
  16. Wet wipes and Green and blacks chocolate are like gold ingots.
  17. Is that the complete address?

    What postage is required/ or does it work on weight as with any package from sent through the post office?
  18. A soldier / sailor / airman
    FOB Edinburgh/Robinson/Inkerman etc (Insert fob here)
    OP Herrick
    BFPO 792

    That will do it.

    A Ginger Haired soldier / sailor / airman
    FOB Edinburgh/Robinson/Inkerman etc (Insert fob here)
