Forgotten grave found and restored by sailor and his dog.

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. Nice to know this close to remembrance that we are still remembering the dead before us (and finding those lost by the sidelines) and restoring their final resting places to former glory. As a note though, I'd have thought one's would have been appropriate as opposed to 4's with medals. Are we now going down the route of the army and going to parade in working rig as a standard?

  2. The only one wearing medals with his PCS is the bish, and they're a bit weird at the best of times!!!!

    True. There a few military occupations that pay a wage based on the belief of a fictional character, rather than the ability of the individual :)

  4. Maybe the only one wearing medals with his PCS, but my comment on wearing 4's / PCS on parade still stands Wrecks.

    To be fair, the Padre does have his bling on the scarf he is wearing.

    The figure on the right is a fine figure of a man, I did not know they made uniform that size!

  6. Re-reading the dit, most of them are OC's from BRNC and Phase 1's from Raleigh. They may not have 1's yet.
     
  7. OCs from BRNC are certainly issued with No 1 Uniform. They were all wearing it for the open weekend when parents and partners visit early in their course.

    I see that the army major was wearing medals. Nice to see a sense of decorum!

  11. Anyone else spotted that Maj Charlie King appears to have come to the ceremony straight from his primary school?

    Is this a "Don't policemen look young nowadays?" type of observation or a "feast of the Passover" drip? ;)

    No, it looks like you will constantly keep us in condition with your moaning about our moaning though! :(
