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. we've hardly got enough to base in the u.k
  2. We already have if you count the two that are out there for two years (I think) with crew rotation.

    which are about to increase to 4.

    And the article quoted is only a suggestion by the paper's staff - not acknowledged by the Defence Ministry.
  4. Yes I can, the fact that the Ramsey & Blyth are already out in Bahrain shows that someone thinks its a good idea to have some sort of Fwd operating base out there, I think there are 2 more plastic ships going out there as well.

    I wouldnt be surprised if there was a plan to have an SSN permanently based out there as well.

    It may not be our own base but we will certainly have a 'Middle East Sqn' before long
