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. Gen Sir David Richards is to be the next Chief of the Defence Staff, the UK's most senior military officer, the Ministry of Defence has announced.

  2. So he will now cease to be a soldier and become a political animal trotting out the party line.
     
  3. If you think CGS isn't political, you're a little naive....
     
  4. Isn't that what I wrote? :roll:
     
  5. No :wink: (read the TLA again)

    IMD
     
  6. Hell, if you think anyone above the rank of Pvt isn't "political" you haven't been paying attention in your COIN classes.....
     

  7. What's with all these acronyms, we are British not STs!
     
  8. Counter-insurgency. A phrase coined by Gen Templar in the Malayan Confrontation, so entirely British.
     
  9. This is a man that has urged a "fundamental re think" of our armed forces. I wish him good luck with the tunnel visioned vested interest battalions he will be facing. :roll:
