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. Close but in my day it was "Bastards" and "Get" and "Wed"

    Or the P.C. Version"Bill Brown Ran Out Yelling Gor Blimey Violet Get Weaving"
     
  2. ????? Soz from the Pinky school at Hms Daedalus???Black Boys Rape Our Young Girls But Violet Gives Willingly
     
  3. That's the one I was taught in the late '70s
     
  4. For Collingwood substitute Boys with Bastards
     
  5. From 'tinterweb

  6. Surely its "Bill Brown Ran Out Yelling Gor Blimey Violet Get Weaving?"
     
  7. As well as I remember from Collingrad 'Black Bastards Rape Our Young Girls But Virgins Go Without', before I recatted to Pinky I was a Seaman, and the mnemonic for the RAS distance line was 'Rub Your Balls With Grease'. Anyone else remember that one?

    Funny how they stuck after all that time!

    As an aside, one of the only formulae I remember from Mechs course is one we used to sing - one over root pi 2 L C is the resonant frequency! Yep, sad I know!!!
     
  8. I was taught the Black Bastards Mnemonic at Collingrad, when I did mechs course it had changed to Bill Brown and I still remember the resonant frequency one as well. Have to say I have never been in a situation where I've had to work out resonant frequency but, there again, 80% of the crap I was taught on all the career courses I did was never used again.
     
  9. I too recatted to Pinky from dabber in 88 and yup, I still recall the 1 over 2pi root LC formula too. Sad isn't it ..
     
  10. Actually yer don't, 'cause it's 'one over 2 pi root LC'.
     
  11. I could say finger trouble, but hey, who REALLY gives a sh1t anyway! The last time I had to work out the resonant frequency of anyting was Mech's Course anyway! (R Mech 09 - go work it out!)
     
  12. Originally Bad was replaced with Black and Boys was replaced by bastards when I was in Collingrad in the mid 70s the RN only became PC after the jennies were allowed to be seagoing ....no muff pics in the offices ...what a crock of crap..man up the RN

  13. "pedant mode on" You didn't do Mech's course if you were on course in 09, it was called ACC (Artificer Candidates Course) by then. "pedant mode off"
     
  14. WRONG, WRONG, WRONG and then WRONG!!! It wasn't in 09 it was RMech Class 09. It was June 81 I think. Can't be arsed getting my docs to find out!

    We started as RMech 09 and after about 3 or 4 months became 'you know whats'!!

    Quality!

    In the day & age of mass interporn your dripping about "no muff pics in the offices".
     
  16. I had the same problem, started as MQC 06 class (Sultan) and finished as ACC 06. Got a bit of a nibble there though :-D
     
  17. Actually, thinking about it, it was worse than that. :angry4:

    We started as RMechs, then we were changed to WMechs, and finally got spat out the end of the sausage machine as WEAs. Didn't care what I was called though, what with Trade Pay, SM Pay, Diving Pay, Separation Pay etc =-D=-D=-D
     
  18. anyone remember WAGPOOH ?? 'fraid it may only mean summat to old bomber "mid-ships ballast" ratings !!
