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. Lets get the blood pumping peeps!

    Where do you all stand on the good old 'Golden Rivet'?

    Any stories to tell? Don't be shy, I know you all arn't!
     
  2. I try to stand on the top but having size 10 feet its a bit of a squeeze!
     
  3. A word of advice, standing on the Golden Rivet will cause extreme pain.
     

  4. Not as much as sitting on it! :lol: :lol: :lol: 8O

    I'll show you mine if you'll show me yours...

    When I was QM on HMS Victory in 1989 a rather pished young naive WPC (on board for a function in the Mess) was persuaded by some of her older colleagues to come and ask me for a VIP tour of the ship (quite common outside working hours for guests on board). I began to give her the usual spiel, when she asked to see the 'Golden Rivet'. She was totally oblivious to what she had said, and explained that her (male) colleagues had told her to mention this fantastic naval tradition - which I obliged to show her, whilst touring the Orlop Deck where Nelson popped his clogs! If he could have seen what I did there, he'd be turning in his barrel!! 8O :wink:
     
  6. I have come to the opinion that SgtPB is a bit of a tart, what with the above and the story about coming back on board with the 'mess' round his mouth!

    Takes one to know one!! Nur nee nur nee nur nur... but you'll tell by the date of the dit that I was a young, impressionable young man myself at the time; I've grown up since then (maybe)! Doesn't make me a bad person does it?! :? :wink:
     
  8. RE:Goldie Rivet,
    RE: pain From the Riveter,

    It aint the frigging rivet that causes the pain, it's that hairy assed bugger from the goat locker wanting to show a newbie the famous rivet, if asked refuse, if forced stick a flashbang up his arrse
     
  9. Do beleive that the Yacht ,had a rivet specially painted gold, down in the engine room, to show guests after an function onboard .
     
  10. I innocently asked what it was in the RNA bar in Chester some years ago. I really had no idea. I assumed it was something to do with Stokerland. Worse still I asked in a loud voice. There was a great deal of leg pulling at my expense - still I didn't find out what it ACTUALLY meant till I joined RR... Oh the shame! :oops: :oops: :oops:

    Had I only known: I'd have waited for Navy Days, activated my "gaydar" and asked a suitable matelot to show it to me. Damn. :( Still, there's hope... :lol:
