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. I thought their reparations were the substantial land clearing work in London undertaken by H W Goering & Co's fly-by-night operation!
     
  2. Only visited Germany once , '72 on Fife we pulled into Wilhemshaven for 4 days. Dockyard was absolutely spotless with patches of green and trees everywhere , dockyard maties in smart ovies and looking into some of the workshops they were busy working.

  4. It may have been a revelation.

    Q "How many people work in Portsmouth Naval Base?"
    A "About half of them".
     
  5. That many?o_O
     
  6. Went to Wilhelmshaven too. All I remember about it is they gave every member of the ships company a bottle of rum. Which I still have incidentally.

  9. Back to the germans, in Germany if you put on Overalls you are looked on quite differently, in England you are a dirty oily oik ,and progressive governments have made mess of the Apprenticeship scheme, you can now be an apprentice Barista, and dont start me on about the scrapping of the Tiffy/Mechanician/Sultan. Rant over.
