good websites

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. You know what it's like, its easier to go to the bookmarked pages rather than spend time searching out new favourites. I'd love some recommendations for good websites and I've added links to three of my own below - happy surfing:

    Gardening in the UK
    The title says it all. You have to register to post questions or answers but I've found it useful for many years and it is searchable.

    Adam Phillips' website - Biteycastle
    Discovered this last year - lovely slightly scary animations by this 35 year old Australian artist. For a REAL thrill turn down the lights, turn up the volume and click on this link:


    I think the BBC websites are great - the Food Programme one has great recipes The Food Programme and Desert Island Discs is good for a laugh. If someone ever finds a list of the items that Princess Margaret chose when she appeared please let me know - it was a LONG time ago. It's a great pity they can't repeat them - I believe it's for reasons of copyright. Hers was brilliant and always springs to mind when I think of my favourite ever programmes, along with that of Boris Johnson.

    Look forward to checking out other contributions !
  2. Been trawling and found this on the Gaurdians website...........enjoy.

    One of the few opportunities to hear the clipped tones of the princess discussing her life came in 1981, when she was a guest on Radio 4’s Desert Island Discs. Her musical choices suggested a life which straddled the borders of convention. There was Rule Britannia, as sung at the last night of the Proms with Sir Colin Davis conducting the BBC Symphony Orchestra, Scotland the Brave by the Band of the Royal Highland Fusiliers, Guide Me O Thou Great Redeemer by the Pendyrus Male Choir, and an extract from Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake.

    So far, so serious. But what of Sousa’s march King Cotton or Rock Rock Rock by Carl Ravazza and Sid Phillips and his Band? And what price Sixteen Tons, by Tennessee Ernie Ford, a record she liked because she had heard it in a traffic jam and it had cheered her up? :cool:
