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. Difficult to say,really,as I don't know much about military matters. But ....our troops in Afghanistan being killed and maimed because the right kind of bomb-proof vehicles are STILL not available ?? Chinook helos that MOD bought 8 or ten years ago STILL unable to fly because MOD won't pay the USA for the right operating software ?? .50 calibre Browning heavy machine-gun ammunition,made in Pakistan and bought by MOD "on the cheap" only permits single-shot ,not automatic fire ?? You couldn't make it up,Mr Brown !!
    But ......The Taleban seem to be managing quite well with AK47 rifles,RPGs,and home-made bombs ; now,why is that,I wonder ?? Is there a lesson here,Mr Brown ?? Sometimes,it's the simplest things that work the best.....
  2. UK troops reject Gordon Brown, claim proper kit lacked.
    surely that's the way it should read !
  3. He may well reject them but we all know where Iraq is concerned the allegations are true.
  4. Funny that everyone you see has brought their own kit to some extent.
  5. Yeah but to be fair thats always happened. Not that I agree that the troops are getting the right equipment in sufficient numbers!!!
