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. Here is your chance to own a pair of Purdey's (well sort of) and donate some cash to Hols4Heroes.

    Up for grabs are a pair of original A3 black and white photographs of beautifully engraved James Purdey & Sons shotgun actions incorporating large scroll and game scenes. They are framed in walnut (like the Purdey stocks).

    The pictures were not originally meant for sale and were used as patterns for Purdey engravers to copy, therefore they are totally unique. No other photographs of these particular actions exist.

    They will come with a signed letter from the Purdey Factory Manager confirming their authenticity.

    Please be aware before bidding, that I have cleaned the pictures up as much as possible, but due to the fact that they have spent the past 15 years unframed and in a factory environment, there is a very slight mark on the bottom left corner of one of them (bottom picture), however it is barely visible as you can see from the photos and it adds to the charm somewhat!

    So lads, any chance of perhaps a little card slipped inside the packaging of these when they get posted.....perhaps write something like "Happy Birthday, sorry it's a little late, your loving son.".......? It'll be going to a UK address...... :)
