Half Crown - Sixpence

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 see our illustrious Foreign Secretary and his lady companion had an uncomfortable arrival in Bagdad yesterday and were unamused at the prospect and actuality of their method of transfer from airport to Green Zone.

    Perhaps when they commit military personnel (who endure these conditions on a daily basis) to further ventures of this nature, they will reflect on the dangers and discomfort that they have experienced.

    I expect that a change of underwear was required at the first safe house after the 'half crown- sixpence' experience going throught the Iraqi military roadblocks at snail's pace. All our politicians should have to go through this experience at least once per quarter to keep in date. ( Like diving minutes)

  2. Can you honestly see any of these farquhars voluntarily getting close to the dangers they ask of their voters?
