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:

    "A Halifax volunteer Royal Navy Reserve has been awarded with one of the highest honours in the forces for outstanding contribution.

    Seaman Robert Kendrick was given the Lord Lieutenant’s Certificate by Dr Ingrid Roscoe, the Lord Lieutenant of West Yorkshire in a private ceremony in Leeds."

    Well done and all that but I'm not convinced that a Certificate of Appreciation from a Lord Lieutenant is a Forces' honour, let alone one of the highest.

    Seaman Robert Kendrick is more likely to be Leading Seaman Robert Kendrick.
     
  3. The Halifax Courier is renown for it's bad reporting - I know, I have been on the receiving end of it several times.

    You could literally spell the bloody story out to them and they would completely ignore it, edit it and post it without giving you the opportunity to review it. Reporting at it's worst! On the upside there is the old saying "there's no such thing as bad publicity". Not sure if it's true but if articles like this (albeit badly written) raise the profile of the RNR, then is that not a good thing?
