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. Herald: "Small Fire On Board Devonport-Based Frigate"

    "The Royal Navy have confirmed a Devonport based warship suffered a small fire on New Year's Eve.

    Firefighters were called to the blaze aboard the Type 23 frigate HMS Northumberland – which is currently at its base at Devonport dockyard – but the fire was out on arrival."

  2. So FIREREP A are now sent to the Herald?!
  3. Seems like a total non-story to fill the pages, still managed to get nuclear submarines mentioned for maximum scare effect. It's a well known fact that a small fire on a frigate can spread to a nearby nuclear boat and cause a sympathetic explosion with resulting mushroom cloud!!!

  4. 'Small fire' becomes 'blaze' in the very next line. Impressive work Herald.

  5. You say that like it would be a bad thing!

    Oh, and the fire should have been 'extinguished', not 'out' nice one and well done the 'Errald

    Most of us do when fire is involved.
  10. Did a toaster set off the Minerva alarm again?
  11. Biblical Conflagration would have sounded even better...:angryfire:
  12. We saw daughter off on deployment in August, got phone call three days later telling us they had an electrical fire 15 minutes outside Portsmouth harbour . In the words of Ronnie Wood "Combustable fkrs"
  13. Surely "RN Warship deploys and doesn't have a fire" would be a much more realistic headline ... no?
