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. my father died a few years ago, today i was going through some of his old photo's, i came across one that had written on the back me and the lads from the landyard ? he left the mob in 1946 as a p.o.stoker. i can't find any trace of a ship or base of that name, was it a nickname for the vanguard, any ideas would be helpful.
  2. Could be The Lanyard, a pub in Pompey .............
