Henry The Hatter!

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. :grin: Talking of Hatters;- picture this, Waterloo Station the train disgorges hundreds of ratings off on Summer leave when striding down the platform comes a tall stereotype City Gent wearing a BROWN Bowler hat!!!!!=D
     
  2. And there was me thinking this was going to be a tale about Mr Henry in Gib - remember him?

    Despite my gay friendly credentials, this feel good hatter story is getting kicked out of Current Affairs. If it was likely to get a serious airing it would belong in history. 'Old shop still there' isn't going to tickle anyone's intellect (among those with any to begin with).

    Hats are back.

  6. I was thinking of Alice at a strange tea party, not someone bending over to serve his patrons.
     
  7. A city gent who,s a Brown Hatter, Hmmm! who would have thought it.

    Hmmm! Is that the sound of you drooling at the very thought?
     
  9. Anyone know where the term 'mad as a hatter' came from?

    I heard that some of the chemicals and glues used in Victorian hat making fucked you up a bit, some had hallucinogenic effects. Most hat makers ended up a bit mongy from this.

    Hence the term.

    Cool eh?
     
  10. It was the mercury used in the hat making process - probably :confused2:

    As mad as a hatter
