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 group of Royal Navy veterans have been thanked for the role they play in transforming civilians into sailors at HMS Raleigh.

    The 14 veterans, who are members of the local Royal Navy Associations, are assigned to each of HMS Raleigh’s four training division and the rehabilitation unit, which looks after recruits recovering from injury. They act as mentors, paying regular visits to encourage the trainee sailors as they complete their course."

  2. Well done!!
  3. I had the pleasure of meeting one of these lads a couple of weeks ago. Great to see the RN is using the experience of these guys to pass on to the babies. Their enthusiasm is contagious. They don't receieve any pay or expenses for the time they put in.

    Great effort.
