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. Didn't get any time to take a look around during my RNAC but heading there for my phase 2...What sort of sporting facilities do they have there? What's the gym like? Any evening classes/clubs you can get involved with?

  3. It's pretty good and has everything you could need for most sports. Only prob you get **** all time to use it what with having rounds at 7pm every night. Enjoy

  4. Rounds every night? I heard they lay off you after a while in phase 2?
  5. That's a big fat negative, especially where rounds are concerned.

    Rounds at sea too.

    Tell me about it! Every night walking round with the XO, checking the gulches for illegal beer stores and fresh porn while he spins gash dits in the Mess Square. It's a tough life... :oops:
  8. We sometimes had the XO wander around my last boat, he never came back aft though, I think the steam scared him!

    Fixed that for you... :thumbleft:
  10. What time do you usually clock off from duties for the day?
  11. 1600 if under instruction but if you're duty watch you don't "clock off" (it's called "secure" in Naval parlance) for 24 hours although you can get your head down when duty but not of you're on watch.
