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. Hello

    On the quest for places I visted as a youth I am wondering if anyone has any pictures of what used to be HMS Glendower at Pwhelli North Wales.

    When my Dad joined the Navy he was sent there and said he spent his basic training building a holiday camp for Billy Butlins.

    The place is now a Haven Holiday camp and little remains but one concrete gun emplacement.

  2. Had a trawl of the net but got no pics.You could try the Glendower Assoc.

  3. Re HMS Glendower, there is no written history but The Reminiscences of a Radar Plotter by John Barford Lindop ( Amazon Books, UK, ) has a section of this establishment including photos .
