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. Sister sub was M1, mounting a 16" gun, sank in collision with a merchant ship SS Vidar ,in West Bay Dorset.

    The M class boats were built on redesigned 'K' class hulls.The 'K' being the worst submarine ever.Steam driven,they killed more submariners by accidents than the Germans ever did in war.

    From memory M1 was found lying off Start Point right at the extremity of Lyme Bay. M2 is roughly the other end of Lyme Bay.

    M2 could certainly launch the seaplane very quickly, more proof that Submariners do it better (until it all goes wrong)
     
  3. Submarines and Royal Marines; both carry matelots :angel7:

    2. Sub Marines

  7. Thanks for that. I've dived the M2 a number of times so it was pretty special to see the video footage.
