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. I have just read on another "maritime " site - nothing to do with the forces - that on her return to the UK HMS Nottngham is now to stay alongside at Pompey until decommissioning date in 2010. Ships company being split up etc. etc.

    I have no reason to believe/disbelieve this storey but is there any truth behind this?

    Are we losing yet more ships?

  2. uh oh
  3. How about including a link to that site.

  4. I think it was already posted earlier on SF here is the link
  5. Gen dit no Sh*t, apparently even after her (expensive) refit HMS Liverpool is apparently in a better material state, so Liverpool will be extended and Nottingham de-commissioned.

    One less Pompy Gash Badge for me to serve on.
  7. Also look out for HMS Southampton,and HMS Exeter going the same way in the VERY Near Future. !!!!!!!!
  8. Sigh, yet another old home going to the knackers yard.
  9. Its about time all the 42s were decommissioned. Just a shame theres not enoug h45s to replace them all :(
  10. Yes the 42s may be coming to the end of their life, but don't knock them, I served on 5 of them in my time and loved every minute of that. Great ships, great ships companies too. The new 45s will have cabins for JRs, and a communal mess area, I'm not sure that's my idea of building a team spirit amongst the lower deck, after all half the fun is trying to get your head down for the morning watch on Channel night whilst the rest of the messdeck parties around you...... :thumright:

  14. Yeh, the EU is going to fill in the English channel, then we won't be an island and won't need a navy ...
