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. Can anyone point me in the direction of a good on-line sources for the history of this ship, a first rate around the time of Trafalgar? My searches haven't come up with anything useful yet.
    Thanks.

  5. That's the jobby. Thanks Gents.

    Now I've worked out what a receiving ship is, I know why my ancestor James Dalton went from there to HMS Mars, just before Trafalgar.
