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. Has anyone else been asked by there AFCO if they want to visit HMS Trenchant on the 14th of March?
    In Devonport?

  2. Not a good idea stating RN units locations (especially boats) in an open source forum. OPSEC springs to mind!!!!!
     
  3. Funny thing is the port location of the T boats is public knowledge
     
  4. Funny thing is the whereabouts of T boats isn't! In port or not!
     
  5. I meant, its public knowledge that the Trafalgar class boats are based at HMNB Devonport. Thats all I meant.
     
  6. Correct, and as I said the 'T' boats locations most certainly isn't public knowledge, and as you will see from the first post there are dates & names.
     
  7. I'm sure vBulletin is not open source at all.

    Are people on the waiting list privvy to OPSEC senstive information?
     
  8. If it's so secret.......why can I access this on the web:-

    TODAY

    Please discuss????

  9. Tits stowed, I was unaware of RN movements being in the public domain. Apologies.
     
  10. Boats names started to appear on the movements page of the Herald not long after the wall came down, before that it would just say "a submarine". Bit of a bugger because the wife knew when I'd be alongside, no sneaking down Unionstrasse before going home.
     
  11. Failing that, just ask a taxi driver!
     
  12. Not been asked. Us northerners seem to miss out alot. Can't think why.. :)
     

  13. Guss Honeybun did it before that. A POSA from Defiance told his Missus that he had been pierhead jumped to S*********** but actualy went on holls with a tasty WSA. Q Judi Spears "Happy Birthday to little Johny who is very happy because his daddy who is on HMS S********** has come in a week early.........." Missus phones Boat, Q divorce loss of house and bussiness............

    LOOSE LIPS SINKS SHIPS.........
     
  14. So, anyway. I agree with Chaz.

    All that has been shown to be in the public domain thus far is past movements, not future movements. (And before anyone posts details of projected end dates of boats undergoing LOP(R) etc, that doesn't count, as they are not operational.)

    I still answer any shore call with "Submarine on * berth".

    With boats name's plastered along the brow with a tarpaulin or a nice bit of brightwork on the side of the fin, its not hard to work out.
     
  16. I always did that. Waste of time really as you say "submarine, * berth", the caller says "is that the T***" and you always say "yes".
    What was the point of saying that????
