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. Not sure if this belongs in here or 'History' but hopefully the moderators will do what's necessary - if need be.

    Quick silly question re the old HK Squadron.

    I was lucky enough to spend 6 weeks with HMS Swift back in 1987. Visited Pusan and Japan then back to HK.

    Apparently around 1988 a couple of the Chinese ratings were nicked for smuggling heroin.

    Was anyone there who knows the true story? RP's ?
