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. Damn good effort by the Aussies AP, its just a shame they kept it quiet or our bunch of mongs might've learnt something from it, like how to defend themselves! :)
  2. and
    Love it! :p
  3. 'Twas discussed last week (briefly) on another thread. BZ to the Aussies say I, but a pity that our grownups didn't take it to heart and make it part of the training. Pictures of Arfur and his ipod, backed up by his seamum, f***ing off a couple of Iranian gunboats would have made much better television than the subsequent fiasco!

    Oooh, hate to nick SF's role in being a pedant, but it was 3 years ago.

    iPods were not invented then- completely different ball-game.
  5. We could still have learnt some good old sheer bloody mindedness, at least on behalf of those that can say "engage"!!
  6. I'll join you in the pedants' corner then Ninj. Didn't say ipods were in existance three years ago - just that Arfur etc., would have made a better TV picture had they had the Aussies' example to follow.

    It was posted - but this is the version I saw first, contains some minor details ie the date, that the Beeb managed to omit....

    You can always rely on the Dinks for some colourful language. Had to explain to our exchange Aussie TASO that putting a sign over his cabin door saying 'Arbeit Macht Frei' prior to it being used by a German FOSTIE was not such a good idea......
