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:

    I've spent more time on one wave than you've spent at sea.

    I joined when HMS Eagle was an egg

    Or the Dead Sea was only just P7
     
  11. I joined up when Centurion was a rank...
     
  12. When ships were wood and men were steel...... :lol:
     
  13. Hopefully I'll still be in after 2019 so I can use this one with the new juniors!!

    My old mate went into the careers office and asked about joining the navy, the bloke behind the desk said "Eh, that's a good idea, let's start one"
     
  14. Some other oldies:

    "I've stood in NAAFI queues longer than you've been in the Navy"

    "I've eaten NAAFI sandwhiches which have been in the mob longer than you"
     
  15. "I've spawned more sea dads than you've had sea days"

    "Dead sea was still sick on shore when I drew my kit"

    And from me pongo days:

    "I was shooting Zulus whilst your great grandad was shooting his load up your great gran"
