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. more kicks than halfpence........criticism or punishment instead of gratitude

    the fat will be in the fire...... to have an explosion of anger

    be cheese-paring..... to be extreamly mean.

    like Caesars wife...above suspicion.

    with a jaundiced eye...with a sour disaproving look

    nobody's poodle...somebody with a mind of his own

    dog days...the hottest weather.

    look out for squalls... be on guard for trouble

    a cloud no bigger than a mans hand...a distant threat that may become dangerous with time.

    man of straw.. man without means

  2. I thought that a 'man of straw' refers to an easily corruptable person? Certain characters used to hang around outside law courts with a bit of straw hanging out the back of their shoe to indicate that they were prepared to testify for cash. Used to happen a lot at the Royal Courts of Justice.
