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. Sorry, but at 15 euros for an 'unknown author' e-book, I'll be passing on that one.

    So, pray tell, what did your bit in the book involve?
  2. I used to be in a book...........then I went ex-directory.

  3. 15 euros sounds a bit steep. Only 1.04 uk pounds...in uk.
  4. Left my self open for abuse I guess,but that's the price of 15 minutes of fame. You didn't mention the Led Zeppelin neck thingy dangly wot sit. I love you witty. Makes I chuckle. Largely.:laughing3:
  5. Its £1.02 on mine, they are trying to swindle you! I might read it, as judging a book by its cover as one is supposed to the photograph looks inviting (giggity!)

    I'm actually mentioned in a book as well in relation to the first gulf war. I posted the bit on here a while ago somewhere.
  7. Best you don't mention when we were on a T boat together, or that place beginning with R (that's R, not Arrrr). 'Er indoors thinks I'm an angel :angel8:

  10. I'm in a book too! Manual of Surgery, Rose and Carless, 19th edition, 1960. page 57, fig 3.8 (photo), and pages 200/201 chapter 11 for the text. The photo was actually taken in 1943 and I was presented with the grand sum of 7/6 (three half crowns) for being a co-operative subject whilst being manhandled by a group of budding surgeons. Since my pocket money at the time was reckoned in coppers I felt extraordinarily rich.

    Not only am I in a book. I'm in a museum. Now my boy thinks that I'm really old. The Rural Life Museum in Tilford.
