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:


    There is a young lady from North Devon, called Lydia Cross. Lydia's story is here ...

    Last Friday (16th April) Lydia ran a mile on her blade prosthetic legs (she calls them her 'leggies'). This may not have been aired much outside of the Westcountry TV area so I am posting this here. I have to tell you it gets very dusty in my house whenever she comes on the news!

    She is an inspirational young lady and should be applauded by all. She has completed many fundraising events.

    This link is from the North Devon Journal and outlines the run that she completed, along with Mark Ormrod and Ben McBean
