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:

  2. Where were these data obtained from?

    On the current policy front on the strategic nuclear deterrent, I suggest you read HC551 (2006-07 session) produced by the House of Commons Defence Committee, below:

    The Future of the UK's Strategic Nuclear Deterrent: the White Paper: Government Response to the Committee's Ninth Report* of Session 2006-07


    * HC 225-I [Report] and HC 225-II [Evidence]
