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. Morning team.

    Am taking my lad to Pompey tomorrow to join his first ship and would appreciate some info.

    Can private cars enter the dockyard?

    Whether they can or not, is there any way of finding out where the ship is berthed?

    My thanks in advance.

    Have sent you a PM.
  3. Family will need a fleet form 3 to get into the dockyard unless they have the appropriate ID, you should be able to get a temp car pass at the pass office for the dockyard. Just ask at the gate where the ship is berthed they will tell you.
  4. Good luck to you both, if security and all that allows- what ship is he joining? :D
  5. Many thanks folks and thanks Soleil for the PM.

    OPSEC Rachel. Naming the ship and his join date might identify him, but thanks for the wishes.

    Just don't get confused and take him to your first ship - I'm told Mary Rose is still closed to visitors ;-)

    Best of luck to him on a day he will never forget!

  8. Due to an after-splicing-the-mainbrace episode, I joined my first with 6 days 9s still to do.
  9. Got in the dockyard. Piece of piss. Via Trafalgar gate.

    Had a half-hour wander about, bugger me but Pompey's changed.
