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. Hi, I'm almost 17 an thinking of joining the Navy but my dad is an ex tankie and paps on about their is nothin better than a 120mm throbber stickking out in front of you. He syas that the action is all army these days and the only action the navy sees is looking for saop in the showers. Is this true coz I don't feel like gettin bimmed all the time ? I don't want to join the army raelly becuase thet are bullies.

    Please advise pls.

    Call it intuition, but maybe Dad's right.

    Welcome, by the way.

    (120mm = less than 5 inches?)

    Speak for yourself, Big Boy! :wink:

    (If we use enough gay innuendo will it scare him away?!) :oops:
  5. p.s Just kidding fellas.

    ....throw out Fishing Pole and start winding in............ :thumright:

    I'm currently an Arrse member (ex army too) and joined rumration this morning to see what's going on here.

    Seriously, I know the Navy gets slagged off on arrse now and again and like to get both sides of the story sometimes.

    (I won't become a pain..I promise).

    Well, I've just had a mince past the showers & there was nothing happening I'm afraid.
  7. Don't worry mate, all soap on HM Ships these days comes readily fastened to a length of rope. :threaten:

    Welcome onboard. Don't forget to draw your lifejacket from the ship's stores (via Ninja).
  8. Admittedly a 5"shell landing on a tent may not do the same damage as a 15"shell, but my guess is that the end result would be the same.

    Absolutely- you'd probably have to buy a new fly-sheet either way.
