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. What books would the forum recommend for someone preparing for AIB but does not have a great amount of Naval knowledge?

    I fully understand that keeping abreast of current affairs regarding the RN is a must but I was looking for books that contain more general knowledge about the RN. If it makes a difference to your replies I am applying to be a marine engineer officer...
  2. Hi!


    Do you read Navy News?

    You might find Warship World interesting too.

    Both of these are available at W H Smith's.

    The problem with recommending books is that practically all of them were printed before the cuts began and I wouldn't want to mislead you by suggesting a book in which some of the information is not up to date.
  3. We subscribe to Navy News, but I've never heard of Warship World... !!
  4. Purely for your information, this book used to be very popular with AIB Candidates, but it went out of print.

    The Royal Navy Handbook Ministry Of Defence |

    It now says that this book will be available in August, but it is going to need some fairly hefty editing in that case eg one of the things it boasts of is a chapter on the STOVL variant of the F-35.
