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:

    Ouch, fancy not noticing you were shot in the groin? Call me a wimp, but I reckon I'd have felt that one.

    Anyone recognise the medals - L to R, can recognise the DSM & GSM, but what are the other two?
  2. I have read it’s a commemorative one for Vietnam and an Order of St Johns, this is off the noisy neighbours and their Walt hunters. They are dubious of his claims.
  3. The one on the far right is the US Vietnam Service medal, not sure about the other one.
  4. Cap Badge? or RNA/ RN blazer badge?

    Jeez, it's a colour photograph. What more proof do they need? :toothy3:

    Probably force of habit - most fantasists claim they were Royal Marines rather than Matelots.
  8. If he's a walt, a bullet in the bollocks is going to extremes.

  9. At last I got something right! :wink:
  10. Mea Culpa.

    I skim read the article earlier today, thought I could see a green lid, picked up on the word "Commando", reckoned the bullet in the groin story was unusual and selected it for the Corps forum.

    Have to say that I took it at face value and didn't realise that there were aspects to the story which would cast doubt on it.

    Happy to move it elsewhere if requested.
  11. I'm not going to get a cockstand on about it, I just wondered why, Now I know thanks.

    I've moved this to current affairs as it was in yesterdays paper & we can't have Royal claiming all the glory. :walk:
  13. Thanks, Ninja! :icon_smile:

    I see that the Sun and Express now have the story:

    Bullet out 40 yrs on | The Sun |News - Home of the Daily and Sunday Express | UK News :: Bullet found in war hero’s leg after 40 years

    It started out here:

    DARTMOUTH TODAY | NEWS | Surgeon finds Vietnam bullet in man finds Vietnam bullet in man’s leg

    If that Bullet went in his leg let alone saw the action end of a rifle I've got a 8 inch penis, if our hero ever got to see some real Commando's It's Nine inches (safe on that one :) ) Seen abit of action it's a tenner, Vietnam it's 11. Cambodia it's a foot long. Infact, if anything that jug eared misguided fuckwit says about Commando forces, Vietnam, Working with US special forces etc says I'll wipe the smeg off my bellend whilst stooping down to tie my shoe laces my cock will be that long.

    Two Matelot walts in one year, things are looking up boys.

    Wiki's shit, he's not on it. :)
  17. At the end of the day, someone, somewhere put a bullet into his leg. And that isn't a daily occurrence.

    Nah, Someone, somewhere put a round that has never seen the speed of a speeding bullet somewhere near a walt and a journo.
