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. Well done the Iron Duke for a text book response!

  2. Or . . . 100 yards to the front and 30 yards to the left. Brilliant.
  3. Either they were testing the water (please excuse), or they thought that the horn was signaling them to come over for a friendly chat? They did compleatly shit themselfs mind!

  4. The worst fcuking nightmare of modern maritime warfare well done guys, probably innocent but the drill workks, wish we had the mini-gun in 2003.
  5. But that was the nutty boat, there's sod all in the cox'n rip-off.
  6. Warning shots. what a lame-dick way to treat people who "inadvertently" creep up on multi million £ warships. ******* dicks.

    I'm gonna go off and be angry far away from a newspaper or a keyboard.
  7. I think that RN gunnery was up to it's usual standard of utter shittery and they just dubbed the order for warning shots.

    I thought the same thing Stan, but hark; the voice of experience:

    Earlychopper, your experience is?
  9. I concur, yet somehow retain my right to take the piss :)

    Typical Mail bollocks too. The unidentified boat is Iranian. Eh? As usual with Daily Mail articles on Defence, one could tear it apart. Some of the text and reality don't line up.

    Not earlychopper then.
