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. My OH was given a freebie Soya Milk at the station today - EEE Yuk !!
    I told her that milk powder from the mechanical cow tasted better - she does not believe that any such animal exists.... 8O

    Any ex Chefs care to enlighten her on this thread ?

    Is it still used these days ?

  2. Ark Royal certainly had a milk making machine on board in 75. It was called a mechanical cow and was supposed to produce reconstituted milk that tasted like the real thing. Personally I never thought it tasted good enough to drink.
  3. There was one on Intrepid and what it produced tasted awful, that and EEC intervention butter which tasted more like Castrol.
  4. So what kind of cowpats does a mechanical cow leave behind?

  5. Had one on the Albion in 67, every now and again some tosser who should have cleaned it properly, didn't! There by every one coming down with the "Dog"................................The screaming shits to you Civvy's.
    Very unpleasant.
