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. I have just watched the memorial service in Basras. Very poignant, the sort of thing that should have the kids in school assembled in the hall to watch.

    I salute all those that have gone in our name, and was so glad to see they included all the civilians that were attached in the roll call.

    Thanks to the BBC for not cutting a sad and important memorial short.
     
  2. I also watched it. My thoughts were spared for those brave lads and lasses. Also for their colleagues, friends and importantly family

    Never forgotten!

    BZ boys and girls. You did your jobs well
     
  3. We have it on in the background on the big screens..

    Very well done, watching it come to a close. I did two tours there, and it really felt like home by the time I left. Always hard, but made me feel as though I did something worthwhile.
     
  4. Very moving, although the padre should have had some kind of headgear on to protect his solar panel!
