Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

  1. First post, so apologies if this is in the wrong forum, hopefully a moderator will move it if it is :)

    Having a bit of a debate with the other half regarding watch systems at Mount Wise in the mid 80s. I only served at one shore establishment being Mount Wise and remember doing what I think was known as the Faslane watch system, 2 nights / 2 days / 4 days off. The other half is trying to convince me that we did Forenoon / Afternoon / Nights as Northwood did. If we did then I slept through it to be honest

    Any one out there that can help it would be appreciated before I sign the divorce papers over it :eh:
  2. I served in Mountwise on to occasions and did 2 night, 2 days, 4 off. That was in the late 80's
  3. I was a 'day worker' in MHQ Mount Wise and did watch on, stop on.

    Ahhh, the wonders of WINTEX! :tongue:
  4. I was in Faslane Commcen and can concur with the watchkeeping system. Just managed to get home to Gosport in time to turn around and get back to Faslavatory!
  5. WTF was MHQ Mount Wise?
  6. Duh, Maritime Headquarters at a guess. In Guzzland

  8. Ahhh - the Pit.........
