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. Old hat and well repeated statement. Its been like it since the 60's, an ongoing critism that won't go away. Trouble is we never seem to learn, hence the present day mess !
    • Like Like x 1
  2. From the Telegraph: "the dispute erupted into warfare April 2, 1981 when Argentine troops seized the islands"
