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. Nice report and stirs the blood at the sound of HMS Victorious, one thing that is similar to the old carrier is the shot of the 3 high bunks and their close proximity, 4 Mess had little hideaways like this, terrible places to try and escape from a a rip roaring fart.:pottytrain2:

  2. Remember back in the 70's a report that gave the run down on Ruski GMD's, about a foot less deckhead room and 5 bunks up, the bottom one on the deck. Every other bit of space was given over to propulsion and armament.

    “You see someone towards the end of a patrol and think, ‘who on Earth are you?’” says Able Seaman John “Neep” Edward, 33.
    “You can start a ­conversation with a friend at the ­beginning of a patrol, not see them for five or six weeks, then pick it up again where you left off.”
