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. After the interest in naming Ians_Lads grandads mystery ship,I thought I would throw one in myself.

    I found the photo below in my late Dads collection, I know her name and the port where it was taken,so for a bit of fun can anyone name both.

    Only clues are she is not British and the photo was taken from the P&O R.M.S.Oronsay sometime in the mid to late thirties.

    Frog BB I think. Strasbourg?
  5. German, Derfflinger ?
  6. No. French Toulon. or Italian Taranto.
  7. Not a bad guess - I reckon she's Brit built though: Turkish/Greek?
  8. Finishing my own wild goose chase around the eastern Med....

    I reckon FS Courbet when she was nav training/gunnery vessel, so Toulon.

    I'll get my anorak
  9. Getting close,getting very close.The Port has been mentioned....
