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. :roll: New ones to me!!! 1 Cacklebeery ie Egg. 2 Spithead Pheasant ie Kipper. 3 Train Smash ie Tinned Pilchards in Tomato Sauce. :wink: corrected spelling mistake :oops: :oops:
  2. I thought it was cackleberry? And Train smash was Pot mess?

    Teddybears ears - Prawn crackers. = that's my favorite.

    ?Cackleberry (negat crackle..). Whistleberries per contra being baked nbeans. Always understood that train smash was tinned tomatoes. Herrings In were always Herrings In. Supplied (like Corned Dog and ship's biscuits) as emergency rations, which had to be rotated to keep in date, so tended to turn up rather regularly. The corned dog was in 56lb tins so rather a problem in a minesweeper to get through a tin in one sititng as it were.
  4. How about shit on a raft alias kidney on fried bread, or babies heads alias tinned steak and kidney pudding.
  5. You all know "shit on a raft",but how about replacing kidneys with grilled tomatos and calling it "miscarriage on a raft".
  6. Perhaps if you'd spent some real time at sea you'd have heard these expressions..... :lol: (Ducks to avoid Scouse's incoming projectile)
  7. Which would no doubt be a dockyard tortoise.
  8. Yes, probably from "Small Ships" on FLJ too.
  9. Politically Incorrect Jewish hand gernades-Pork pies
    Jock salad-Ham and chips
  10. Cheesy, Hammy, Eggies - best ever.

    Skinheads on a raft - Beanz on toast.

    HITS - Herrings in tomato sauce.

    Jap wedding cake - Rice Pudding

    Baby Spew - Sandwich spread

    Babys heads - Steak & Kidney Pudding

  11. Action man pillows = Ravioli.
    Snorkers in fearnought(spelling??) = battered sausage.
    Ballerina Shit = strawberry angle delight
    Monkeys spunk= Semolina
    Mermaids piss = Vinegar

    "Elephants feet" Spam fritters.

    I have always taken it from Egg Banjo where after completion you always find egg yolk down your front and attempt to wipe if off. The wiping motion being akin to playing a Banjo, well thats what my sea dad told me!
