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:

    Hi lads,

    Just recently made a facts page about military / navy diving here:

    Please let me know what you think :)

    There must be a few grizzled clearance divers out there ;)

    Thanks for your time

    Nice page. I can't comment on the detail but I like it.

    You could do with giving it a quick reread through. There's a few cases of duplicate words, hanging sentences, and incorrect grammar. As above, I can't comment on content, but the layout is quite pleasing.

    "Military divers are by their very nature a very different breed to their land-based brethren, they tend to be rough, tough and hard as nails! It is no surprise that the training regimes in place for producing such combat divers is any different!"

    Seriously? Get to fcuk. Divers are fanny's.

    -No references
    -Re-worded wikipedia
    -Stating as fact very dubious and impossible to clarify conjecture about the use and sale of weapon systems.

    ''SBS only take on volunteers who are already Royal Marine Commandos.''

    SBS dont just recruit from marines as the site stated, its tri service meaning all three services can have ago at it.

    Pretty much the mixed feedback I expected.
    Thanks for your comments, especially from the grammer nazi cat and spi helm.

    This was written partially from wikipedia as a reference, but also from the hip and heart, as it shows. But the pages hearts in the right place :)

    Thanks for that daffy.

    Previously (going off a published story from an old boy sbs) I'd been told it was only marines they took from.
