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. Source That 'Newspaper'
  2. When will they ever learn, a high profile task that was working and the Pollies still keep reducing the Navy's assets.

    They are spread so thin now, I guess it will not be the last either.

    I'm sure that this was news (not good) when HMS Cumberland came home last year after a bust and the old man was interviewed. One RFA was to remain on station and equipped with the necessary detachment of helo and RM or USCG to do the actual interdiction, it could do the job.

    Doesn't make it right.
  4. Its stupid - the end result will be in 3 months time there will be a new influx of unchallenged drugs landing on our shores.. then they will plough money into the police force to combat this cack.... seems to me like if they dont give the money to the RN they will have to give the same money to the police force

  5. Surely this is just the sort of tasking the Navy is for now, in the same tradition anti-slavery patrols.
