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. Light Admiralty Grey, actually; to BS381 697 (Colours for Specific Purposes). "Battleship Grey" was BS381 632.

    OK, I was momentarily bored. [​IMG]
  2. I got out of the cold move that day lol
  3. There's two different greys on her. There is a big patch on the Stbd side which is considerably darker.
