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. is it true that certain branches of the navy are issued watches (divers etc) ?? if so does this still happen, what models are they and do they remain navy property or what?
     
  2. aircrewmen were issued with Pulsar watches/ you have to hand all your kit in when you leave as in 74 :thumright:
