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. Cool! Boots you can't kick off and a uniform that makes you blend in if you end up in the oggin!

  2. Seems like a nice boy
  3. Wow! this fellah looks the part. It's got a Navy Logo and all!


    A GI could have hours of fun with those boots.
  4. im confused about the optional 'no shine' boot

    surely if u get the 'shiney' pair and dont clean them!!
  5. The Aussie DPNU uniform isnt so bad now that I have seen this USN version. All we need now is to see the poms new kit.... :w00t:

  6. At least you guys had the good sense to put reflective tape on the rig…
  7. Look at the hands !!

    He must be a turd burglar with hands like that!!!!!!!!!!!!
  8. MMM do there own nails.... must be WE or WAFU
  9. Four letter describe this..........Y.M.C.A
  10. Does anyone else think the navy logo is a rip off from the blue peter one???
  11. on

  12. Nope wrong again. Old spice mate.
  13. You sure i will check when i get home lol
  14. Why do they have two different colours?

    Im confused is this poster for some officer to say "i want this this and this option" for the design? Because other wise you going to never have anyone looking the same with the amazing choice of pockets, colours, colars, t shirts and god knows what else.

    I'll stick with 4's thanks (or 8's as my dad keeps telling me)

    this maybe shore rig only, and not replacing the seagoing kit. When deployed in theatre, and they have as many augmentees ashore as we do, they wear a very outdated version of US combats. The USN people I was working with last year were talking about this, as the USAF had just produced their version.

    Do you mean to say, I hear you ask, that the US Army, USMC, USN and USAF all have their own version of combats, and that they don't all wear the same like we do? You betcha they do - they turn inter service rivalry into an art form....

    Silver, what would be the point of wearing blue camo kit ashore? Leave alone the idiocy of wearing it on board. I can only assume some Congressman got this through for a clothing mfr in exchange for a vote on something WGB wanted. This kit makes no sense whatever, it's just walting.

    as for walting - well where do you start with the US armed forces......
