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.  
  2. I don't think much of the author of the articles knowledge, it's not the "crew", it's the ships company, the boats will be based at Faslane, not ported although they could have said base ported. and it says the last 2 boats haven't been named yet, if they phone a friend I think they'll find the names Ajax and Agamemnon on the list. The piccy's are photoshopped anyway as the sun is shining ......pedantic mode off :).
     
  3. Oh no launched by pigpen Sloans missus - the boat is doomed
     
  4. One of the crew is sporting a bomber pin in the photo
     
  5. It's mix and match these days Tre, your not nailed to any class/type of boat anymore with the exception of SWS ratings (and it's ships company FFS!! :) ).
     
  6. What's the mast with speakers and flashing orange light for? Is that for special police type ops: Voice out of the dark "Pull over, you're nicked" kind of thing?
     
  7. That's the grimes light Waspie, when on the roof in the dark lets others know to steer clear as there's a nuclear submarine about. I'd hazard a guess the speakers are just for the commissioning ceremony.
     
  8. I haven't said **** all.

    You been on a DTS?:slow:
     
  9. Waspie is an anagram of Flymo only using different letters...*creeps away in embarrassed fashion*

  11. I was using the wrong code book. You don't use Enid Blyton's 'Five go wild in Thailand' then!!!!!
