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:

    Many of you will have read the review by TheIronDuke on DESERT FIRE, well the book is not bad either! Here is a chance to win a copy of 'Big' Phil's début novel. Entry form is on Survey Monkey and as ever just answer the extremely simple questions correctly and you will have a chance to win.

    The review can be found here: Desert Fire

    The competition will run until Sunday 28th October (or maybe a bit later as I am away from home that weekend). Winners will be announced shortly after this date so if you enter the competition please look out for the email if you are lucky - recently each competition has left one book unclaimed for long periods, in some instances meaning that the prize is reallocated, which is a complete PITA for me and the publishers who donate the prizes.

    More competitions will be run throughout the month of October; next book competition will be for COMMANDO by James Owen (review to come)

    Firstly, I have amended the closing date for the competition - I got the weekends mixed up and am claiming a 'Senior Moment' for this. The closing date for the competition, as stated on the entry form, is 28th October. With a week still to run this should not prove an issue!

    Watch out fore the next competition starting on Monday for COMMANDO by James Owen.

    Reminds me of the wise saying "Better to keep mouth shut and look a fool than open it and confirm the fact!"
