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:

  2. There's a perfect one I've seen in a book called "Sailor : A pictorial history", he's even got a parrot in a cage. he's leaving a railway station in London. it was taken in the late 30's.

    dunno where you'd get a copy of the book though, Amazon maybe??
     
  3. An old shipmate of mine has a tattoo of a Matelot, kit bag slung over shoulder walking into the sunset with "Never Again"

    Can't find any images on google like that though
     
  4. Go to: www.corbis.com

    *** Type "British Navy" "Royal Marines" or whatever you want in the Search Box....see what comes up***
     
  5. There are some lovely sailor piccies in that book.... :razz: :) :) ....especially if you're into white duck suits! :lol:
