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. so its got me thinking about how we meet our future wives/husbands....
    I'd love to say my meeting was dead romantic but I'd be lying,
    having known him for several months i blew taboo and went out of branch!!
    uh oh!!
  2. Advert for penpals?? Bottom of link
    Wife was penpal cost 4d (2new pence) 40 years ago.
    Many £1000's since. Still together.
  3. Met my missus at a Whaley Club dance. They said it wouldn't last. Well, 42 years later we are still going strong!!

    Semper Streuissima.
  4. Met mine as a 16 yr old at a housewarming party, tho' we had known each other in earlier childhood, (we used the same shelter during the blitz). Celebrated our 50th anniversary last year.

  5. Which particular other half are you thinking of? I've had four.
  6. well done 2bm- congrats on 50 yrs
  7. Senior Rates mess Gibraltar 1979,first words I said to him "Would you like a drink" he thought"A Jenny who buys the wets can't be all bad" married in 1981 he CTB 7 Feb 2005,had lots of happy years together and have some beautiful memories.
  8. The PO Stoker was my instructor at the Fire School! 11 years later and he is still telling me what to do!
  9. I stalked her.

    I had known her at school and never gave her a second thought.

    A few years later i was waiting for a bus home from work and saw a tasty piece walking towards me. Didnt realise it was her at first. I wasnt sure where she lived but i knew where she caught her bus to work and the road she walked down to get there. So one morning, not knowing what time her bus was, i walked up and down that road for half an hour before she finally tuned up. That night i bought her a jacket spud at the local take away.

    She made me wait until the day after my 18th birthday before we made it official though. Some people will do anything to get out of buying you a present.

    We have two cracking bairns and get wed in August this year.
  10. Met my beloved 21 years ago in Boobs on Union Street - not exactly something I usually advertise!! Class establishment or what!
  11. My DD's dad I met him in the Royal Navy arms in Gus, He was a submariner I was a student................Match made in Hell!!!
  12. During Gulf War 1991, we received sackfuls of mailies from people, (mainly women) wishing us well.

    Being in Defence Watches with a bit of time on our hands, I got the Catering and DHP team to reply to as many as possible, to see what replies we could get. Obviously aiming for photos or parcels.

    In the spirit of competition I joined in, amazing what you can get on a bluey if you print them on a WP.

    Anyway to cut a very long story short we covered the catering office in photos, had lots of ggody parcels, (did not have to buy dhobey gear and smellies for rest of trip :) )

    I carried on writing to one woman and when ship came back to UK we visited Liverpool and she came onboard to see me, we have now been tied up for 11 years and have an 11 year old son, who's a real chip off the old block, (poor Sod)
  13. Met mine at an international socialist yewth camp in holland in 1978. I was 10, she was 7 from Omsk in Siberia. I must have loved her coz I pulled her hair a lot.

    Of course it was practically impossible for us be together, but we managed it. I went to the USSR a lot as a kid, which was okay and during the period of Amerikan nuclear adventurism in europe we'd steal off for little holidays together in egypt, sweden and so on. Non aligned countries, that wouldn't be a problem for us.

    Now we're together properly, having missed out on a lot of time, I suppose a bit like being in the mob and we're back in the UK after living in Russia 1 squealer on the way and its all good. And even after all this tiem I still think she is totally lush.
  14. My sister kept pestering me for months, might have even been over a year or so, to meet her friend and telling her friend that she should meet me. Anyway I broke my ankle playing rugby and so I had some spare time on my hands and stayed at my sisters one weekend.
    On the Sat we went out to look for fabric for blinds for her new house, lo and behold she had 'arranged' :roll: for her friend to meet her there to help choose the fabric. Whilst they were sorting out blind fabric, I was going blind staring at the fabric on her arse :wink: (from a distance). Needless to say it looked so good that we are still together after 5 years, just had our first child and we are looking forward to a lifetime together. :D

    Good ploy fellas, broken ankle for the sympathy vote :lol:

    My wife and sister are still good friends. 8O
  15. Met mine at PTA dinner-dance in Dorking the night before I went back off leave to Rosuth . Five weeks later I came down for a weekend and five weeks after that we were married. Everybody said that it woudn't last. After 38 wonderful years sadly she died.
  16. I was in a bar in Arbroath, I opened my wallet and there she was, still opening wallet and it will be 45 years in April, but we had two wonderful years together, I was on the Eagle at the time. Two children that we don`t mention due to their low life occupation, the Male is a Chief Tiff on Bombers, and the other one is a Policewoman in the North East of Scotland, but there are three beautiful Grandchildren, so there is hope for the future (going now footsteps on the stairs)
  17. My future beloved was an Army driver renting a bedroom off my mum when I met her one Easter Leave period. One chinese takeaway, a bottle of tequila and a few smashed glasses and the rest is history (romance isn't dead is it?)!

    She wasn't in any fit state to drive the Colonel the morning after the night before and spent all day crashed out in MT!! RN 1, Army 0!!

    3 gorgeous kids and 16 years married in August.
