Our favourite photos of 2007

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. One photo from each member. It could be one of your own or one drawn from the news or any other media. It could be something funny, something serious, something personal, or whatever. Please feel free to give a brief reason for your choice. Once pasted please use 'Preview' to make sure it is not so massive that viewers have to over-use the horizontal and vertical scroll bars, as it spoils the enjoyment.

    Here's one to get the ball rolling. It's Royal practising their explosive entry drills in Afghanistan prior to deploying out in the field. Imagine the thrill of going from thunderflashes to this for the very first time!


    Edited to make the intro a little clearer.
  2. I have replaced my previous picture with this one:


    I think it shows rather well just what we service personnel are defending :(

    You should've joined the navy Shaggy: a trained Matelot (well some of them) would've noticed that your starboard forward wheel was missing & the steering wheel may have needed adjusting a bit. I'm sure your starboard headlight needs re-aligning also. Every matelot will religiously check the vehicle before they set off mate, thus minimising the risk.

    Seriously: Hope you're on the mend mate- carry on trashing Mr Blobbs.

  17. Nothing as dramatic as Pongoshaggy's vehicle, but after lots of studying and times when my sanity seemed to be called into question, last year I made FILEX and this year I was promoted to Team Leader. Here is a piccie of the girls during Children in Need - Dress down, Bling Up Day.

    Woman driver I presume, Shaggy :thumright:
  19. The Summer of '07. The City of Hull is underwater and one man
    gets his picture taken. 4 hours with his foot trapped in a makeshift
    drain cover, and everyone said "There was nothing we could do".
