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. ...and into the, er, bathtub?

    Just wanted to pop by and say hello folks, my WO applications away, and I'm hoping if all goes well I'll be spending a good amount of time on here.

    Great forum! It's got all the charm of a complete and utter bastard. I'm sure if the real thing is anything like this place, I'll feel right at home. :eek:

    The only sand you'll be seeing will be in egg timers.

    Ah, are you referring to the uncharted "FBR" incident?

    I was chief stoker on the Iron Duck at that time, chasing a pesky submarine what then went 'clang' somewhere off Scotland around this time - endex.

    Ouch. My sympathy if you were one of the guys below.

  14. That was us, you might have been the one that had to escort to us back to Faslavatory. Fladda-chuain was the name of the lump and we were on Perisher. That particular excercise was called "Cocktight". Who the fcuk thinks these names up???

    Yep, we followed you in at a respectable distance in case you weren't telling us about the imminent nuclear meltdown holocaust thingy.

    Damn, I thought I'd typed a 't' instead of an 'f' in the "Name the Exercise" competition in which the prize was to steer the ship to make a submarine crash. Sorry 'bout dat - crap speller.
  16. You did me a favour, stopped us going out the Gulf again for another 6 monther
