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. Yarning with another ex matelot got us talking about overseas RN Establishments of yore. In no particular order, we could remember HMS Tamar, Hong Kong. HMS Terror, Singapore. HMS Highflier, Trincomalee. HMS Jufair, Bahrain. HMS Sheeba, Aden. HMS Afrikander, Simonstown. HMS Malabar, Bermuda. HMS Rooke, Gibraltar. HMS St Angelo and HMS Phoenicia, Malta. How many could we not remember? We ignored Naval Parties, NATO and Tri Service Establishments. How many remember them being divided amongst the three Port Division Drafting Offices? Guzz types may get to Tamar but not Terror which I believe was Pompey - Yes I am that old.
