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. Thnaks Soleil, brought back some good memories there.

    I don't recall my ship being open then, I think we'd hadn't long arrived from Belfast having commissioned in June that year (Cherry B F75) and were still getting ready.

    :)
     
  2. There's a glimpse of HMS Hermes in this clip (might interest any members who served on her).
     
  3. Where are you in that sol? :wink:

    :lol:
     
  5. Bloody hell, HMS Blake. Now that brings back memories. She and HMS Tiger were coming to the end of their time when I joined, but I always marvelled at them. I served with a few oppos who had served on one or the other, and they all spoke fondly of them.
     
  6. Funny you should say that.....most comments I had about those drafts during my time in the Andrew (64 - 74) was that they were bloody awful... :eek: 8)
     
  7. I was there Just confirmed it with my mother. She still has the pics somewhere, I was a cute little 4 year old at the time. I'm sure there is a picture of me sitting on a Carronade.
