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. During the Second World War, The Admiralty produced a voluminous, weekly report known as the “ Pink Sheets “. I believe it was some kind of vessel situation document. Does any one know what is exactly on that report and how much detail it contained ? Thank-you !
  2. Have a look at 3. The Navy Lists.

    And after the war. It was known as the Pink List and was a periodic classified list of what was where. I would imagine not so necessary nowadays.
  4. As far as I can remember, the Pink List existed until very recently.

    Always handy for checking before accepting a swop draft.......
  5. Thank-you ! Yes, I was aware of that file and for a one week period in 1944, The KEW quoted me 365 pages of material ! Before laying out big money ( and possibly wasting that $ and time to boot ) to see it, I was hoping someone might have a page showing exactly what is on those slips. I'm pretty sure it is all now de-classified. Trying to come up with a table of organization for destroyer escort groups...
