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. Hi all,

    My Dad Alwyn Rob Roberts. RN FAA 1966-1990 Wessex and Sea King Commando Squadron, has sadly passed away. I am trying to find anyone that knew him. He served in NI and the Falklands and was based at Yeovilton. We are devastated by the news. He loved the RN and was so proud to be a part of it. Helicopters were his life. He finished his career with Westland working as a Tech Author on Merlin 101 and Apaches. If you did know him, his funeral will be on the 12th of April, please contact me for details.
  2. Before my VL time. Sorry to hear the news, hope you get some info matey.
  3. Face Book has a Junglies 'Group' for past & present serving 'Junglies'. Worth a post on there too.

    I will post it on the Veterans group/Aircrewmans group and request it be shared onto the Junglie group if that helps.

  7. Hi, I've reposted on a couple of Junglie sites on fb. Several people said they should know him, given the dates. (As should I) Do you have any pics? Most of us have no working memory and especially not for names!
    Also, could I have better contact details, and possibly place and time of funeral?
    Cheers, Jo Pick
  8. I'm sure you will get some feedback, may I offer condolences.
  9. From Facebook;
