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. Getting smokey in here, I served on Southampton twice and enjoyed both drafts!

    I shut down the last engine on the Sucmmer, and brought the stbd shaft to a stop on July 31st 2008.

  3. Nice pics KGV. Always sad to see an 'old ship' leaving for the breakers. Even more so to see pics of one's old "home" being expended as a target, as happened with one of mine.

    Worst 42 I had the mispleasure of serving on, KGV, to be honest. The end was pure farce, the ships complany too hung up on a previous nondescript APT(S) and the machinery and plant fucked beyond belief thanks to shite management and poor 'ownership'.

    I won't mourn it as much as I will Manch, Exeter or Newcastle to be honest.
