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. "Trade unions and politicians wanted BAE Systems’ city base to be awarded the contract for the upkeep of Type 23 Frigates and six Type 45 destroyers.

    But Philip Dunne, the government’s minister for defence equipment, has told Portsmouth MP Mike Hancock that the ‘majority’ of major frigate repair work will be done at Plymouth’s Devonport Royal Dockyard."

  2. Yer man Hancock would be better occupied arguing for more DD/FFs in the Fleet.

    A good show of solidarity with Brother Janner, then.

    Would there not be economies in placing all the T45 work in one yard, even if the frigates go down West?
