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. The latest addition to the UK maritime fleet, built in Italy, no wonder the champagne bottle refused to break. Let's hope the superstition does not work with the bad luck etc.

    There was a grinding sound. At last the bottle tumbled down, only to bounce off the hull and dangle, still unbroken. There were groans in the auditorium. A staff member involved in the ceremony swore loudly.

    Seconds later, a man appeared on the deck holding aloft a second bottle of Veuve Clicquot, which he smashed over the side.

  2. Should've tossed a bottle of Newcastle Brown at it - everyone I dropped broke - and from the height of a couple of feet - arms length !!
  3. Since the death of Pavoroti the three tenors is now apparantly only twenty quid
  4. That's an explosive brew though and , appropriately, for the hard-working Geordie ship builders.
