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. I have a Rushton Towed Target, I have had it over 15 years I guess, bought via a aircraft museum shutting down.
    I believe they were used mostly by the Canberra aircraft.
    I am moving away....and customs are NOT going to like this, although I have a letter from Cobham (aircraft refuelling) and they are happy that I have it!
    It needs a new home so, I erm, stuck it on Ebay I am afraid, just now, I was unsure where such an item could find an audience, less that I paid, but someone can appreciate the history, and may have even seen it in action!
    Sorry, if this is not in the right section or I should not have posted it, but you people may know where it should live!
    Thanks, Grant.
  2. Ahh, the old Rushton I remember them from my Canberra days. Not too sure the Long Haired Admiral would like it though :(

    The pathfinder museum at RAF Wyton might like it (Home of the Canberra), not too sure they have a lot of dosh though. But the curator works in the same company as me and can pass his details on.

    Best, G
