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. He was my mum's Pin up along with john Wayne.
    I must admit I did like his films, and he as you say was a vet.
  2. Always one of my favourites, and always a gentleman, his nonchalent comments on the 60th anniversary, playing down his actual part in D-Day were typical. Made some cracking films, let's hope one of the main channels does a season of his work.
    RIP Richard Todd.

  3. I like all the films I've seen him in. My grandad spoke highly of him as an officer too.
  4. Excellant actor, old school top notch
  5. Good actor and epitome of an Englishman with the stiff upper lip, both on screen and off. Had a tragic personal life, 2 of his sons committed suicide.
  6. RIP, I thought it was fitting to post news of his passing in the memorial section.
  7. Outstanding actor and gent to boot.

    Always watch his films when on tv.

    RIP sir.

    The man was a legend in my opinion. He was a good soldier and a great actor. Proper old school type.
  9. My Father served with him in 7L.I. Para during the second world war and spoke well of him as an officer and gent. He fortunately outlived my Dad by a few years but he always attended the reunions.
