RN return to Gulf

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 cant find it, what was it about?
     
  2. The Link doesnt work :(
     
  3. Jolly Jack is back in the Shatt al-Arab.

    Ipods are banned.

    White flags in the ready use locker.

    Fat Jennies can no longer be Cox'n.

    Force protection helicopter has to protect the force; not go away swanning.

    Inside leg measurements are to be passed to the Ayatollahs well in advance so the 'after capture' suits are better fitting.

    AND THE SEPTICS ARE PROVIDING REAL FORCE PROTECTION FOR THE ROYAL NAVY.

    No wonder everyone on ARRSE is in laughing your bollocks off mode. :thumright:

  5. Thanks Bergen and Janner :thumright:
     
  6. Right, so publicly the Navy is blaming the Officers on the dhow who made the right, in my view decision, on the basis that they were outgunned and outnumbered, miles away from support.

    So if it wasn't the equipment, why is the right equipment now being provided, albeit by Americans.

    Nice to see, the British MoD can afford, without US realiance, adequate protection for the British Royal Navy! Who says we aren't underfunded!
     
  7. Cough It is NOT the British Royal Navy, it IS
    THE ROYAL NAVY
     
  8. Fantastic - not only did we embarrass ourselves before, but now we're admitting we can't do our job at all without the help of the USN, and when things get tough we hand directly over to them. Fantastic.
     
  9. God Bless America :w00t:
