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'm doing a project about the naval dockyard in rosyth. anyone got any memories/thoughts about the base prior to it closing in the 90's.

    Other info ie ships based there etc would also be useful

    It was cold. Does that help? :?
  3. It's still open but desolate (very small ship's company) & the surrounding grounds are now housing estates.

    The old "factory" (tiff school) now a car park / sea cadet drill shed.

    A few decommissioned boats in the dockyard. Still used by the odd ship in refit.
  4. The other day I found a laminated 'radiation leakage' advice card stating the actions to follow in the 'unlikely' event of a radiation leak by a boat up there.

    I think it was issued to all drafted there.

    PM address and you can have it

    Sure you can trawl these pages somewhere for more info, I know I posted somewhere..!

    I remember fking 'bright eyes' was in the charts when I was there...!
