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. BZ Royal

    Brave man!
     
  2. BZ Royal. A truly brave man amoungst giants.
     
  3. Indeed very brave. But am I alone in thinking just a teeny tiny bit silly as well?!!

    Let hope he gets that medal, alone with the gurkhas who went back for their mate who had been shot.
     
  4. I don't think it's silly. It would be far more silly to have let the bomber kill lots of people IMHO
     
  5. What a man! Well done Royal.

  6. what a legend, brave lad.
     
  7. Well done Royal. Our lads are fantastic.
     
  8. I find that when reading citations for VCs and GCs that there is an element of "a little bit silly" in most of them.

    BZ to this lad.
     
  9. As the mans boss said...
    Maj Cantrill said: "He acted with conspicuous gallantry in the situation and put himself at great peril to get the suicide bomber away from the motorbike.
    So that will be at least the Conspicuous Gallantry Cross then.
    Hoofin' effort.
     
  10. Any rumour in the truth the England Rugby coach might be offering a team place?

    Brill effort :thumright:
     
  11. Well done Royal.
     
  12. Well done that man!!

    Just another day for a Royal Marine like taking a ride on a Apache wing to rescue a fallen comrade. The medals mean nothing! You just do it!
