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:

  2. Bit of de ja with that one.

    Did similar a decade or so ago on Ben Eime! A nice little outcrop called 'the Cobbler' a well known visit for walkers.

    Only for broken ankle I went down to a shattered face, dislodged eye, both arms and legs broken. I spent in excess of five hours on the mountain side with the casualty. The Sea King returned to Glasgow for fuel whilst I was tending the injured chap, fortunately I was joined by a couple of MRT chaps who assisted.

    But well done to this crew, I at least had semi decent weather.
  3. Best Draft(s) in the Mob - Two tours with 819 Gannet SAR Flight. Done a many job in the Highlands - though in my time at Prestwick, that was before we were issued with proper mountain kit - (snow boots/crampons, ice axes etc)
  4. Likewise, 81 to 85 then again 88 to 90.
