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. From the book Sailor in the Air by Vice Admiral Richard Bell Davies VC CB DSO AFC. Returning to Eastchurch, low on fuel. We would look for a hospitable looking country house, where we would land for lunch ,and petrol :wink: The house was Belhus Park , built in Tudor times, where Mrs Stead the owner provided lunch and fuel. He then took her up for a flight. Collecting a barrel of oysters, on another day when, running out of fuel :lol: :lol: :lol:
     
  2. I wonder if he risk-assesed that five times before sending an application for landing clearance to the local council who in turn must ask the environment agency if it would put some squirrels in danger?

    Souns alot like a book I read called Nive Lives about an Irish SAR outfit who had a load of prearranged spots where they would just set down in the countryside near pubs and houses, sounds the life to me!
     
  3. :roll: :roll: Not in 1910 and he being awarded the British Empire Certificate no 90 :wink: flying a Farman :lol: :lol:
