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. Kinda reminds me of the week we spent on the INVC a couple of years ago showering and drinking dieso-tainted water.

    We were assured it was safe by the stokers but no-one was smoking right after taking a shower!
  2. Something similar happened tome on a polaroid on patrol, during a fire exercise we all had to don EBS masks, after a few minutes people were dangling unconcious from the pipework or having fits, somebody had turned the wrong valve and we were breathing nitrogen i think rather than air. sorry details are a bit sparse.Cant remember which boat but I was MCC so think it was Revenge. :roll:
  3. Why did they use crab air, when she carries her own helos?
  4. I was thinking the self same think mik
  5. Can vaguely remember the song. Was it CTC and something about a Wardroom Fan?
  6. I wonder if they were using the INM cleared products for the task or some DLO inspired "it will do" stuff?

    Boulmer's QRA Sea Kings are optimised for CASEVACs and there's no knowing what mix of rotary assets were embarked and at what readiness.
  7. If they had Merlins on board, they were probably all U/S!
  8. Correct!

    Knobby Hall a young OD
    Cleaned his suit in CTC
    He hung it in the Mess to dry
    His oppo lay asleep nearby
    And all night long the fumes arose
    And drifted up his oppo's nose.
    When the Shaket's voice was heard
    There was one that did not stir
    Knobby wept and whaled no end
    To think that he'd just killed his best friend.
    The funeral was a grand affair
    The RNBT rep was there.
    So sailors please be ruled (?) by me
    If you clean your suit in CTC
    Always ttake the greatest care
    To hang it in the open air
    But much better if you can
    Hang it by a Wardroom Fan!!!
