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. Does anyone know if theres a carrier in Newcastle this weekend or through the week? I caught the back end of the piece on Look North last night so looking for info.
     
  2. I didnt think that carriers could get that far up the Tyne?

    No idea mate, sorry.
     
  3. They normally park up at thr Roayl Quays behind the DFDS Ship

    Carriers can't get that far up, they normally stop down in Wallsend. You're thinking of DD/FFs that stop up at Spillers Quay just down from the Pitcher and Piano and just up from the RMR Unit.

    Just asked my outlaws - nothing see, even on Look North. Lusty has been on Ex with Teeny Weeny Airways off the NE of Scotland, could be she's putting in for a quick bottle of dog.
     
  5. i thaught she did visit newcastle last weekend but i could have been wrong. im sure it was going to dont know wether it happened.
     
  6. Did 24 years in the Andrew & regretably never made it to my Home Town on a pussers ship , would loved to have done it & got my family on board for a few CSBs , mmmmmmm , :wink:
