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. Chaps,

    short intro, I'm a pongo (taking cover!)

    I need from you sea dog types some good old fashioned Navy slang I can throw at my new boss, he is the king of slang (or so he thinks) but only does booty slang, of which I know non?

    standing by.


    Mods if this is a repost then sorry!

    For old-style 1950s/60s slang try 'A Sea Grammar' on RRPedia.
  3. If you don't mind spending a few quid, buy (from Amazon) a book called "Jackspeak" by Surgeon Captain Rick Jolly. A portion of the profits goes to Navy charities and the book also has some great cartoons by Tugg.
