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. Too many gapped billets :twisted:
  2. Wouldn't mind the gaped billets if they'd been doing something useful like running at Earls Court for the Field Gun Crew.

    I feel sorry for the 15, now having to run the guantlet of JPA trying to find the right button for "leave, due to circumstances beyond your control" and trying to subnit the LOA claim.
  8. Is Alzeheimers taking hold but do I not recall that we were never ON ships, but IN them

    And before any wise arse picks me up.... that was reported speech from the lady wife. Who will be taught the error of her ways.

    A session of "all 4 corners of the garden GO!!" followed by a few laps of the block with a full grip above her head ought to do it. And then she'll get a shake at 0100, I'll give her a pair of binos and one of the kiddies rubber rings and tell her to get to the end of the drive as she has the long Morning as life buoy spook.......

    She'll get the hang of it...
  12. You still have a grip ??

    on reality? tenuous at best.

    Or if you mean the brown Pusser's issue at BRNC - very much so - needs a new zip but otherwise in perfect working orde.
  14. PMSL :lol:
  15. and why not then SFox............ surly you can think of more reasons
    or did you just give in to my wisdom.... :twisted: :twisted: :D :wink:
  16. I noticed during my time in the Mob 1960/1983 that Officers were "in" ships and Jack was "on" ships. :lol:
    Mind you i knew a few Aircrewmen with pretentions who were "in" ships :roll:
  17. ......................and God Bless all who sail IN her.
  18. In or On, the the rule I learned was always IN a ship except HMS AISNE. ON a merchant ship though.
  19. Always thought it depended if you were above or below decks! think about it!!
  20. You definately had to be in boats anyway [S/m's for the uneducated ]
