Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

  1. Some Untreasured Couplets on United Kingdom Defence Spending

    "Will you both roam the world for me and mind my door?â€
    Asks Mother Hubbard of her dogs of war.
    She spreads her “Daily Mail†beneath the table
    To snatch each lonely crumb as she is able,
    When – lo - an inside photograph exposes
    A skeleton, a dog, the Mary Rose’s!
    Ask! Did it drown because the ship was faulty?
    Or starve perhaps as victuals were too paltry?
    This insight born of history beside,
    Alas, poor Hatch, ‘the dog it was that died’.
