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. Wow, proper gash journalism there.

    On reading the article it actually appears that the student never even saw a nuclear submarine let alone stayed on one.

    Oh and fnaaar fnaaar:

    The mind boggles at how some of these newspaper types can hold down jobs.
  2. Gosportonians will be alarmed that HMS SULTAN, which masquerades as a shore establishment, is actually a nuclear-powered submarine.
  3. ......and what about poor Royal? He will be even more alarmed to learn that:

    <<The course for 13 to 14 year-olds took place in Gosport, where the Royal Navy trains it marines and nuclear engineers.>>

    Especially when the organisers of this jaunt are the 'Smallpiece Trust'.

    Does that mean I was entitled to sea going pay when I was on Mechs course?

    Ah yes, HMS SULTAN - the very last of the S Boats............ :lol:
  6. Alas the quality of the local newspapers in this are is sadly lacking. As to HMS Sultan............Swear to god I just saw it floating down the coast before submerging ...... might have been the lack of sleep making me hallucinate though but surely the Paper wouldnt get such things wrong.....
