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. Could someone please guide me in the right directon as i cant seem to find a copy of this book by john douglas . I read HMS Ganges and there was an article about it in there but i dont know where to get it from can anybody shine a light?
    I have tried the plymouth library which has loads of naval books (obviously) but i still cant find it :thanks: :banghead: :dontknow:

    The National Maritime Museum's Caird Library (well worth a visit if you're in London) has a copy. Your local library should be able to borrow a copy from the British Library.

    Sadly it is out of print.

  4. It was a popular book but published by John Douglas who died last December. Perhaps his son will facilitate a future re-publication, but then again, the numbers of ex-Ganges boys is on the wane and the number of interested other parties somewhat limited.
