Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

  1. Today, Sunday 12th July saw crowds once again turn out in their thousands to welcome the RM Band back to Deal.
    Lead by Lt Col Nick Grace, OBE RM, HM Royal Marines Band Portsmouth gave their annual concert on Walmer Green, followed by the rededication of the Deal Memorial Band Stand in remembrance of the 11 RM Musicians killed by an IRA bomb in Deal, Kent, in 1989. 21 more Marines were seriously wounded on that fateful day.
    Lest We Forget.
