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. Some good drafts .... image.jpg :toothy10:

  2. RNAS Nuts Corner sounds like a good draft. :)

    Shame as I would have liked some of those drafts. There are a few we could still hoist the White Ensign for Colours.
    Might upset some pongos and crabs though .

  4. George Best international airport ISC
  5. Said it before.Only Belfast would name an airport after an alcoholic wife beater...:rofl:
  6. RNAY Wroughton not mentioned. 6 Bootnecks 6 Wafus 6 Submariners and a bunch of Fire crew, all victualed at a PMRAFNS Hospital, 2 years of bliss.
  7. Only ever drafted to Lossie, Culdrose, and Arbroath and Brawdy, all good camps really, all had their ups and downs, but full of good memories.
  8. I went there to get some gizzits from DNR, seemed like a cushy draft :)

  9. RNAS Twatt sums it all up rather neatly ;)

  10. Neither is RNAY Fleetlands nor any of the others!

    As an aside, for those with Google Earth, there is a .kml file that can be added which shows the locations of all airfields in the UK since 1914. The numbers are quite an eye opener. If I can find the link I will add it later.

    Edited bit,

    Here id the link, scroll down and you will find the Google Earth download.

  11. Subsistence for up to six months of the year if you were on the display wagons, after I left it went to lodging? allowance and you slept in the wagons.

    In our hanger there was a pile of magazines about 40`X 20` X 12` Called A 1000 Years of Naval History. We reckoned there was about 15 million of them
