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. Before joining up - I did a bit of time as a deck-ape on a trawler
    working out of Hull. Researching this for a story I wanted to do -
    found this site. I know its not Naval History but it deserves a mention.
    The use of armed trawlers during WWI/WWII gets a mention.
  2. A bit like old age Billy.....not for the faint hearted :thumright:

    VVG series on Scots trawlermen on TV a few months back.
  4. Saw it - brilliiant. They do earn they're cash. Highly dangerous too.
  5. Try "Deadliest Catch" on either Ch4 or 5, about Crab fishermen on the Barings Sea. Not my idea of a cushy number. They do earn their money.
  6. Went to Grimsby, North Shields & a lot of the Scottish fishing ports, and was treated like royalty on EXMOUTH FPS 1965-66: those boys deserved every penny they earned, and more. Have watched "Deadliest Catch" in the Behring Sea and "Deadliest Catch - Lobstermen" about fishing on the Georges Bank off NE USA/Canada - wouldn't have their job for all the crumpet in Kowloon - or maybe some of it??
