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. Anything with Katherin Jenkins in is better, but it's not sadder.

    Haley, well wouldn't know if it's sadder as it's all foreign.
     
  2. Puff the Magic Dragon :crying:
     
  3. Oh no - not another sexist thread :)

    Nutty
     
  7. My sister in law picked that one Nutty for her funeral my brother had never heard it before. "For we may never meet again" brought it all home when it played in the church.
     
  8. Loved Judith Durham - something very sexy about her.
     
  9. SGP is that an 8 track :)
     
  10.  
  11. Judith Durham

    Just for those like me who think she is the best female artiste of all time. :thumright:
     
  12. I'm a big Bruce Springsteen fan, and personally for me, the saddest song is his "Your Missing" from "The Rising" album.

    I picked this for my baby daughter's funeral a couple of years ago. It's very apt, and I can only bring myself to play it every so often.

    You got married on Saturday? Ooh, you kept that quiet... 8O :twisted:

    :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
     
  14. Certainly one of the best.

    I bought a CD of the original Seekers last year.
    "The Carnival is Over" is my favourite track.

    Strewth, I was a teenager when that was first released!
     
  15. Rumor has it that a sailor gave her one after she had one too many post gig beverages in a well known sailors hangout in Sydney in the 70s.
