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. I can't find the thread now but someone posted about soldiers being given the use of sports facilities for free in Bury (I think) anyway it suddenly occurred to me that my Grandad who was one of them might not have dashed to take this up being the confirmed booze and fags man he was (or became) ... made me smile ... :thumright:

    Was this it?! :bball:
  4. Ah, G R, they didn't have battle fitness tests (or whatever the brown jobs call them) in those days. Bury is providing a valuable facility to lads on leave in addition to saying thanks.

  8. Look I go out for the day and when I come back I'm being slandered to the roof :threaten:

    Just for that I won't tell you about my date ... :thumright:
  9. Orr; go on. Is he the best yet?
