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. hi is ther anyone that can tell me a bit about being a submariner to give me an idea what the job is like and how they feel about being on a submarine ???
     
  2. Being on a submarine is fine, which particular branch are you interested in?
     
  3. Speaking of which.... watching a top filim right now on C4 about a submarine in ww2. But why paint 'em pink..??? :D
     
  4. well i am having a good think about it and i cant choose between being a chef, a seaman specialist or a supply chain logistician.
     
  5. Oddly enough, it seems to have started with Mountbatten:

    Mountbatten Pink
    Submarine Camouflage Schemes
    Underwater, reddish shades rapidly lose their colour and meld in with the background more easily. Special Forces vehicles used in the desert have often been painted pink, too: Mobility Troop - SAS Land Rovers

  7. yes i have done three years of cooking at school and two years at collage.
     
  8. The thing is I am having second thoughts about it. So i was really concidering the supply chain logistician. :!: :)
     
  9. Be a chef. Everyone is 'nice' to the cookie boys. Except when it comes ot Uckers of course.
     
  10. Simliar to me; I did Hungarian and textiles. :wink:
     
  11.  
  12. I know but I am sort of having a problem deciding but thanks I opreciate your opinion. :wav: :eek:ccasion5:
     
  13. I guessed that but I got a devilish kick out of playing it straight and demonstrating that truth is sometimes stranger than fiction. :)
     
  14. Stick with what you know best Connor, you will get an excellent trade,good advancement opportunities and a more varied scope of employment on release from your naval commitments.
