To the lads

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. To the lads out in combat, and the ones back home, Merry Christmas!

    And thanks for everything you do for us, keeping us safe and secure.

    Have a "good" one ;)
  2. Seconded.

  3. A-H, that bit in your signature, is it anything to do with the late GREAT Ian Dury ?
  4. Most certainly is Lamri. Driving home the other day and the old boy pulls out this CD, fantastic. Tad before my time, I had never heard of him :oops: but he truely was a utter legend.

    LINKY for your enjoyment :thumright:

  5. Thanks very much for that link A-H, I was lucky enough to hear a lot of his music when growing up :)
    In my eyes, a true genius and a sad loss.
  6. Definitely, I am half way through his biography and, wow, what a guy. He certainly had a good life, well most of the time, and was a musical genius.

    Sad way to go, but at least he knew in advance and was able to "Finish his life, before it finished him". Such a sad loss at 57.

    Sadly, I doubt there will be nobody of his calibre again. I mean who would sing a song like "Spasticus Autisticus," these days?

    "So place your hard-earned peanuts in my tin
    And thank the Creator you're not in the state I'm in
    So long have I been languished on the shelf
    I must give all proceedings to myself"

    Absolute legend.

    Take Care,

  7. Yep

    I had a love affair with Nina

    In the back of my Cortina
    A seasoned-up hyena
    Could not have been more obscener
    She took me to the cleaners
    And other misdemeanours
    But I got right up between her
    Rum and her Ribena...

  8. This article in today's Pompey News should gladden the heart (link).
