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. Cecilia Jimenez, the 80-year-old woman who inadvertently ruined a 19th-century fresco of Jesus, says she had the priest's permission to carry out the work.
    The damage done to the hundred-year-old fresco ‘Ecce Homo’ by Elias Garcia Martinez at the Santuario de Misericodia church in Borja can be seen in the pair of images.
    "Everyone who came into the church could see me as I was painting," Jimenez said. "I didn't do anything secretly. The priest knew. How could I do something like this without permission?"
