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. We all have somebody famous from where we was brung up. Let's now try and black cat each other?

    A few ground rules, let's say 5 mile radius, so the cockneys can't claim Liz & Phil etc...

    Here's mine:

    Kevin Ratcliffe (Everton Hero)

    Ian Rush (mate of my Dad ) , Michael Owen (Red Scum)

    Gary Speed (RIP) old school mate and Evertonian.

    Nothing else to do apart from football...

    And some twat from One True Voice, pop stars/x factor fame! (Who Kevin Ratcliffe took to court)
