Training ship with no Flags

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. :oops: :oops: Noticed their was no flags flying on the training ship, moored up the Dart :oops: :oops: Would be a good training excersise for the young Sirs!!! Coulors/ Sunset. Spoilt my tea and sticky buns at Agatha Christies Pad Greenways . Thinking about those untrained Snottys :lol: :lol: :lol: PS ( The training ship moored in the River Dart at Sandquay, currently the former Sandown class minehunter, HMS Cromer, continues to bear the name Hindostan.)
  2. HINDOSTAN is a tender, not a commissioned warship, and as such does not carry out ceremonial.

    Step away from the outrage bus, and hand back the keys.
  3. The Hindostan is a floating classroom in effect, used for Seamanship lessons Damage Control exercises and used in a C2 role during the final leadership exercise MARL. She has no engines, no generators, and relies on shore supplies. As has been correctly stated she is not commissioned and is a training tool.

    The Ceremonies of Colours and Sunset are conducted daily by Officer Cadets, with the 2OOD (Duty Senior OC/YO) enjoying standing still during Colours with a Telescope under the arm, for an indeterminate amount of time.
  4. Is this the ship at jupiter point that replaced Ajax barge?
  5. Negat, that's HMS Brecon (as was)
