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. this might be in the wrong thread but i dont know where else to put it. for those who watched ross kemp in afgahn you would of seen on the last episode a tragic event that ended the life of a 22year old marine "travis mackin". i want to share this tribute video with you guys on rr to show the life of travis as a young marine. the song in the video is sung and wrote by travis's freind sam bruty. he got two of travis's favriot oasis songs and clashed them together. thanks to andy and sam for making the video.

  11. Hey all

    I made the tribute video for Travis, and I just want to say thanks to Chris for getting it out there. He is a top lad, and if anyone deserves to get into the navy; its him. Good luck mate.

    Due to some unknown reason that link is now inactive, I re-uploaded the video here:
