Please tell me who decided to call this website RumRation...Tot died in 1971 that's 35 years ago and a lot of users of the site have no idea what it was like to have a tot each day whether neaters or 2 in 1 for the ratings........or is this an intolerably cheeky lower deck lawyer question...OK guys I have duly ducked before missiles are fired.... :)

There you go shippers,the name has stimulated a debate.What better reason for a name such as RumRation?What would you suggest as a name??
 
The last Tot was served on 31st july 1970,what finer name could it be, Jack the Lad? Though they dont seem to exist in todays Navy.what would the new Sailors like ?The Chavs?

We still talk about a "liberty boat"... which is in fact a coach!

MEM's are still "stokers" but there hasn't been any "stoking" to do for years...

And when was the last time ships actually had real mainbraces to splice!

It's the silly old sayings that make the Andrew what it is :lol:
 
I like the name, gives me a warm fuzzy feeling inside ( bit like rum), the SCC have a tradition of handing out a tot of rum before we go out on our remembrance parade and before the RNI so in a way although not totally like a tot a day it still lives on.

Must just be a local thing then!

I assumed as I went round the district it must be a SCC thing as all of them did it, I stand corrected, we just must be a district of piss heads as they even get vodka in for those who don't like rum!
