Wet canteen to club

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. Having been detailed off by a lovely Wren Captain's Secretary to be a joint Chairman with a decorated long-serving Chief Aircrewman to oversee the ending of the Wet Canteen . I died--- I was to take up an overseas appointment in two months time on leaving the navy.
    Two Naval airmen had died within a month or so of each other drinkiing vast amounts of subsidised scrumpy.
    However we managed to end all that.
    The Seahawk " All ranks " Club was born The Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty having seen the success of all-ranks Toch-H and Crabfats Malcolm Clubs decided to give it a go.

    The Skipper at Culdrose at the time wasn't so easily pursuaded however.
    He was of the opinion that anything varying in species should be kept apart.

    Naafi spent a fortune on it and I am led to believe it endured for 30 odd years whence it became a keep-fit centre.

    The dear Chief attempted to entice the Chiefs and PO's to come and sample the bussed-in talent as I did to those other parts of ship.
    Left the RN a few months later so was never aware at how well or bad a venture it had been.
