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. Right, that's Billy's dog and Granny's handsome self and I get references to Das Boot (one of the finest films ever made). Any chance anyone else will explain their's?(Already said mine was HMCS Oriole, most beautiful ship I ever got to sail.) No reason other than sheer curiosity. :cat:

  6. Whats long, black, hard, and full of seamen......?
  7. Mine's the logo of the ski resort (La Plagne) I worked in before I joined.
  8. Mines just Terry Butcher, got a bit patriotic during the World Cup! Think it needs changing!
  9. Nah, good one that mate.

    Y'know them Soldier ants in Africa that destroy everything in their path when moving nest, well try to imagine what an alien ant might look like, tis also the name of a skiffle group.
  12. Im pretty sure at least two of those are utter lies.
  13. Because I like to watch Derby County play football.

    Bless me :)
  14. Yep, mine is the cover of Das Boot 'cos I was (am?) a submariner and while on my first boat, the video of Das Boot was played all the time.

    However Val, we do change them sometimes, for example Christmas and Remembrance Day.
  15. OK. Not sure what that was about but I suppose I haven't failed until I draw my final breath and 'when driving around built up areas'.

    Is that better?
  16. Mine is Zippy, because Im loud, always claiming to be right and I am the best at everything (CINCNAGHOME gave me permission to say that last bit).

    The avatar I have for 'Blood' might be considered inappropriate on some of these threads...
