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:

    Note LMG's firing in the background.

    As you can see, i was partaking of "Background Activities". These mainly consisted of smoking and freezing to death.

  19. It must be Bootneck gear because it can't be Army kit. If you look in the top, right quarter there appears some sort of dhoby kit (next to the make-up set).
