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. The Scots didn't get on the podium.But Northern Ireland represented by a World War Two Field Marshal managed an impressive second place.Will there be questions in the Scottish Assembly :?:
  2. I used to live in Harwick in Union street, next door to the territorial drill hall.

  3. World Bagpipe Championship 2009

    Definition of a Gentleman: 'One who can play the Bagpipes.....but does not.'

    But we English must admire the way the 'Doodlesachs' have always inspired and rallied the British troops - everywhere.

    After all, what can we English offer in their stead? Morris Dancers? :roll:
  4. Fife and drums good sir, fife and drums. :D :wink:
  5. I'll concede there was a time when the dreaded agonybags would put the wind up the fuzzy-wuzzies in foreign parts but I fear they have now lost their potency to shock and awe.Your suggestion of Morris dancers has much to commend it as a full on assault with sticks,hankies and bells a jingling is enough to send any foe heading to the nearest hostelry for cover.Anyhow back to the thread,it would seem our Jockenese neighbours are now struggling to get a decent tune out of their national intrument so we can no longer rely on them to whip up a frenzy of pride,fighting spirit or whatever at any time nevermind the battlefield.
  6. As Burns nicht 2010 approaches, what is the current world record for eating bagpipes in one session?
