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. Hello everyone, was just wondering if you were allowed to have a running watch at Raleigh. One that doubles as a normal one. Don't have a kit list yet so sorry if it states on there. Just been thinking of getting one.

  2. Should I?Shouldn't ? can I resist it?
    I must resist it.
    Ninja do you realise how difficult it is to control my input?:(

  3. Is this a serious post? You're just about to join the armed forces, use an element of common sense!

    Yes take a normal everyday watch, and don't walk into the gates looking like this guy......

    Strictly Brietling if you are likely to be Aircrew, Rolex Submariners for the "deeps" and anyone else either the ubiquitous G-Shock with millions of multi-functions or for the dressier look, a James Bond Omega are the absolute minimum. Military issue G10s are the preserve of Jack Dusties only.

    I bit....
  8. Time Pieces are old hat in Britains modern navy .GPS phones are the fashion accessory of todays Jack & Jackass
  9. Yeah the Middle or long morning </boom>
  10. On a serious note I've got a tag heuer for sale :)

    Also you can wear a watch but during timed exercises the club swingers don't like it
  11. My timepiece of choice, bought in Yuma, Arizona on Det Dec 06

    US Navy Blue Angels Eco Drive. Shop price was $500. Got Military discount, also in the sale and the shop was closing down, a bargain at $230

  20. I've got a £30 timex, blackface, white hands (there's a joke in there somewhere!) and backlight.

    Tells the time and if/when I break/lose it, who cares, just buy another.

    Knackered too many timepieces at sea to get the horn about having the right brand or it looking good.
