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. What was the No.1 single / No.1 LP (for those among us who survived beyond vinyl) on the date you joined up?

    Mine says: Freda Payne - "Band of Gold" / Simon & Garfunkel "Bridge over troubled water"

    Tap the relevant date into the link below, stand fast those members
    who played 78's on wind-up gramaphones, because it doesn't go that
    far back.
  2. OMG, I should shoot myself:

    No 1 single: Cliff Richard - "We Don't Talk Anymore"
    No 1 Album : Led Zeppelin - "In Through The Out Door"

    Honestly I have better taste in music than that........ :lol:
  3. Apparently mine was Aretha Franklin & George Michael - "I Knew You Were Waiting (For Me)", not that I remember it.
  4. Ebony and Ivory. Apparently. That's not the one I remember, though.
    LP was Barry Manilow - "Barry Live In Britain". Never heard of it, thank God.

    Just missed out on
    Madness - "House of Fun"
    Iron Maiden - "The Number Of The Beast"

    Can I claim these instead?

  6. Four Tops 'Reach out I'll be there' - remember dancing to that at the Naafi at Dauntless!! :dance:
    Original soundtrack - Sound of Music, lost count of the times I went to see that at the cinema! :hiding:
  7. Abba - Waterloo :D Whenever I hear it now I am immediately taken back to the HMAS Leeuwin galley and the worlds largest pile of dirty cooking utensils!
  8. Little Sister - Elvis.
    George Mitchell Singers - Another Black and White Minstrel Show.
    Nah, I'm not THAT old - am I ? Back to the medication, and can you grease my Zimmer bike, please.
  9. There still there Jack ...or so the ex JRs tell me
