Rats of Tobruk


Recommended Posts

Here in Melbourne I created my 2009 Rats of Tobruk Project (my National ROT Database and my ROT Tribute Website, which currently has (Aust Army Rats 14,041, RAAF 27, RAN 1052, UK Army 101, RAF 4, RN 24 & Polish 172 Rats ) Located, Verified and Recorded. The UK and Polish Rats came to Australia after the War ended.

This is the Original and Only Rats of Tobruk Tribute Site in the World, to the best of my knowledge.

Anyone who is interested can also view my ROT Public FB Group, which is for those who hold an interest in our Famous Rats of Tobruk, both Family Members or Otherwise.

( https://www.facebook.com/groups/1731960383776750/ ) Input from Countries involved with the Siege of Tobruk are invited to participate in the conversations of this Group.

I am Proud to say my Uncle was a Rat of Tobruk - QX1733 CARLTON, Eric Noel of 2/15 Bn.

Best Regards to all on this great Site.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
