Yes the RAN did have a rum ration but was the first Commonwealth country to abolish it in 1921.

A ration of rum a day was standard issue in the Royal Navy until 1970, when concerns over crew members operating machinery under the influence led to the rum ration being abolished.

The recollections about drinking of alcohol on board the Australian ships

There was ration at sea of two very large cans of Fosters beer per day for each of the Petty Officers and above the rest of the crew only got one. But this did not happen every day for reasons when in Vietnam etc

So we ended up with a beer ration day ...when? When the Captain decided we had earnt one

In Submarines the Engineers were entitled to a double beer ration for the conditions they worked under.

Bob, Thanks I'll take you up on the drinks, it's sort of dry around here. I don't care what Travis does with my chicken, perrty worn out anyway. But I would like to have the garter belt and nylons back. Now who ever the bartender is wake up. A round for the house om me. Money in the box "There's a tear in my beer." And happy Fathers day to all.

So thanks to Bob I staggered out of here last night hearing an Irish angle sing "Danny Boy," and I was feeling damn good. That is untill I tried to find the bunker I built over a year an a half ago. Someone stole my bunker and my guide rope. I did find my old card board box back in the alley, so I laid me down and went to sleep dreaming of my lost sexy chicken all perrtied up for me. Life is good.
