Re: Command Composition - Updated (Admiralty Order 1011-01)

This Admiralty Order officially replaces 0712-02.

This is a list, by Type, of the composition of the various Commands in the RMN, RMMC and RMA for RP, and also the Actual Fan Club minimums. These minimums will be the minimum number of crew for a Chapter and also for the formation of the larger Command

What this means is that by the time it reaches the Senior Command Level, a Fleet Admiral is responsible for at least 2106 people, and a Marshall is responsible for 3072. This is a goal we should strive for, but one which will likely be hard to reach. Initially, therefore, larger formations will be on a case by case basis, and likely geographically. As an example, 4 Fleets/Corps/Army Groups (Eastern North America, Western North America, Europe & Africa and South America, Australia & Asia). Each of those then sub-divided by 2.

Now, as a benefit, Marines, as they are usually ship borne, are counted toward your crew requirements. This would mean that if you have 10 people, and of those you have 2 RMN Officers, 1 RMMC Officer, 3 RMN Enlisted and 4 Marine Enlisted, you qualify for a Destroyer (DD) as opposed to a LAC. This will help in forming Chapters. Army Units, being mainly ground based, do count toward a Chapters over-all compliment, but do not count toward the minimum requirements. For example, if you have 1 RMN Officer, 1 RMMC Officer, 3 RMA Officers, 2 RMN Enlisted, 1 RMMC Enlisted and 7 RMA Enlisted, you have the crew compliment of a Light Cruiser (CL) but only the requirements for a LAC, which would be your assigned ship. This does not mean that you could not remain a LAC even if you had enough required crew to move up to the next level, as Chapter Type is discretionary, up to a point as it is our goal to slowly build the larger units. As an example, in an area that has 1 LAC and 1 Destroyer (DD), we would likely make the next ship a Destroyer (DD) to form a Destroyer Division (DesDiv).

A Pinnace, once formed has 12 months to increase its membership to the size of a LAC. If they have not accomplished this in 12 months, an automatic 6 month extension will be granted. After this, they may apply for two more 6 month extensions on an as needed basis. Geography will play a part in ability to get crews, so we accept that in some cases, a full 30 months may be needed.

In Honour of the Queen!
