Re: Awards - HMS Unconquered - UPDATED (Admiralty Order 1511-04)


As of the publication of this Admiralty Order, the following changes are implemented to the following Awards:

HMS Unconquered Crew

Issued in recognition of outstanding service to the RMN or RMMC.

Honorees will be assigned to the crew of the HMS Unconquered in orbit around Manticore. While only a ceremonial post, it is a great honor to be selected to serve as crew for this honored and distinguished vessel. Crew members of HMS Unconquered can be of any rank and are assigned as permanent crew for this honored vessel. They can choose to have this duty station reflected on their ID Card instead of their normal Chapter. HMS Unconquered Crew are also entitled to wear the HMS Unconquered horseshoe above their ship/duty station patch on their uniforms.

Nomination to the Crew of the HMS Unconquered shall be by your Commanding Officer or above only. The nomination must demonstrate a high quality and level of service to the Organization as a whole. Just performing your normal Chapter duties would not qualify you for this award.

The RMMC Commandant names RMMC members to the crew of the HMS Unconquered.
