Re: Clarification of Admiralty House Events vs Fleet Events (Admiralty Order 1803-02)

It is becoming apparent that some confusion exists as to how Admiralty House and Fleet Level events are designated for purposes of earning awards for participation. This Admiralty order is being issued in the hopes that it will clear up this confusion and make the process easier to understand.

Fleet Level Events are designated by the Fleet Commanding Officer and all members who participate in such designated events are eligible to receive the Havenite Operational Service Medal, or their branches equivalent. Please note the award requires participation, not simply attendance at the event. Fleet Commanders are encouraged to designate multiple Fleet level events throughout the year so that every member is given a chance to earn this medal if they desire to do so. It is suggested the fleet level events be designated in areas so that no member needs to travel more than a few hours to participate, possibly even designating one Fleet level event per year in each chapter’s area of operations.

Admiralty House Events are designated by the members of the Royal Council, each Space Lord, and the Senior Military Attaches for the RHN and IAN (each person being able to designate one Admiralty House event per year). The FLA may designate up to three (3) original Admiralty House events per year. Additional Admiralty House events MAY be possible by submitting a request to the FLA for additional events with detailed information as to how and why an event should be an Admiralty House function.

Additionally, each House of Parliament is able to designate one Admiralty House event per fleet each year. Fleet Commanders are able to designate Admiralty House events ONLY for those conventions or events where the Prime Minister (David Weber), or New Mimas (Timothy Zahn), or Leutzen Vale (Eric Flint), or Allegheny-Mellon (Tom Pope) are in attendance.

Space Lords are encouraged to “spread out” their designation of Admiralty House events around their home fleets, even if they are unable to attend the event themselves, so as to maximize the opportunity for members to be able to earn the Havenite War Campaign Medal, or their branches equivalent. Members who participate in Admiralty House events are eligible to receive the Havenite War Campaign Medal, or their branches equivalent.
