|Re:||Change of Command, Bureau of Ships (BuShips Directive 1701-01)|
By order of the First Lord of the Admiralty, Admiral of the Fleet New Scania as stated within Admiralty Order 1612-07, effective on this date and time, 1 January 2017 at 0000 EST, the undersigned relieves Fleet Admiral of the Red New Mecklenburg and assume command of the Bureau of Ships as the Third Space Lord. On a personal note, this change of command is bittersweet, as the impetus of this order comes by way of the relief of two officers I greatly admire, and as Sir John will bring his best in relief of Fleet Admiral of the Green New Arkhangelsk, I shall endeavor to do likewise within BuShips.
Captain (jg) Sir Christopher Thompson, KDE, MC, OC, SC, NS, CGM, GS, is appointed as Deputy Third Space Lord. For those unaware, Sir Christopher has been serving the Bureau as Chief of Staff and prior to that, as the Director of RMN Shipbuilding. He has proven himself more than capable and extremely worthy of this challenge with the full confidence of myself and Sir John. On my authority and as required by this role, Sir Christopher is hereby promoted to the rank of COMMODORE, RMN, effective immediately. Subsequent to this directive, Sir Christopher is required to submit a Change of Command form to name his successor as Commanding Officer of HMS Valkyrie (SD-355) within ninety days (1 March 2017), to comply with the policy stated within Admiralty Order 1602-02.
In Service to Her Majesty, the Sovereign Queen of the Star Kingdom of Manticore, Elizabeth III,
|Sir Michael D. Garcia, KDE, OC, SC, CGM, GS|
|Rear Admiral of the Red, RMN|
