Re: Nominations for HMS Unconquered Class of 2018 (BuShips Directive 1808-03)


Pursuant to Admiralty Order 1511-04, the Bureau of Ships is pleased to announce that nominations are now open for the HMS Unconquered's Class of 2018. Nominations will be accepted at buships@trmn.org until 2359 PDT (GMT -0700) on 30 September 2018.

Nominations MUST be sent by a Royal Manticoran Naval Commissioned Officer holding the billet of Commanding Officer of a Light Attack Craft, Hyper-Capable Craft, Echelon, Fleet, Bureau, Navy, or Admiralty House.

Eligibility requirements for each nominee include:

  • Nominee must have been a member of The Royal Manticoran Navy: The Official Honor Harrington Fan Association for at least one year.
  • Nominee must be a current or previous member of the Royal Manticoran Naval Branch and have served that branch for at least one year of service; said service to include the entirety of the 2017 calendar year.

Nominees not meeting the above requirements shall be deemed ineligible and dropped from consideration.

Nominees from the Royal Manticoran Marine Corps are handled by the Marshal of the Corps’ Office per AO 1511-04.

Nominees from the Grayson Space Navy are handled by the Office of the High Admiral for the Protector's Own nomination period, to be announced by the High Admiral.

The ideal nominee has made substantive contributions to the Star Kingdom in the shining example of Edward Saganami, himself. Equivalency in TRMN would be sustained, outstanding contributions with a high quality and service to the Organization as a whole.

The ideal nomination will have detailed information about the nominee and his or her specific contributions between the start of his or her membership and 30 June 2018 and should include all dates of each action or contribution worthy of nomination. Nominations may also include letters of concurrent recommendation from other ranking officers that bore witness or were directly affected by those contributions.

The Bureau of Ships Committee for HMS Unconquered shall convene beginning 1 September 2017 to consider nominations received thus far. This committee is made up of the senior officers of the Bureau along with the sitting Annual Commanding Officer of Unconquered. The committee will also include representatives from the Bureau of Personnel to advise the committee. Please be advised that this committee shall render decisions based on the strength of the nomination for each nominee; it is therefore important that the nominations be as detailed as possible to provide said nominee with the best possible chance for selection and induction.

Nominations for the billet of Annual Commanding Officer of HMS Unconquered will not be accepted by this Committee. The selection of the Annual Commanding Officer is reserved for the Third Space Lord per Admiralty Order. Any endorsements or recommendations may be sent directly to the Third Space Lord at the address below.

The Unconquered Class of 2018 and their Annual Commanding Officer shall be announced during the weekend of SphinxCon 2018 in Atlanta. Those inductees in attendance shall be presented with a certificate, while those unable to attend will have their certificates placed in the custody of a representative from their respective fleet.

If you should have any questions or require guidance on nominations, please contact me directly at 3sl@trmn.org. I will be happy to provide that information to you.

In Service to Her Majesty, the Sovereign Queen of the Star Kingdom of Manticore, Elizabeth III,
