Order Text

To: All Officers and Enlisted in the Royal Manticoran Marine Corps
From: Marshal of the Corps Sean Niemeyer, Commandant of the RMMC
Re: RMMC Echelon Breakdown (Corps Directive 02-1208)

As of the date of this Order, by my hand, and by the authority of the Sovereign, Queen of Manticore Elizabeth III, I hereby institute the Echelon Breakdown. Please note that this order supersedes AO 1102-13 with regards to the breakdown of RMMC units and Corps Directive 02-1206.

RMMC Echelon Breakdown
Below is a chart which illustrates the breakdown, by echelon, of the Royal Manticoran Marine Corps. The first column of the chart lists the echelons of the RMMC from the smallest to largest unit. The second column illustrates the breakdown per echelon for role-playing. That is these numbers should be used for stories and detail out the RMMC if the RMMC of the Honorverse actually existed. The third column illustrates the breakdown per echelon for the fan club The Royal Manticoran Navy: The Official Honor Harrington Fan Association, Inc. These are the numbers that the fan organization and consequently the RMMC will use to divide the organization by.

The numbers below are a generalization and simplification of what an actual breakdown of the echelons would be. For instance not listed are the various staff members that would be attached to the various units. Those have not been because they would needlessly complicate this chart. Units in the RMMC that are of Company size or larger may have staffs, but those are at the discretion of the commanding officer. All effort should be made to minimize the size of the staff and any staff should be proportional to the size of the unit.

Notes

  1. The text as published officially at TRMN.org designates this order as 02-1206 in the subject line of the order. However, the index on TRMN.org designates it as 02-1208, and the text of the order itself refers to 02-1206 in the sense of a separate order. Therefore, the subject line of this order as reproduced here has been altered to be in accordance with the index on TRMN.org.
  2. The text as published officially at TRMN.org indicates a rifle platoon's strength is 44 overall then notes 44 enlisted, 1 officer. In order to be consistent with the numbers for a rifle company (3 platoons) as well as the composition given, the overall strength should be 45, and the text of the order has been amended here accordingly. This correction will be verified with the issuing authority.
