Jump to navigation Jump to search

The Grayson Space Navy (abbrev: GSN) is a Grand Alliance navy and a branch option for members of The Royal Manticoran Navy: The Official Honor Harrington Fan Association, Inc.. Commanded by Admiral of the Fleet Zachary White, the Grayson Space Navy is one of the larger branches of TRMN. The Grayson Home Fleet from canon is referred to in TRMN as Fourth Fleet and hosts the majority of GSN chapters in the organization. However, there are Grayson ships serving in various fleets around the world, and Grayson personnel serving in the RMN, IAN, and RHN.


The Grayson Space Navy was founded as part of the initial development of (TRMN). At the time the GSN was comprised solely of correspondence chapters. Kit Warren became the first High Admiral and helped found the first correspondence chapters based in Texas and Florida. She also worked with Martyn Griffiths to start the first chapter in Great Britain, the GNS Albion. Eventually, the GSN transitioned away from the correspondence chapter model and is now comprised of traditional chapters all over the world.


The GSN awards decorations and medals based on the canon Grayson awards. See: Table of GSN Awards

Honor Societies

The Grayson Space Navy oporates two honor societies, and individual honor society based out of the historic light cruiser GNS Covington (C3), and a chapter honor society based on the canon Protector's Own Squadron.
