TRMN Information

For Donations to The Royal Manticoran Navy: The Official Honor Harrington Fan Association, Inc. via PayPal the benefactor will be inducted into the Most Regal Order of Queen Elizabeth as per the following criteria[2]: Knight (KE) and above entitle the awardee to the prefix 'Sir' or 'Dame.'[3]. Donations may be cumulative over time and your level can increase. The eight awardable classes with post nominal letters are Knight Grand Cross (GCE), Knight Commander (KDE), Knight Companion (KCE), Knight (KE), Companion (CE), Officer (OE), Member (ME), and Medal (EM). For each subsequent award, the member moves up one class. The highest class, Knight Grand Commander (GDE) is reserved for the Monarch and therefore not awarded. This order is not hereditary. For each subsequent award, the member moves up one class.[4]

This order is not hereditary, meaning that the induction of any member into this order is valid only for the lifetime of that member.

It is further stipulated that members who donate to The Royal Manticoran Navy will be recognized with induction into the Order.
