The Fourth Fleet comprises of the United Kingdom and Ireland[1] and is one of the numbered fleets within The Royal Manticoran Navy: The Official Honor Harrington Fan Association, Inc.. It is also known as Grayson Home Fleet. It is commanded by VADM Lord Martyn Griffiths, MC, DSO, RM, Steadholder Pittman.

History

Originally Fourth Fleet was synonymous with the Grayson Space Navy, as such it included all Grayson Ships and the commanding officer was always the High Admiral. This ended with Protector’s Order 1704-01 which was issued on the 2nd April 2017. This appointed RADM Martyn Griffiths, Steadholder Pittman as 4th Fleet/GSN Home Fleet commanding officer, breaking the link between this role and the High Admiral. Fourth Fleet's area of Operations was originally the entire Grayson Space Navy this was updated by Admiralty Order 1701-03 which defined it as covering the United Kingdom. Further clarifications issued explained this also covered the Republic of Ireland, as one of the Fourth Fleet ships includes that country in it's area of operations. In addition a grandfather clause was issued to allow units previously assigned to 4th Fleet to remain so if they wished to.

Originally the Fourth Fleet, as the container for all Grayson Space Navy ships, consisted exclusively of correspondence chapters. The distinction between correspondence and meeting chapters was later dropped, and there are Grayson ships of all types today. The first ships were established in Texas, Florida and the UK, eventually spawning more and more chapters around the world.
