Sidemore Station

Jump to navigation Jump to search

Sidemore Station is one of the Stations within The Royal Manticoran Navy: The Official Honor Harrington Fan Association, Inc.. Commanded by CAPTSG Sir Paul McPherson, from his flagship HMS Hawk (CA-428), this Station operates as part of Home Fleet, with its area of operations including the Canadian provinces of Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland and Labrador.


Sidemore Station was established on 10 January, 2017 as part of an initiative to start several proto-stations outside of the continental US, in an effort to grow the organization.[1] Upon establishment, the only vessel assigned to it in its initial iteration was the Falcon-class Destroyer HMS Peregrine. However, this was soon joined by another Destroyer, this one the Wolfhound-class HMS Hellhound (DD-446)[2]; this chapter was soon thereafter upgraded to the Saganami-C-class HMS Hawk.

Sidemore Station was decommissioned on 8 March, 2018, as a result of numerous factors, including the extreme distance between the two chapters.[3]

In 2021, the situation had changed rather significantly: HMS Peregrine recomissioned in Toronto, Ontario as of early October, 2020, putting it within two hours' drive of HMS Hawk. Further, due to the events of 2020, remote activities became the primary method of interaction for the members of most chapters, but especially these two. As a result, Sidemore Station was reinstated so as to aid the administrative tasks in maintaining and growing this connection.[4]
