If you are in Wisconsin or the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, please join us. If you are elsewhere, there may be a nearby chapter (see the main TRMN site) or you can start your own and get your own white beret! If you are confused by all this, you can find information about Honor Harrington below.
We are a Task Group of the Royal Manticoran Navy, currently made up of HMS Musashi (BC-775, a Nike-class Battlecruiser), HMS Gawain (DD-480, a Roland-class Destroyer), and HMS Borzoi (DD-438, a Wolfhound-class Destroyer). The RMN is from the Honor Harrington novels by David Weber. (All but the last few can be downloaded for free from the Baen Free Library and the online copy of the CD from a recent hardcover. It is best to start at the beginning, with On Basilisk Station.)
It is also a group of chapters of The Royal Manticoran Navy, the official Honor Harrington fan association. Our first ship, Musashi was commissioned in September 2012. Gawain was commissioned in April 2013, and Borzoi was commissioned in May 2018. We are part of Second (Gryphon) Fleet. Musashi is based in Milwaukee, Gawain in Madison, and Borzoi in River Falls. (You do not need to be near the ships' home base to join - we have far-flung members!) If you think you have what it takes to uphold the honor and tradition of the RMN, please contact our commanding officer, Captain (j.g.) Timothy Bailey, KDE, QBM. If you do not live in the area, there are local chapters country- and world-wide. Please visit the RMN web site for more information. (There are links to some of our sister ships on our links page.)
Membership in The Royal Manticoran Navy is free - no dues. It's funded by donations and by the purchase of items from its Bureau of Supply. You can sign up here. We'd love for you to join Musashi or Gawain!
Gawain has been in a number of the recent novels, including Shadow of Freedom. Information can be found here, although that particular page has not yet been fully updated with Gawain's deeds. Also, here are the specs for the Roland class.
Musashi does not directly appear in the novels, but it is a brand-new ship and is therefore sailing around in the background of the most recent books.
