Here are some of the most frequently asked questions and answers to them.
Q: Do I have to have read the Honor Harrington books to join?
A: No! While many of our members have read some of the books prior to joining, a good number of our members joined and then started reading. However, if you wish to take exams at one of the academies, reading the series is recommended.
Q: I want to start a chapter. Who should I contact?
Q: I see many members with treecats on their shoulders. Where can I get one?
A: Most of the treecats that our members have were purchased through our supply arm, BuSup. However they have all been purchased and there are no plans to order any more as the licensing for that item has expired and has been transerred to another company in preparation for the Honor Harrington movie.
Q: Do I need a uniform to participate?
A: No. Uniforms are optional. However, if a member wishes to volunteer at one of our recruiting tables there is a minimum dress code. Please see the most current Admiralty Order pertaining to minimum dress codes for that information.
Q: I cannot afford one of the uniforms. Are they required?
A: We have tried to create several different levels of uniforms for the organization which will allow everyone to particiapte. Our uniforms range from the most basic, TRMN T-shirts/Polos and a pair of slacks/jeans, to full cosplay uniforms.However, uniforms are not required to participate. The only time uniforms are required is if one volunteers to man one of our recruiting booths.
Q: I have an idea for a new uniform or uniform item. Whom do I contact?
A: Send your ideas to the head of the division to which they pertain. Please note that tRMN follows Honorverse canon as closely as possible, so not all ideas will be approved.
Q: Why does David not want Kilts as an optional item, vice trousers for highland members?
A: Because they are not Scottish...
-- The kilts or the highlanders?
Most of them are Russian and Ukrainian
So no one in the Star Kingdom follows Scottish cultural traditions.
Q: I noticed you have marksmanship awards. Can I use my real world firearms experience to qualify for those awards?
A: No. Due to liability issues we cannot allow firearms to be used to qualify for any of our marksmanship awards. Our marksmanship awards were not designed to test one's ability on the range, but rather to encourage our members to get together and do something fun.
Q: How to I get a post nomial, peerage, etc...?
A: To receive a post nomial, one needs to have gone above and beyond what is expected of the membership at large. To receive a peerage in the group, one needs to have not only gone above and beyond what is expected of the membership at large, but also the individuals contributions to either tRMN or the Honorverse in general must have been of great significance. The only exception to this is the Order of Queen Elizabeth, which is granted for monetary donations to tRMN.
Q: I want to get the Order of Queen Elizabeth. How do I go about doing that?
A: You can make a monetary donation by using the Order of Queen Elizabeth donation button on this site. For specifics regarding the different levels please see the most current Admiralty Order pertaining to this award.
Q: I noticed not all of the ribbons I need are available for purchase through BuSup. When will they be available?
A: We try to prioratize the stocking of the ribbons depending on how many members have a particular ribbon. We are in the process of getting all the necessary ribbons manufactured. This takes some time to do. So the best thing to do is keep checking the BuSup online store from time to time.
