Barry Harker

Hello Dan.

Thank you for Introducing me to the Forumini Royal Navy Club.
I Look forward to Keeping in touch, and getting involved.
"And many Happy Hours Building,Painting and Battleing with our Models......And Protecting the British Empire and Commonwealth Sealanes and Trade Routes !  Very Happy "

All the best Dan,


I see you worked out how to add your CRN (Club Royal Navy) badge Barry. Good stuff.

As before mentioned we are predominantly an "enthusiast" club, meaning we are not shy to show the forum what side we like to play the most when we play W@S.

The Clubhouse does hold Tournaments and Club Competitions such as the Club & Theatre Leagues, which can be played right here at Forumini's Online Matches subforum, which is a play-by-post arrangement. If this interests you we can teach you how to play online. Its not difficult.

Of course there is no obligation to be involved to that degree if you do not wish to be.

We are just pleased to have you at the forum, your tutorial was superb, and you modelling and painting skills are sublime. There is nothing more I like to do than to yap about painting...its what I do and love. We have 2 things in common in that respect Barry, our passion for painting and our respect for the Royal Navy.

Welcome aboard Barry I shall add you to the roster. Very Happy  Very Happy  Very Happy


Question:  does the Commonwealth Navy include Norway, Poland and Greece for National Club matches?

It should.

A win to report!

Winner:  Hokiepastor (RN)
Opponent:  Bunyan (USN)

This was a game that could have gone the other way with the change of one dice.  Both big BBs got vitalled on the last turn of the game.  If Vanguard hadn't gotten that last dice to hit Bunyan's Iowa, this would have gone to him.  Great game!

Chalk up my first win.

Victor: Vetnor Club RN
Opponent: LCDRSwizzle Club KM

A good game that had me swamped by U-Boats. My Swordfish came through as my most valuable and useful units.

My experience in suppressing subs helped me pull off a win.

My second win. Looks like I'm trying to make up for losing my first game.

Victor: Vetnor Club RN
Opponent: Gibster Club KM

Another interesting match. My biggest mistake was not taking any ships with ASW meaning my Swordfish and Sunderland were overworked trying to keep his subs suppressed.

The game could have gone either way.

No, we are Royal Navy & Commonwealth, this club was formed with the intention of it being a Nation Only based club. There have been many changes over the years to the clubhouse, including the introduction of many "Multi-national" clubs and "Theatre Clubs" being formed to deal with the "we want to play whatever we want" crew. These clubs are available to whoever wants to join them, but this club remains National Based and God willing it will stay that way.

I understand that Greek units served along-side the Royal Navy during World War 2, so did the Polish, so did the Dutch, but then so did the French and Americans too. If we start to do this then we start to look like any other multi-national club out there and lose our own identity. I never even wanted Lend-Lease units such was how Nation Based I wanted this club to be. It was formed as a Royal Navy enthusiasts club as its primary function, very very very secondary to that was playing club matches.

I wonder if some day anyone will actually thank me for keeping the Royal Navy for the Royal Navy....probably not.

Cheers all, good luck with your club matches.


...also Gentlemen, I am sure in relation to Hokiepastor and Vetnor you guys have won more than 1 online match as members of Club Royal Navy. I have added the wins as displayed here to your names on the honour roll guys, and if you require Rank Graphics for your Signatures I shall supply them if you wish. Your ranks are also on display on the honour roll guys, if this is not correct please contact me as soon as possible with the correct number of online wins and I will update accordingly.

Hi Lads,

Just a quickie update of administrative duties:

I have backdated all recorded wins from October 14th 2011, and you will find our Honour Roll is now up to date, so continue to record your victories here and I will see to the Honour Roll.

My sincere congratulations go out to all our members who have won and lost their battles out there on the high seas for our great club. Well done guys you are all winners in my mind. Very Happy  Very Happy  Very Happy  Very Happy  Very Happy

Also I have updated our Members List all the way back to October 14th 2011. A belated welcome aboard goes out to those guys as well. I'll make no apologies as to the upkeep of this club, we have certainly had our fair share of disruption and changing of the guard as it were. On that, I give my heart felt thanks to "All" the guys that have helped to keep our great club alive in the past 4 years. From all the backdated posts I have read I would however like to single out a few guys in particular for this, my heart felt thanks to:

Anrack Fett, who took over the running of CRN in the immediate time when I could no longer take part in proceedings at the Club House and of course here at CRN.

Sublime828 & Firesdstny for their outstanding upkeep of our club answering posts, membership requests and generally manning an all but dead club when nobody was here to man the helm...sincere thanks guys, your outstanding upkeep of The Club House has not gone un-noticed by one of its founding members, and your outstanding contributions to Forumini as a whole can and will never be forgotten. My sincere gratitude and un-wavering respect.

Pilgrimjump, thanks mate for putting your hand up to take the helm of the club in the absence of a figure-head, I would also like to say that as a long time online friend of your father, I was deeply saddened to hear of his passing. As President I will bestow upon his name a special award of Knight of the Order of Saint George, a CRN decoration given only to one that has earned the rank of Admiral of the Fleet. I can think of no better way to honour his dedication to his club, his spirit of friendship and loyalty and indeed the memory of his name. He was the founder of our Club Motto and to him I cheer "Facta non Verba" brother Pilgrim.

SWO Daddy, mate thanks to you also for your amazing contributions to our club have also my gratitude and respect goes out to you for your amazing knowledge and contributions to the Forumini Clubhouse and CRN.

Lastly we have ranks graphics to get sorted as well as our Club Decorations to be awarded to our Members. It is only relevant if you intend to display these graphics on your Sigs, otherwise I will just add your DSO's etc next to your names on the CRN Honour Roll. I will get the graphics sorted as soon as I can.

Thanks Lads...that is all:D  Very Happy  Very Happy


Please see top of page to check your updated ranks and commendations on our Official Honour Roll well done guys we are back on track.

Can't wait to get moved so I can play some online matches, I want to make Captain one of these days. It wily be nice to be an Admiral for CRN, we can always dream.


Is anyone from Club RN interested in representing the UK in the olympic tournament event I am running? , UK and USSR are the only unrepresented groups so just seeing if I can find a couple home grown (national club members) competitors.

I'd be interested, once I understand it a bit better.  Azrael, can you PM me some more details on what's involved, particularly the time commitment?
