Minor Navies Lonely Hearts Club's Band

Thanks for the inspiration K Lorelei!  This could be a great  springboard for those who want to learn more about the role of Minor Navies in Naval history and those who advocate a greater representation of Minor Navies in WAS. Who would be interested and what is involved in making this a special interest club?
Tricki Vic BB71

we need a banner for them. Also what happened to the thread containing all the special interest clubs in War at Sea?
K4 Lorelei

How is it possible to get these banners, and what do they involved?
SWO_Daddy

Gents, Special Interest Clubs have always been pretty loosely defined.  The only one that has any real historical posts in the Clubhouse section is WWTX.  Others, like the IJNCVLF go way back, and exist over in the General Discussions area.

Might be something to talk to ND about.
SeaAngel

Thanks SWO!
SeaAngel

PMed ND and will let ya'll know what his reply is.
Sir_Valentine

Count me in.
SeaAngel

ND says that 5 members are needed and a logo the same size as the other clubs.
SeaAngel

Forum members are allowed 1 National, 1 Theater and 1 Special Interest Club?

Yes.


Thanks SWO for the help.
Sir_Valentine

Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland!!!

Wouldn't that be the Scandinavia Fleet Club?  Laughing
SWO_Daddy

Add Turkey, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, and I'll be in!
SeaAngel

Why exclude them?  
I've quadrupled my knowledge about S. American navies during WW2 just from researching why they should be included.

Yes but there are not enough units to be playable yet.

Do not forget SNARF.

Who or what is SNARF?
K4 Lorelei

SNARF = Sole Navy Allowing to Reel Fries.

It's another name for the Belgian Navy.
SeaAngel

Lol
Buster

Count me in!  Laughing
SeaAngel

Do we have 5 yet?
Tricki Vic BB71

With TP and TN doing good work on IJN aircraft carriers I believe it is good time to change my interest club.

Support minor navies! Count me in.
squint181

Make sure the Turks get some attention.  Need a regional enemy for the Soviets in the Black Sea.

I support all minor navies, mainly because many see the Soviets at the largest minor, not the smallest major.  So as a special interest club, count me in.  But the Soviets will always be my first love.
K4 Lorelei

Count me in also, of course!
SeaAngel

Naturellement,  c'était votre idée.
Natuurlijk,  het was jouw idee.
Natürlich, war es Ihre Idee.
SeaAngel

I think we may have 5.

Is there anyone in the forum with the mad skills to create a logo like the drum on the album cover that won't get us sued for copyright infringement?  Maybe with the flags of the minor navies represented surrounding it or the logo superimposed onto a field of the flags.

We probably need to select a leader and establish our mission statement.

I nominate K 4 Lorelei for Band Leader.

That's a pretty good idea!

Well, that's too much responsabilities for me... And, as Belgian, the risk is that I could be a language-obsessed leader. And I am not sergeant. But do we need a sergeant? I am not sure we can have a major, 'cause we are here to talk about the minors.
SeaAngel

I disagree and my nomination still stands.  Your obvious command of the English pun indicates a high level of intelligence and a low level of humor, which sounds perfect to me!

What responsibility are you shying away from?  It is an online forum about the role of  "Minor Navies" as they relate to WAS, not solving the debt crisis.
K4 Lorelei

All right, SeaAngel, I accept to be candidate. But if I don't have time enough left to solve the debt crisis, it's entirely your fault!

Here is my program for the MNLHCB:
"To defend and to promote
All minor navies troughout the world
From Ecuador to the Poles."
SeaAngel

My point exactly.
SeaAngel

So far:
K Lorelei
Sir_Valentine
SWO
Buster
Squint181
Tricki Vic BB 71
SeaAngel

have responded in the affirmative.  That's more than the required number for starting. Special Interest Club, so I think we are in.

I am waiting to hear from ND about the logo size etc.

The nominations for Band Leader are open with K Lorelei nominated by me.

What about ideas for the logo?

K Lorelei has
SeaAngel

Sorry, K Lorelei has a proposed Mission Statement.

SNARF was a losely based Swedish group a few years back with Cmdr. Clint and a few others.

I Like It!

wow  good job

I like it also, especially with the Czekoslovakian flag...
SeaAngel

The Czech Navy is right up there with Nepal's Navy.  Don't be hating!
Sir_Valentine

Eh?

SeaAngel

Well done!
Sir_Valentine

I'll be you'r huckleberry... Wink
squint181

Don't be hating on the Czech Navy

Presydent Masaryk Class River Monitor



They also had a few fast patrol boats and minelaying launches.  Just saying if we are to champion the little guys, this may be as little as it gets.
K4 Lorelei

Very nice, the Czech Navy ship, but better for War at River than for War at Sea!

May be the Manchukuo flag could be added?
SeaAngel

If the specific flags are going to be a problem, maybe we should get an "official" list going for Sir_Valentine.

Commonwealth Navies to be included?
Excuse my ignorance about these navies roles or lack thereof in WWII (Part of the reason for this club in the first place).

In no order:
Norway
Sweden
Finland
Denmark
Netherlands
Poland
Belgium
Spain
Portugal
Romania
Greece
Turkey
China
Thailand
Mexico
Brazil
Argentina
Chile

Add/subtract ?
K4 Lorelei

Yugoslavia, Bulgaria, Ecuador and Peru.

Commonwealth Navy is included in Club Royal Navy. So, no they are not included in the list.
Sir_Valentine

Once you have the final list let me know....
SeaAngel

I concur with the Commonwealth, Tricki.

Is the list above with the addition of Yugoslavia, Bulgaria, Ecuador, and Peru acceptable to everyone?

I appreciate your patience Sir_V!  Also your hard work.

I appreciate it as well! Thanks!
Sir_Valentine

Its no biggy at all, just about 15 minutes to cut and paste some flags from Wikipedia.  Though if you want a banner we will need more than just this symbol... so think about what you would want addition to it...

I am not painting anything.... sorry to get your hopes up. Wink
SeaAngel

Not even if we say please or "Live Free or Die"?

Die if you want... or don't tread on me... ether way our hard alcohol is a lot cheaper here in New Hampshire since the state is the only one who can sell it.  Not sure how that connects but... eh... I will enjoy my vodka.
SeaAngel

Daughter is Dartmouth 09, loved NH.
Sir_Valentine

Just moved here last year but my family has lived here since 96.
Sir_Valentine

Mark 2.

SeaAngel

Missing some, should be 22 flags, I count 18.
Sir_Valentine

Post the updated list... the dutch are out since there is a club dutch and I missed turkey.

Do we really have to skip the Dutchies? They are welcome! the Netherlands are the main minor, but they remain minor... I don't think the clubs are exclusive.
SeaAngel

Others with opinions about whether or not the Dutch should be included?
NeuralDream

Type MNLH in the Special Cause Club field of your profile.
K4 Lorelei

It works! Thanks!
SeaAngel

Looking good!  Thanks Sir_V!
SeaAngel

We have Logo!

Other nominations for Band Leader?

What about including or excluding the Dutch?
Sir_Valentine

The Dutch are excluded since torpie made their own group.

Your welcome.
K4 Lorelei

Objection your honor. We are a special cause club, not a club dedicated to a nationality, like the IJN Club, the RM Club, or the DN Club.

+1 I am totally joining this, as long as the Dutch are a part of it. The Dutch were definitely a minor nation and this is a special cause club to get minor nations represented.
Sir_Valentine

Opps.
SeaAngel

Looking around the forum I am seeing more members displaying the MNLHCB Logo, wonderful!

I hope to see even more once the new deck is released.

I've also noticed a great deal of interest in Minor Navies in custom card and scenario threads, encouraging!

I'm on too!

Welcome!
SeaAngel

Type MNLH into your special cause club line on your profile and you receive a free cool logo!
SeaAngel

So what do ya'll think about the Minor Navies representation in the Team Neptune deck?  The dutch, greeks, siamese, and romanians got some love but there are so many more out there!

There is great representation in SWO_Daddy's card decks, check them out in Custom Cards.
Phoenix_jz

Did Brazil contribute at all at sea?
I know they had men in Italy. They were the only South American power to actully fight out of those who declared war.
hokiepastor

I'd like to join this special cause club!  Will add the logo in my profile.
SeaAngel

HP,  you the man!

Dear minor navies' fans,

It is time to defend our minor rights!
It is time to defend our minor navies!
It is time to defend our minor ships!
It is time to vote for the cards of the Team Kraken's deck!

So, I beg you to vote "en masse" for the ships of the minor navies! Ships of the big navies will find their way by themselves, but the poor ships of the ridiculous minor navies need your help!

So, rendez-vous at:
