Re: Appointment of Second Fleet Commanding Officer (Naval Directive 11FB-03)
As of the date of this Order, by my hand, and by the authority of the Sovereign, Queen of Manticore Elizabeth III, I hereby Appoint Rear Admiral of the Red (Brevet) Tony Lopes to the position of Commanding Officer of the Second Fleet and the Second Naval District with all of the authority and responsibility requisite thereof, effective 28-FEB-11.
As a Numbered Fleet Commander your duties are primarily focused on recruiting in your naval Districts. Your cooperation with the Space Lords is expected and your mentorship of future appointees to the individual task forces will be so as well.
Congratulations Sir and God Speed.
In Honour of the Queen!
Admiral Lord Sir Scott Akers, KCR
First Space Lord
Earl, New Arkhangelsk
