His Royal Navy (HRN) is Baustralia's naval warfare force, responsible for the protection of the waters and for transporting planes and army corps through the water. The first formed service branch, HRN is known as the Senior Service. HRN has always been the strongest force, even though the least practical service by water percentage.

History

The HRN is the most prominent force by strength, and by usage in the Baustralian Conquest. The militia that formed the Baustralian Armed Forces – and subsequently, His Royal Navy – paraded as a naval militia by the order of the Crown. It was formed on 2 July 2017 by John I with Sir John Timpson named the Lord High Admiral. December that year, the Admiralty was dissolved in favour of one commander. Timpson was named Commander His Royal Navy.

In February 2018, the Admiralty was reformed by the Crown, and John was self-appointed as Lord High Admiral. Timpson was named Commander His Majesty's Fleet Baustralia, giving him similar duties as Commander His Royal Navy. He was also named First Sea Lord. In March 2018, an offer was given to Wangatangia to have the Baustralian Armed Forces parent the Wangatang Task Force, effectively forming the Wangatang Fleet division. It was later dissolved when the last Wangatang ship was decommissioned.

His Royal Navy used to have multiple fighting arms, such as the Naval Air Arm, and His Royal Marines. The latter took two forms, one as His Royal Marines, and one more integrated with the navy, the Naval Amphibious Arm.

Structure

The HRN is commanded titularly by the Lord High Admiral – a position held by the Commander in Chief, John I – and professionally by the First Sea Lord and Chief of the Naval Staff – a position held by Admiral Sir Nick Sullivan.

Ranks, rates, and insignia

His Royal Navy ranks, rates and insignia form part of the uniform of His Royal Navy. HRN uniforms are based on the uniforms of the Royal Navy, with the shoulder boards for flag officers based on the Royal Canadian Navy. The Admiral of the Fleet has similar insignia pinned onto the shoulder board as the Royal Navy.

For ratings, the system is based on the RN, adding ordinary rate, with RCN-style insignia. As the RN, ratings from leading rate to ordinary rate, the word 'rating' is replaced by their trade, or rate. Chief petty officers may also use Chief rate.

Unofficially, ship's cats accorded ranks may be known as, in the case of a cat holding the rank of Chief petty officer, chief feline.
