Untitled[edit]

Can someone explain why the name of the page is Augustine William Shelton Agar, when the article repeatedly cites him as Augustus William Shelton Agar only? Brequinda 19:50, 4 August 2005 (UTC)

The page migrated from the Victoria Cross entry where it was entered as Augustine. Perhaps you could change it and fix the link. I don't know how. Polycarp

Assessment[edit]

Does the last section of the article strike anyone as perhaps a bit oddly worded? Alastairward 14:30, 19 April 2007 (UTC)

Yes, UTC, it was a bit stilted. Hope my changes improved it. Cheers Polycarp

Sinking Petropavlovsk[edit]

This does not affect Agar personally, but Russian written sources don't confirm, that Petropavlovsk was sunk, nor even hit during attack on Kronstadt. Pibwl ←« 20:20, 30 April 2007 (UTC)

The Bends?[edit]

The article states Agar suffered from the bends after swimming to the suface from his sinking ship, but I thought you could only get the bends when surfacing too quickly after breathing compressed air. Does anyone know for sure? SkipSmith (talk) 09:45, 5 December 2008 (UTC)
