largest[edit]

I heard somewhere that Devon Island is the world's largest uninhabited island. Is this true? if so, should it be mentioned in the article? Masterhatch (talk) 20:57, 14 June 2008 (UTC)

The name[edit]

Why "Devon Island" ? Ghmyrtle (talk) 09:10, 5 July 2010 (UTC)

Probably Devonshire. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.112.183.113 (talk) 23:27, 12 December 2011 (UTC)

Most northerly cemetary[edit]

Patently false. Longyearbyen is further north. Devon is only 75 degrees north. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.112.183.113 (talk) 23:32, 12 December 2011 (UTC)
