Broken Link[edit]

Friends Ambulance Unit - The Story of the F.A.U. in the Second World War 1939-1945. Link is broken

Since the work is referenced by ISBN in the references section anyway, I've removed the broken link. --Ahc 03:33, 19 December 2006 (UTC)

Suggestions for further work[edit]

  • Link specific statements to specific pages in sources.
  • Clarify apostrophe in title
  • The first FAU (1914-1919) is thinly sourced. It doesn't indicate the climate of opinion at the time of the foundation of FAU. It doesn't indicate the divided opinion among war-resisters and conscientious objectors.
  • There might be some use for a mention of the reunions, as the second FAU arose out of a reunion.
  • It would be good to have a section listing notable people associated with the FAU.
  • There should be some mention of the retraining and job placement effort for helping discharged FAU members.
  • The text should indicate that the library guides are online.
  • There should be a "See also" section, linking to other Wikipedia articles.
  • The "Sources" section should be extended, if possible.
  • The article would benefit from additional illustrations.

"It would be good to have a section listing notable people associated with the FAU." I scoured "what links here" and ODNB and have produced a long list, in alpha order. Should it be divided into WWI and WWII? Vernon White . . . Talk 22:41, 1 May 2008 (UTC)
