Edits[edit]

I've added some details, and links to the "Squadron..." and "Action..." pages. I've also put sections in, to match other ship pages. Hope that's OK. Xyl 54 (talk) 15:57, 9 January 2009 (UTC)

Death toll[edit]

Though sourced, is the claim of 48 casualties really believable? See here. Though acknowledging in the region of 1,400 men died, the numbers added up from the three good articles on the ships sunk amount to only just over 1,100 men. Other sources mentioned suggest closer to 375 men died from the Hogue. Benea (talk) 15:46, 14 October 2014 (UTC)

Silverstone is the source for the data in all three articles, but the math doesn't add up. Feel free to replace the data if you can find a source that meets WP:RS. BTW, First World War isn't specifically BritEng so there was no need to change it.--Sturmvogel 66 (talk) 16:06, 14 October 2014 (UTC)
