Notable recipients[edit]

I've just added a 'notable receivers' section - which I think would be interesting and informative.Malick78 15:01, 10 September 2007 (UTC)

Removed material[edit]

At first I fact-tagged this, but on second thought am removing to here, for anyone to follow up and source it if you can.

World War One heroine Katie Archbold took three bullets to save her regiment, and helped fund the White Feather Association in 1987.

Carlos Hathcock[edit]

suggested edits: silver star wasn't earned for his sniping practices, but for land mine rescue heroism;

he was known to north vietnamese forces as Lông Trắng du Kich "whitefeather sniper".
and on this page <http://www.usmilitariaforum.com/forums/lofiversion/index.php/t85601.html> you can see three newspaper excerpts from 1865, 1917, and 1919 that mention the white feather. 69.121.180.109 (talk) 17:26, 29 September 2011 (UTC)Namangwari

The cyrano section[edit]

As a french person, I am really confused what this is doing on this page. Historically a "Panache" is a "an ornamental tuft (as of feathers) especially on a helmet" (merriam-webster definition). Thus a panache has 0 reason to be white. And then, Cyrano isn't talking about his hat. He is talking about his "dash or flamboyance in style and action" (merriam-webster again). This section is constructed on a misunderstanding of the french original text and should be removed IMO — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2001:620:600:6000:EC7F:F368:F84:F48D (talk) 14:57, 28 May 2013 (UTC)
