Cat[edit]

Hi, Sbmcmull. I've glad to see you are enthusiastic about Irish-Canadian topics. We need more help in this area. However the Category:Irish Canadians is for WP articles only, not userpages. We have separate user categories for that. Please take yourself out of this cat. Thanks. Kevlar67 07:55, 18 April 2006 (UTC)

Welcome to the Military history WikiProject![edit]

Re: Battle of Restigouche[edit]

Fair enough. Thanks for the clarification. Albrecht 01:12, 6 November 2006 (UTC)

About your specific concerns:

Calling the Oiler players 'Legends' while not giving a similar tag to the Flames leaders,

Then add a descriptor like “leaders”, “greats”, “favourites”, “stars” etc. OR we can agree to drop all such tags because they too easily become POV, and instead mention only measurable things like points, goals, who was the captain, who was the team’s leading scorers, who won MVP and other awards, who has had their number retired, and (in my opinion most important) who is in the Hall of Fame.

or saying the 1986 series win was a 'moral victory', it does a disservice to both the Flames and the rivalry in general.The Oilers won more Cups, but don't forget that almost every time they did so they had to go through the Flames.

I think the way it is written now does put too much emphasis on Cup wins, whereas the article is really supposed to be more about the rivalry between these two specific teams. I think it should mention more in detail the results of their specific playoff meetings, and most important the all time record in both the regular season and playoffs. That being said the number of Cup win is the ultimate marker of success and something important to the fans, so it should be mentioned too. We shouldn’t remove that info, simply add more context by talking about the historical matchups instead.

Really, what you had were two very evenly matched teams where Gretzky was the difference.

That’s one opinion! :-) … Kevlar67 02:47, 2 December 2006 (UTC)

Edit to HMCS Winnipeg (FFH 338)[edit]

I reverted your edit to this article - the honours you mention belong to the previous ship of the same name: HMCS Winnipeg (J337). Tabercil (talk) 02:44, 18 November 2009 (UTC)

AfD HMCS Discovery[edit]

There is an AfD for HMCS Discovery underway. The result of this AfD may have a bearing on the other articles in the List of Canadian Forces Naval Reserve divisions. Since you have an interest in this area, I thought I ought to bring it to your attention and invite your input. --KenWalker | Talk 18:53, 16 January 2010 (UTC)

1(RCAF) Squadron Battle of Britain[edit]

G'Day from New Zealand. 1(RCAF) Squadron fell outside of Article XV provisions; the unit was first formed in 1937 and was sent over to Britain, so I think there is a strong case for Canada being acknowledged as a seperate combatant during the B of B. Cheers Minorhistorian (talk) 00:21, 3 February 2010 (UTC)

Glad to help. It can be all too easy to come to conclusions based on wrong or misleading information or because of insufficient research; I think assuming 1(RCAF) Squadron was an Article XV unit falls into the 'insufficient research' category. I must admit I thought the unit was formed under EATS, until I actually read the evidence. Cheers Minorhistorian (talk) 20:53, 4 February 2010 (UTC)

Canadian Crown copyright[edit]

Leonard Murray and James Prentice[edit]

Hi. I have been building up the Leonard Murray page and adding bits and pieces on the BoA, and have seen your work crop up here and there. Thanks for starting Leonard Murray - it is his page that got me started, so I guess I am a convert. I have recently been in touch with the family of Chummy Prentice and I had suggested they consider starting a page on him, so I was very surprised and pleased to see you have done just that. Maybe you are related? In any case, thanks for this. Friendofleonard (talk) 02:40, 20 March 2011 (UTC)

Dominion[edit]

The name of the country was always Canada, which happened to be a Dominion. It would be akin to referring to France as the French Republic, which is technically correct, but superfluous. Naming conventions state to go with the common name, which was as much "Canada" at the time of Riel as it is now. Please don't engage in an edit war unless you can cite Wikipedia policy in support of reversion, or references which suggest that "Dominion of Canada" was used in preference to "Canada" at the time. fishhead64 (talk) 09:33, 5 February 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited Thomas G. Fuller, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Distinguished Service Cross (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Ramped Cargo Lighter[edit]

Dear McMuff, I found you through the Canadian military interests wikipage. Please could you help me or offer me some direction? I have just made a stub article for the Canadian manufactured WW2 landing craft called the "Ramped Cargo Lighter." Please, do you know of a photograph to illustrate it? So you know of what I speak, here are photos of the RCL in civilian use: http://www.thousandislandslife.com/BackIssues/Archive/tabid/393/articleType/ArticleView/articleId/712/The-Army-Landing-Barges-lsquoWolfe-Islander-1rsquo-and-lsquoWolfe-Islander-2rsquo.aspx

Here, the bottom illustration is an RCL in RAF service: http://www.hyperscale.com/images/Matador_SRichards_Page54_01.jpg

There are two illustrations included in Leslie Roberts, Canada and The War at Sea Alvah M. Beatty, Montreal, 1944, but I have no idea about the copyright.

I would also need to learn how to get said illustration from wherever it is onto the page. Any help would be gratefully received, AmesJussellR (talk) 11:17, 2 September 2012 (UTC)
