Pennsy-class article[edit]

I saw your recent edits to this article and have partially reverted some of them. The infobox is supposed to be a concise summary of the information in the description paragraph in the main body, you've added a lot of detail relating to the ship's refits. This needs to be removed and rewritten so it fits in the main body, which currently lacks much information on the ships' refits. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions about all of this.--Sturmvogel 66 (talk) 21:21, 15 September 2013 (UTC)

I don't know if you're watching my talk page (click on the hollow star at the top of the page to do so), but I've replied to your message there.--Sturmvogel 66 (talk) 21:55, 15 September 2013 (UTC)

Welcome to MILHIST[edit]


Hey, I appreciate your efforts to help make the Mahan-class destroyer article a better one. And, of course, I appreciate your kind words. I’d suggest wikiproject ships and DANFS. Friedman’s publication is an excellent one, but it’s primarily for design history. If you plan to bring a destroyer article up to speed, a ships general history is important in the scheme of things. So an additional source or sources of reference might be helpful. Happy New Year! Pendright (talk) 16:49, 1 January 2014 (UTC)

New London, Connecticut[edit]

Thanks for your interesting addition about military installations in New London. Just wondering if you could add a few references for your edit. Thanks. Magnolia677 (talk) 19:29, 13 March 2014 (UTC)

Disappearing carriage Bethlehem Steel pamphlet[edit]

Thanks. I'd been trying to find a worthwhile copy of that for a while; I even started scanning an ILL copy from the West Point library, before it became obvious I'd have to break the binding to continue. If memory serves, either CDSG or the Brit Fortress Study Group had some pictures of the rail-mounted, tunnel-sheltered disappearing guns at Ft. de Dailly; have you ever run across them? BTW, whaddaya make of the DG article as it stands now? When I ran across it a few months ago, it had a Kiwicentric look; a lot of the (mis?)info was based on installations in New Zealand.Anmccaff (talk) 22:46, 26 January 2015 (UTC)

Coast Artillery articles[edit]

I noticed that you wrote 16-inch gun M1895. I'm working on US Coast Artillery gun articles myself. I expanded 8-inch M1888 to include the disappearing version of the gun, and I worked on 16"/50 caliber M1919 gun and 16"/50 caliber Mark 2 gun. I'm planning to expand 12-inch Gun M1895 to include the other types of Coast Artillery 12" guns, and to make a new article about the 10" guns. Does this conflict with anything you're planning to do?

That was just a one off I created hopefully to get to DYK. No plans to interfere with any artillery articles -- Esemono (talk) 23:16, 11 February 2015 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for March 23[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited QF 6 inch /40 naval gun, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Georgia (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.
