I have assessed this article as a Start class article as I believe that it fails B class criteria 1 and 2. I believe that it could be improved by addressing the following issues:

  • Referencing: for a successful B class review, an article requires at least one in line citation per paragraph (more if multiple sources are used);
  • Coverage: the article could be improved by including more detail, specifically a list of battle honours that the Regiment holds and current structure;
  • Supporting materials: the article could be improved by the addition of an image, or perhaps a unit colour patch. Yes check.svg Done

Just a couple of ideas. If you would like more in depth comments, please consider submitting the article for peer review. This can be done by going to WP:MHPR. When you feel it is ready for re-assessment, please add it to the list at WP:MHA. Hope this helps. AustralianRupert (talk) 11:40, 26 April 2009 (UTC)

Battle honours[edit]

Can anyone help confirm the battle honours of this regiment?

From the text I assume that they have the following:

  • Boer War: South Africa 1899–1902;
  • World War I: Damascus 1918, Suvla, Sari Bair, Gallipoli 1915–1916, Romani, Egypt 1915–1917, Gaza–Beersheba, El Mughar, Nebi Samwill, Jerusalem, Jordan (Es Salt), Megiddo, Sharon, Palestine 1917–1918. (12th Light Horse Regiment - see [1])

But what battle honours did the 16th have? The article says that they received battle honours from the Middle East campaign but does not specify exactly which ones. I think that the regiment guidon only carries a couple (maybe four or five) but only have this photo to go by and its quality is so bad that it is impossible to read.[2]

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Perhaps someone currently serving with the Regiment would be able to assist? Cheers. AustralianRupert (talk) 12:00, 26 April 2009 (UTC)
