Criteria[edit]

  • It is reasonably well written.
    a (prose): b (MoS):
    • "Upon formation the battalion adopted the territorial title of the "Prahran/Footscray Regiment" and they were assigned to the 6th Brigade, 4th Division...", consider "Upon formation the battalion adopted the territorial title of the "Prahran/Footscray Regiment" and was assigned to the 6th Brigade, 4th Division."
    • "The Japanese position sat atop a 600 feet (180 m) hill...", "600 feet" is used as an adjective here so it should be "600-foot". This can be done by using the adj=on parameter in the {{convert}} template.
    • "and machine gun and mortar fire...", specifically "machine gun" should be hypthenated per the Macquirie dictionary (i.e. "machine-gun").
    • "an outflanking move...", would this read better as "a flanking move"?
    • "machine gun" here too: "came under intense machine gun fire as they attempted to round Mount Sugi..."
    • wording here seems a little problematic: "but after two hours they too came under intense machine gun fire as they attempted to round Mount Sugi and attack the Japanese from the rear, forcing it to dig-in to the north of Bacon Hill." Consider "but after two hours they too came under intense machine-gun fire as they attempted to round Mount Sugi and attack the Japanese from the rear, forcing them to dig-in to the north of Bacon Hill."
    • "At this point the situation for the attackers became quite desperate...", consider "At this point the situation became desperate for the attackers..."
  • It is factually accurate and verifiable.
    a (references): b (citations to reliable sources): c (OR):
    • All main points are supported by inline citations using WP:RS.
    • Consistent citation style used throughout article.
  • It is broad in its coverage.
    a (major aspects): b (focused):
    • Coverage seems sufficient.
  • It follows the neutral point of view policy.
    a (fair representation): b (all significant views):
    • No issues detected with POV.
  • It is stable.
    No edit wars etc.:
    • No issues here either.
  • It contains images, where possible, to illustrate the topic.
    a (tagged and captioned): b (Is illustrated with appropriate images): c (non-free images have fair use rationales): d public domain pictures appropriately demonstrate why they are public domain:
    • All images appear to be PD and are appropriate for the article.
  • Overall:
    a Pass/Fail:
    • A couple of minor points re wording. Otherwise this is succint and well-written article which meets all of the GA criteria in my opinion. Happy to promote once the last few points have been dealt with / discussed. Anotherclown (talk) 12:58, 22 October 2011 (UTC)
