Improvements[edit]

I believe that this article could be improved by addressing the following:

  • complete service details in the infobox;
  • add in line citations (at least one per paragraph is required for B class);
  • discuss Spence's military career in more detail (when did he enlist in the Militia, what unit did he serve in?);
  • discuss Spence's early life and later life.

Just a few ideas. When these have been added, to have the article re-assessed, please add it to the list at WP:MHA. Hope this helps. Cheers. — AustralianRupert (talk) 08:43, 31 May 2009 (UTC)

I haven't been able to locate any details about when Alexander Spence passed away. Given that he was born in 1906, he would be over 100 now if he were still alive, which is unlikely, I think, but not impossible. Can anyone help shed light on this? — AustralianRupert (talk) 23:12, 1 June 2009 (UTC)
