Disruptive editing - changing the names of units fighting the battle[edit]

The names of units used by the official British Historian have been changed without saying where the new names come from. These changes have been hidden under cover of generic rubrics. Here [1] under cover of the rubric "‪Adding/removing wikilink(s) Copyedit (minor)‬)" The the 24/Welch was changed to the 24th Battalion, Royal Welch Fusiliers referring to the 24/Welch as Fusiliers when Falls refers to the 25th Battalion as Fusiliers, not the 24th. More name changes to units here along with the call for a citation needed when a citation has been given because the editor claims without citing a source Dalbiac the divisional historian is wrong. [2] still under the rubric of ‪Adding/removing wikilink(s) Copyedit (minor)‬). More name changes here [3] and here [4] and here [5] and here [6] all under the rubric ‪Adding/removing wikilink(s) Copyedit (minor)‬) with more name changes here [7] being described as ‪Copyedit (minor)‬) and further name changes here [8] and here [9] again under the rubric ‪Adding/removing wikilink(s)‬) still without any sources being quoted.

These disruptive edits continued here [10] under the rubric ‪Copyedit (minor)‬) when more units names were changed. Still more name changing here [11] The editor continues name changing here [12]. In order to reestablish the integrity of this article, all these edits should be rolled back.

Under the rubric "brig eng" the editor changed direct quotes here [13] which I have undone. See [14] for more disruptive edits changing Battalion to BN under the rubric "Battalion = BN" without any explanation and [15] with the rubric "Battalion =BN not sure of this reads well maybe Bn would work better." This is Wikipedia not experimental editing.

These are all disruptive edits which someone should explain to the editor who made them, that are wrong and should be corrected. I have reinstated these posts because the issue is a very serious one - changing the names of the units from those which appear in the sources quoted. This is not a personal attack on the editor concerned but raises serious concerns about the integrity of the article after the names of the units have been changed. --Rskp (talk) 01:52, 8 September 2013 (UTC)

These are not disruptive edits but minor copy edits changing a word or two and correcting errors if you truly believe these are disruptive, and not just article ownership problems, I suggest you go to RFC or ARBCOM Jim Sweeney (talk) 09:22, 8 September 2013 (UTC)
As I've said I am concerned with the integrity of the article when names of units have been changed from those referred to in the sources used to describe the action, giving room for the possibility of a disconnect which deeply worries me. --Rskp (talk) 02:44, 9 September 2013 (UTC)
