According to this page NATO adopted the phonetic alphabet from ICAO, but the page on the NATO phonetic alphabet says the opposite. Which one is right?

Looks like we might have a case of plagiarism here... Compare this page to [[1]] which sites its source.

Definitely looks like plagarism. See this page:

That is a public domain source, thence fair game for inclusion here. Rmhermen 18:22, 22 June 2007 (UTC)
You've offered no proof of that. Groupthink 18:52, 22 June 2007 (UTC)

If you go to the article in question, follow the link to its main page, and from there follow the Privacy Policy link you will that the fact that the article is in the Public Domain is explicitly stated.--Anthony.bradbury"talk" 19:29, 22 June 2007 (UTC)

You are correct, and I have tagged with the appropriate template to indicate this, but I think I can be forgiven for showing alarm at a page being a word-for-word copy of material on another website. Groupthink 19:51, 22 June 2007 (UTC)

Alpha or Alfa?[edit]

When I was a Midhipman at the Naval Academy in Annapolis, I learned that the correct spelling for the letter "A" was "ALFA" (not "ALPHA"). I don't know why it was decided to do it that way, but I'm pretty sure about it. Any discussion?

It is indeed ALFA. The pronunciation of "alpha" would be confusing to speakers of English as a second language. I removed the reference to the current Allied Tactical Publication, since the ATP is technically classified, not germaine to the discussion of where "Bravo Zulu" originated, and caused a disconnect with following references; and replaced it with the original language from the referenced source. -- (talk) 05:56, 25 September 2008 (UTC)

Suggested Merge[edit]

Discussion copied from Talk:Naval flag signalling.
It was suggested that this article be merged with Naval flag signalling. Debate closed for lack of support for merge. Semper Fi! FieldMarine (talk) 17:03, 8 May 2011 (UTC)

  • Do not support merge. Bravo Zulu is very frequently used & warrants it's own separate article. Thanks! FieldMarine (talk) 13:55, 13 December 2010 (UTC)
  • Do not support merge. Passing down "Bravo Zulu" is a distinct Naval tradition with cultural significance that warrants separate treatment. Thanks! Kgdobson (talk) 15:53, 14 March 2011 (UTC)
  • Do not support merge. "Bravo Zulu" is used in written and verbal communications with great frequency, if not greater frequency than in realm of signal flags. Thanks! Frebo3 —Preceding undated comment added 14:50, 8 May 2011 (UTC).
