It does sound a good idea to merge the earlier WW1 material about the British 2nd Division with the later material: that way you get all the material together in one place in chronological order. Also it is consistent with articles about other Divisions. Dormskirk 13:26, 28 April 2007 (UTC)

Yes indeed, especially as unlike for some higher numbered units, the 2nd was a regular formation in both World Wars, probably never being disbanded during the entire period.--Caranorn 11:34, 29 April 2007 (UTC)
I think this could be merged - if there are no objections in the next day or so, I'll do it. Carom 01:42, 16 August 2007 (UTC)
I have merged the articles please amend if I have made any mistakes in the process Dormskirk 19:19, 25 August 2007 (UTC)


Rating and improvements[edit]

I have just completed another assessment of this article and believe it to be a Start class article, as I believe that it does not meet B class criteria 1 and 2. As such, I feel that the article could be improved by addressing the following:

  • Referencing: for a successful B class review, every paragraph or block of information (i.e. list) requires an in line citation (more if multiple sources are used, or multiple challengable assertions are made);
  • Coverage: the article is very focused upon the order of battle for the divisiion, rather than the indivdual actions in which it fought. This information is great, but there needs to be a section that ties everything together and discusses what the division did in the major wars/engagements it has fought in. Currently the introduction is very long, so I would suggest maybe using that as the basis of a section called History and rewriting the intro so it is a little bit more concise.

Just a couple of ideas, if you would like more in depth feedback, please consider listing the article for peer review. This can be done by going to WP:MHPR. When you feel that the article is ready for re-assessment, please add it to the list at WP:MHA. Hope this helps. — AustralianRupert (talk) 06:15, 1 May 2009 (UTC)
