Article creation - May 2010[edit]

I have started this article, and will add to it as I am able. Janggeom (talk) 18:52, 30 May 2010 (UTC)

Update April 2011[edit]

Thanks Janggeom for starting this article on an very important Australian. Updates for Anzac Day 2011 include expanded details from archival information, context from unit histories and photographs of Caleb Shang. Thanks Janggeom for editing typos and formating problems--L42A1 (talk) 13:16, 24 April 2011 (UTC)

Thanks, likewise, for your valuable work on the article over the past few days, L42A1. Janggeom (talk) 14:50, 25 April 2011 (UTC)

Janggeom, I have used the actual text from the citation from the London Gazette for the 1st DCM in order to tidy up the quote. I have linked the other decorations to the London Gazette as well. Also Shang was not eligible for the 1914-1915 Star as per records and I have corrected this.L42A1 (talk) 17:25, 25 April 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for your additions and correction. I noticed in a photograph from Giese (2001) (p. 15) that the order of medals in Shang's commemorative display (DCM, MM, VM, BWM) appears to be different from the order you've included in the article (DCM, MM, BWM, VM); any comments on this? It might be that this is not important (e.g., equivalent status of medals, perhaps), but as this is not one of my areas of expertise, I am interested to learn if there are more details here. Thanks.

I didn't notice the order of the medals in that photo. They are incorrectly arranged, as the order of precedence places the BWM before the VM.L42A1 (talk) 11:14, 26 April 2011 (UTC)

Update May 2011[edit]

Adding the reference to 5483 Shang, Sidney Waugh has created added a layer of complexity to citations to NAA Series B2445, as both Shang brothers' AIF service files are in this series. — Preceding unsigned comment added by L42A1 (talkcontribs) 07:21, 25 May 2011 (UTC)
