1. Well written:
1a. the prose is clear and concise, it respects copyright laws, and the spelling and grammar are correct.
1b. it complies with the manual of style guidelines for lead sections, layout, words to watch, fiction, and list incorporation.
2. Verifiable with no original research:
2a. it contains a list of all references (sources of information), presented in accordance with the layout style guideline.
2b. all in-line citations are from reliable sources, including those for direct quotations, statistics, published opinion, counter-intuitive or controversial statements that are challenged or likely to be challenged, and contentious material relating to living persons—science-based articles should follow the scientific citation guidelines. Please recheck your references. One comes back with a suspicious/dead link (fn119 - soft 404); 4 come back to connection issues. There are 3 paywall refs (which are OK, just noting their presence). If possible to use an archive site, that is preferable, but not required. OK, with the connection error showing as noted below by SV - and like she said, the link itself works fine.
2c. it contains no original research.
3. Broad in its coverage:
3a. it addresses the main aspects of the topic.
3b. it stays focused on the topic without going into unnecessary detail (see summary style).
4. Neutral: it represents viewpoints fairly and without bias, giving due weight to each.
5. Stable: it does not change significantly from day to day because of an ongoing edit war or content dispute.
6. Illustrated, if possible, by images:
6a. images are tagged with their copyright status, and valid fair use rationales are provided for non-free content. While valid fair use rationale is used, I would recommend a further search for alternative photos or images, especially if the plan is to take this to FA.
6b. images are relevant to the topic, and have suitable captions.
7. Overall assessment.

On hold for 7 days to check footnotes/refs. I don't anticipate any problem in passing this once that is fixed. Passed, congratulations.

Hi Greg, many thanks for the review. I think I've fixed the links. This one is still coming up blue, but when I click on it, it's fine.

Regarding the two fair-use images (PC Blakelock in uniform, and his overalls after the attack), there aren't any free replacements, so it's either fair use or nothing, I'm afraid. SlimVirgin (talk) 22:20, 19 August 2013 (UTC)

Yeah, I was afraid that might be the case. It is properly justified, and like I said, doesn't affect it passing GA. You would know more about going to FA with it than I would, but I encourage you to nominate it for FA. It's a very good article. GregJackP Boomer! 23:53, 19 August 2013 (UTC)
Thanks very much for passing it, Greg, and I'll definitely think about taking it to FA. SlimVirgin (talk) 23:59, 19 August 2013 (UTC)
Surprised this isn't a FA to be honest. Very good read and excellent work. Lugnuts Dick Laurent is dead 11:23, 10 April 2014 (UTC)
