Malcom/Malcolm[edit]

The article is currently inconsistent. So are the references: IMDb has "Malcom", Findagrave has "Malcolm". But Findagrave has clear pictures of his grave inscription, which has "Malcom". -- John of Reading (talk) 16:29, 11 December 2015 (UTC)

  • Neither IMDB nor FindaGrave is a reliable source. Nor are headstones, for that matter, as they often contain errors. - Tim1965 (talk) 18:00, 12 August 2018 (UTC)

Military service[edit]

I can find no sources that document Croft's military service other than the article from 1947 that mentions he is a veteran. No branch is mentioned, nor is the period in which he served. (During WWII? After it?) Until this can be clarified, with citations to reliable sources (not the unreliable FindaGrave), I don't think having a module in the infobox is appropriate. The module is not adaptable to the vagueness with which Croft's military service is currently known. - Tim1965 (talk) 13:55, 13 August 2018 (UTC)
