Incomplete sentence in Background?[edit]

Was reading through this, and stumbled across this sentence in the "Background" section-paragraph:

Numerous proposals were submitted to the Technical Branch, but only two, prepared by P. Gille, a naval engineer overseeing the construction of the Normandie-class battleship Flandre, and then Lieutenant Durand-Viel, a student at the Naval College, respectively.

It feels like something is missing, as the "only two" does not appear to be properly explained... what is the context of these two being singled out? Only two, [prepared yadda respectively] were further evaluated? ...met the TB's criteria? Clarification appreciated. -- saberwyn 11:36, 11 August 2014 (UTC)

Good catch! Sometimes with those long sentences one can forget how the sentence started by the end of it ;) I've corrected it and split it in half to be a little more easily readable. Thanks! Parsecboy (talk) 12:14, 11 August 2014 (UTC)
