Did You Know
A fact from this article appeared on Wikipedia's Main Page in the "Did you know?" column on July 8, 2005.
The text of the entry was: Did you know ...that the French battleship France sank after hitting an uncharted rock during a patrol of Quiberon Bay on August 26, 1922?


The war was not yet declared. Poincaré and the battleship "France" arrived in France the 28th or 29th july 1914. Only Austria had, at that moment, declared war to Servia. France and Germany were not yet in war. Germany only declared war to Frence the 3th August, if I'm not in mistake. So the "France" could'nt escape the german ships, because there was not war. Please confirm the matter. My excuses for my bad english,Jorge, 29 April 2009 —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:14, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

where built?[edit]

The article says France was built by ACL at St Nazaire, but Jane's says it was Chantiers de Penhoet (of St Nazaire). Can anyone confirm either of these? Xyl 54 (talk) 15:56, 2 August 2011 (UTC)
