Article Naming[edit]

It may be technically incorrect to call the Article HMAS AE1, due to the fact that when the sub was in action it was not called this. But I think this is a far better name than "Australian Submarine AE1", and the HMAS tag is what the RAN now refers to the sub as, as seen in their history page (in the references on the article).

  • Which is why I moved the article from "Australian Submarine AE1", which is now a redirect. Convention on Wikipedia appears to be (to me) that ship designations and flags are 'retconned' to cover ships that would be covered by them if they entered service tomorrow. -- saberwyn 11:55, 1 March 2007 (UTC)

Discovery[edit]

The 2007 discovery has been identified as a rock!! Im going to add this to the section

OK good, but do you have a reference, to back this up? Any online news article would be good. Nomadtales 23:24, 30 May 2007 (UTC)
Agreed. I want a source on this one, {{fact}} tagged. -- saberwyn 00:26, 31 May 2007 (UTC)

Flagging recent news article[edit]

Noting this news article (which is about two planned, competing searches for the submarine) for future use in expanding the article. -- saberwyn 05:47, 31 January 2012 (UTC)
