Two sentences should be edited: "... Communist invasion..." should be changed to "North Korean advance"; likewise "the Communist guns were silenced" should be phrased differently to preserve neutrality. Any objections? 18.104.22.168 11:21, 30 October 2007 (UTC)

I don't know if this is a mistake but the USS Rochester (CA-124) (which operated closely with the Jamaica during the Korean war) is known as the "Gray Ghost of the Korean Coast". If you type that phrase into google or something, web pages calling the Rochester by that name will show up. Thought it should be mentioned, this is an encyclopedia afterall.--$1LENCE D00600D (talk) 03:02, 13 November 2010 (UTC)
This article copied extensive amounts of text from http://uboat.net/allies/warships/ship/4033.html without attribution. It has been deleted, but the article will be a bit incoherent until I get a chance to rewrite it.--Sturmvogel 66 (talk) 17:56, 29 January 2011 (UTC)
Good article. OK for B-class. In intro, added "The light cruiser" to sentence 2 to make it clear what type of cruiser it was. Fixed one intro sentence that made it sound like the NK army was cooperating with the USN. You may want to review these. Added a missing word in Further convoys section.

Non-free image problem
How can File:HMS Jamaica (Crown Colony-class cruiser).jpg be justified as a non-free use image here, let alone at the class article, when File:HMS Jamaica anchored.jpg in the infobox is free? BencherliteTalk 19:18, 16 February 2011 (UTC)
I was reading "The World War II Encyclopedia" and came across a drawing of HMS Jamaica. The Specs associated with the drawing said she had 12 6-inch guns, but the drawing showed only 9. Thinking there had been some mistake I called up Wikipedia to determine if the drawing was mislabeled or the specifications were in error. The photograph in this (Wikipedia) article matched the drawing, but the armament specifications mentions 4x3 6-inch guns. It was not until I looked in the Crown Colony class article that mentions the X turret was removed from Jamaica. I feel the HMS Jamaica article: A. Should mention this change B. Should have a second set of dated armament specifications reflecting the change. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 14:08, 1 July 2013 (UTC)
