  • In the last two paragraphs of the section "Battle of Coronel", there are a number of references to a "he", the identity of whom did not strike me as clear. Specifically, the excerpts: "He broke contact with the German squadron at 20:05 and discovered Monmouth...", "The German cruiser closed to within 600 yards (550 m) and illuminated her flag with his spotlight...", and "The German ship then fired a torpedo which missed and turned off his searchlight". Are German vessels sometimes referred to as males instead of females, or are these instances meant to refer to any of the officers involved in the battle? As you’ll see, I’ve added some shortening to my sig! (talk) 07:42, 15 March 2014 (UTC)
  • Good to go, in that case. Congratulations! :) As you’ll see, I’ve added some shortening to my sig! (talk) 21:41, 16 March 2014 (UTC)
