Talk:HMS Philomel (1890)

This appears in para 1 of the 'Depot and training ship section: "...probably the Navy’s oldest fighting ship. Hall-Thompson advised that she had reached the end of her useful life..."
Who is, or was, 'Hall-Thompson'? I'm guessing he was something to do with the navy (an Admiral?) As can be seen above, this name suddenly jumps off the page without introduction or explanation.

The article is well-written with hardly any sentence or grammar errors. I would normally make a list of specific errors, but have decided that if the errors found amount to less than ten, I will fix them myself for the sake of the article. I have fixed the tiny errors myself and added some minor changes.
