The lead could be expanded a sentence or two. For instance it mentions nothing on it being a flagship
"She participated in annual maneuvers in the Irish Sea" - manoeuvres
" The following month, Repulse took part in the annual maneuvers" - manoeuvres
"In July and August, when the annual maneuvers were held in the Atlantic" - manoeuvres
"In August 1900, she again was involved in annual maneuvers in the Atlantic" - manoeuvres
"and the ship took part in Reserve Fleet maneuvers in July" - manoeuvres
"on 3 January 1905 for service in reserve with a nucleus crew" - is this the same as a skeleton crew?
Kind of, but not exactly. Aside from a few junior ratings for the heavy lifting of daily maintenance, I'd suspect that the crew was quite a bit more senior than usual as their function was to train the reservists.

"The refit complete, Repulse recommissioned at Chatham" - how about With the refit completed?
Manoeuvres ;-D. Sorry, at least it gave me a reason to make more comments! The lead could do with a very slight expansion, and once they're all addressed then this can pass. JAGUAR 18:07, 24 April 2016 (UTC)
Sad thing is that I remember thinking that I needed to check the spelling of the rest of them before I could consider it done, but later totally forgot about it. Thanks for taking this one so quickly.--Sturmvogel 66 (talk) 19:45, 24 April 2016 (UTC)
With all of the issues clarified, this should be good to go. Usually I wouldn't mind the different spellings, but it gives me an excuse to list more comments! JAGUAR 21:04, 24 April 2016 (UTC)
