I'll do this now. JAGUAR  17:57, 24 April 2016 (UTC)

Initial comments[edit]

  • 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.
      • Thanks for the explanation JAGUAR  21:04, 24 April 2016 (UTC)
  • "The refit complete, Repulse recommissioned at Chatham" - how about With the refit completed?
    • Indeed.
  • No dead links

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. Good article on hold 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! Good article JAGUAR  21:04, 24 April 2016 (UTC)
