Original research[edit]

Regardless of whether the uncited facts in this article are correct or not, isn't this synthesis original research? Prime Ministers aren't expected to lead the armed forces, the governor-general does so. Andjam 01:56, 28 December 2006 (UTC)

The article aims to list Australian Prime Ministers who "served" in the military, and doesn't make any claim of their leading of the armed services. I guess the facts are verifiable and that's why I've requested some sources. -- Longhair\talk 02:04, 28 December 2006 (UTC)
Does this page make any more sense than, say, Australian Education Ministers with military service? Andjam 03:33, 28 December 2006 (UTC)
