Initial thoughts[edit]

  • Why is "The two men got along very well, dining at Trader Vic's in Oakland" releveant? Was it a regular or frequent occurence? Please clarify.
    • It establishes the personal relationship between the two, which becomes important later on. Hawkeye7 (talk) 22:50, 11 June 2013 (UTC)
  • " Lady Elizabeth Cockcroft who had died the year before" - the way this is written, it implies that they may have been more children, which there were not.
    • I don't follow this. Hawkeye7 (talk) 22:50, 11 June 2013 (UTC)
      • Omitting the comma from " alongside Timothy Cockcroft, the infant son of Sir John and Lady Elizabeth Cockcroft, who had died the year before." implies that there were more children than the one who died.--Gilderien Chat|List of good deeds 18:25, 12 June 2013 (UTC)
  • "the klyston capable of generating 400W" - do you mean klystron?
  • " large-scale railgun which was used as a scientific instrument.experiments with plasma physics" - do you mean "instrument in experiments" or has some text been accidentally deleted?
