Source or not Source?[edit]

The article on X-Craft is interesting, but I thought that Operation Source was sufficiently important to justify its own page. Especially so, when the page existed as a redirect. So, I extracted the material from X-Crafts and adapted it to stand alone. At the same time, I abbreviated the description of Source in the original article.

No offence is intended by reverting the article, but I still think that Source should be separately described and the X-Craft article linked to it.

I stumbled upon this subject via the rather good book "Against All Odds" ( ). Which is a great account of Operation Source, and seems to be very well researched. Unfortunately there seems to be precious little information to be found on the internet about it. 01:34, 25 March 2007 (UTC)

Grove gives it some coverage, but contradicts some facts presented, & believes X-5 may've laid the fatal charges. TREKphiler hit me ♠ 20:25, 20 November 2008 (UTC)

X5 or X6?[edit]

The paragraph that starts with "X5, commanded by Lieutenant Henty Henty-Creer" seems to discuss the fate of X5, yet the next to last sentence mentions "X6"; maybe it was meant to say "X5" too? (talk) 14:28, 17 July 2016 (UTC)
