I've just added a 'notable receivers' section - which I think would be interesting and informative.Malick78 15:01, 10 September 2007 (UTC)
At first I fact-tagged this, but on second thought am removing to here, for anyone to follow up and source it if you can.

he was known to north vietnamese forces as Lông Trắng du Kich "whitefeather sniper". and on this page <http://www.usmilitariaforum.com/forums/lofiversion/index.php/t85601.html> you can see three newspaper excerpts from 1865, 1917, and 1919 that mention the white feather. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 17:26, 29 September 2011 (UTC)Namangwari
The cyrano section
As a french person, I am really confused what this is doing on this page. Historically a "Panache" is a "an ornamental tuft (as of feathers) especially on a helmet" (merriam-webster definition). Thus a panache has 0 reason to be white. And then, Cyrano isn't talking about his hat. He is talking about his "dash or flamboyance in style and action" (merriam-webster again). This section is constructed on a misunderstanding of the french original text and should be removed IMO — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2001:620:600:6000:EC7F:F368:F84:F48D (talk) 14:57, 28 May 2013 (UTC)
