British cavalry during the First World War
Created/expanded by Jim Sweeney (talk). Nominated by NJR ZA (talk) at 19:20, 7 October 2012 (UTC)
- Shouldn't the hook specify that these were the first shots fired in combat during that time? Surely no 99 year span in Europe since the arrival of gunpowder has gone without a murder or hunting. Abyssal (talk) 16:58, 9 October 2012 (UTC)
- Length, history and reference verified. Another fine accomplishment by WP:MILHIST. I reworked the hook and the corresponding sentence in the article to make the distinction drawn in the comment clearer and make it clearer what the linked article is, and added a Wiktionary link that helps.
