- For the record, I previously nominated this article for a DYK? nomination (Template:Did you know nominations/Reg Dean) and have since expanded it by five times in the last five days. Futurist110 (talk) 07:25, 5 November 2012 (UTC)
- Hook is excellent, article meets length requirements. However, the fivefold expansion has since been largely undone in this edit by User:Necrothesp, and the immediate source for the hook (Oldestinbritain.webs.com) appears to be a personal website. I'd suggest discussion with Necrothesp to bring the article back up to its previous length. Yunshui 雲水 08:46, 9 November 2012 (UTC)
