Sir Robert Clark[edit]

  • ... that Sir Robert Clark's teddy bear is thought to have been the only one to have parachuted behind enemy lines and then survive as a prisoner of war?

  • Article - moved from user space on 17 February, so new enough; 14932 characters of readable prose, so definitely long enough; neutral; at least one inline citation to every paragraph; no copy vios detected using earwig and a quick run on duplication detector; I've assessed as start class (I would have marked as at least C but it won't let me!); and I don't see any BLP issues - yes, I know he has died but I check anyway. Any parts that might be considered slightly controversial by some are quotes, which I've checked against the refs.
  • Hook - going for the original as I like teddy bears - it is well within length criteria at 148 characters; correctly formatted; correctly cited/supported by ref #1 at the end of the Navy career section; and drew my attention! I've struck the two ALTs.
  • QPQ done; no image used for DYK but those in the article appear to be PD.
  • It doesn't affect this DYK, but should WP:Persondata unseen text be added?
