Welcome to Dormskirk's userpage

I am very interested in Finance and Military History.


With regard to Finance I have expanded the FTSE 100 article to set out what happened to every former constituent of the FTSE 100. I have also written new articles on all former FTSE 100 companies and all current FTSE 250 companies that did not already have articles about them. I have also updated every infobox in every article for every FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 company to show the latest financial results (initially the 2007 results, then the 2008 results, then the 2009 results, then the 2010 results, then the 2011 results, then the 2012 results, then the 2013 results, then the 2014 results and, more recently, the 2015 results).


With regard to Military History I have either written or substantially expanded many biographical articles about First Sea Lords, Chiefs of the General Staff and Chiefs of the Air Staff.
