Welcome to Dormskirk's userpage

I am very interested in finance, military history and hospitals.


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 successively the 2008 results, the 2009 results, the 2010 results, the 2011 results, the 2012 results, the 2013 results, the 2014 results, the 2015 results, the 2016 results, the 2017 results and, more recently, the 2018 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. Likewise Admirals of the Fleet, Field Marshals and Marshals of the Royal Air Force. And I have either written or substantially expanded articles about every cavalry and infantry regiment raised in the United Kingdom and their regimental depots and regimental museums.


With regard to hospitals I have either written or substantially expanded many articles about English and Scottish hospitals.
