To make the listed articles compatible with the Wikipedia Licence, I have decided to edit out the the material which is based on the incompatibility licence, so that there is no text in the articles which is not compatible with the Wikipedia:Text of Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License. The current licence used by the British Civil War website is Attribution-Non-Commercial-Share Alike 3.0 Unported, which places a restriction "Non-Commercial — You may not use this work for commercial purposes." which the Wikipedia license does not.

From Terms of Use at the bottom of all the pages "If you want to import text that you have found elsewhere or that you have co-authored with others, you can only do so if it is available under terms that are compatible with the CC-BY-SA license."

Those that leave no information or so little information that they are not coherent, I shall delete and recreate as a stub under Wikipedia:Criteria for speedy deletion#G12 "Unambiguous copyright infringement. Text pages that contain copyrighted material with no credible assertion of public domain, fair use, or a free license, where there is no non-infringing content on the page worth saving ..."
