Disambiguation link notification for September 22
Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Air force, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Air Division (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.
Hello, I noticed that you recently created a new page, A. Tylee. First, thank you for your contribution; Wikipedia relies solely on the efforts of volunteers such as you. Unfortunately, the page you created covers a topic on which we already have a page – Tylee. Because of the duplication, your article has been tagged for speedy deletion. Please note that this is not a comment on you personally and we hope you will continue helping to improve Wikipedia. If the topic of the article you created is one that interests you, then perhaps you would like to help out at Tylee – you might like to discuss new information at the article's talk page.
If you think the article you created should remain separate, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, you can place a request here. Additionally if you would like to have someone review articles you create before they go live so they are not nominated for deletion shortly after you post them, allow me to suggest the article creation process and using our search feature to find related information we already have in the encyclopedia. Try not to be discouraged. Wikipedia looks forward to your future contributions. FunkyCanute (talk) 15:58, 2 April 2013 (UTC)

Hi mate, I've seen your redlinks for this position. I have an Australian Air Board article brewing that would cover this -- just letting you know so we don't double up, in case you were thinking of creating an AMP (Aust) article. Cheers, Ian Rose (talk) 23:00, 18 June 2013 (UTC)
Thank you for the excellent picture! I have moved it much further up the page, as it is a fantastic general view that shows the scale, and the building in use, rather than the details of the architecture. It's now located on the section on Ministry, where it complements the large view of the exterior in the previous section. Amandajm (talk) 06:49, 9 July 2013 (UTC)

WikiProject Military history coordinator election
Just to explain my interest: for a while I've been intermittently working on a complete list of all general officers of the British Army up to 1760, but it's a big task and there's still a long way to go. I think chronological lists of generals would complement the alphabetical list of British generals and brigadiers and the lists by rank of full generals and field marshals that currently exist - the future ideal being that Wikipedia would have complete lists of generals for major time periods, so one would be able to see who all the senior British officers were at the time of e.g. the American War of Independence, the Napoleonic Wars, the First World War. There is already a list of Victorian era British generals but it's in the early stages. Opera hat (talk) 11:29, 19 February 2014 (UTC)
Notification of automated file description generation
Your upload of File:Composite Braid Sqn Ldr.jpg or contribution to its description is noted, and thanks (even if belatedly) for your contribution. In order to help make better use of the media, an attempt has been made by an automated process to identify and add certain information to the media's description page.
This notification is placed on your talk page because a bot has identified you either as the uploader of the file, or as a contributor to its metadata. It would be appreciated if you could carefully review the information the bot added. To opt out of these notifications, please follow the instructions here. Thanks!

Walter de Huntercombe, 1st Baron Huntercombe
Hi Greenshed, I noticed that you called for the arms of Walter de Huntercombe, 1st Baron Huntercombe, so I created, uploaded and linked them. --Kiltpin (talk) 19:57, 25 December 2014 (UTC)
Hi again - I am pretty good with shields, but am just learning the full achievement. I have all the elements, it is just a case of putting them all together. As I am exRAF, I will make a special effort. I will keep you updated - one way or the other. --Kiltpin (talk) 17:53, 26 December 2014 (UTC)
