Wehrwirtschaftsführer[edit]

Hello, I have imported the page that you requested to User:Neun-x/Wehrwirtschaftsführer, not your user talk page, as that would have been inappropriate; a user talk page is for communication with the user. Graham87 15:25, 2 January 2012 (UTC)

Hi Neun, Done, but you could have moved the page yourself, as you've made far more than ten edits and your account has been active here for far longer than four days. I've copyedited the article a bit; please translate the image captions into English and the external link descriptions (the references and further reading sections are fine as they are).

Disambiguation link notification for October 25[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited It Is Never Too Late to Mend, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Jailhouse Rock (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.

Wooden bombs[edit]

Hi. I (English, *1960, widely read) thank you for your input. I'm sure we'll all sleep better from now on. Should the occasion arise again, assume I have enough initiative to find out what an urban myth is without a Wikilink. Captain Pedant (talk) 12:05, 15 March 2013 (UTC)


I have seen your latest. I believe I saw mention of these in this book http://www.amazon.co.uk/Gunners-Moon-Memoir-Assault-Germany/dp/0711003726 which I read back in the 1970s, though I have read a number of others. The wooden-bomb story didn't come from there though - as your linked article (God bless Google Translate, for I have had not one German lesson in my life) suggests and the book agrees, the RAF were quite content to use these decoys as waypoints.

But we British made our share of foolish mistakes too. Which would be funny in a way if we could tear our eyes away from the needless graves. :(

Best wishes.Captain Pedant (talk) 14:06, 24 March 2013 (UTC)

Thank you very much! Let me tell you how my 'wikipedia career' started four years ago : I visited Westkapelle, Netherlands for a few days of recreation after a hard time (divorce). I found a little museum.

http://en.tracesofwar.com/article/612/Polderhuis-Westkapelle-Dyke-and-Warmuseum.htm I (* 1965) was surprised that I had never heard about the Battle of the Scheldt. Back home, I looked through the German wikipedia to find out if these events were described and recognised adequately. That's how I started to become a wikipedian. I translated some articles missing in de.wikipedia.org , i.e. http://de.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Operation_Blackcock&diff=99363014&oldid=98916489

Estimated 40 % of my work (11.000 articles revised / improved in three years) is about 'coming to terms with the past'. It makes me unburdened that the father of my father was too old for military service in WW2 and that the father of my mother (a peace loving cellist and teacher) was only in Denmark - he didn't have to shoot during the whole war. --Neun-x (talk) 15:01, 24 March 2013 (UTC)

Interesting. My father's father was old enough to be an infantryman on the Somme in 1916, so he did well to live until 1983 and become an ancestor to a family tree I long since lost touch with most of. He had little to say about his experiences even when my ears would have been old enough to hear them. You and I both know what a hell that was even for those who lived. My mother's father was too young to have even lied about his age, and in WW2 I assume he was too old and possibly in a reserved occupation (on a fish-dock, getting food into the country). Dad narrowly missed both the ETO and the PTO as he had not finished training (aircrew) by VE Day and he was still cross-training (in Canada, on B-24s) when the Americans made all that irrelevant. His older brother certainly participated in the late-war bombing of Germany, and better-informed heads than mine have argued that many times around.

For some years - he is too old and infirm now - my father (and my mother when she was alive) were regular visitors as Friends of St George's Church, Ieper (where I learned to spell it in Vlaams!) and I went with him once. It is a sobering experience to ride in a coach, turn down yet another little side road, and find yourself looking at a few thousand more crosses, row on row... Captain Pedant (talk) 17:27, 24 March 2013 (UTC)

St George's Church[edit]

Hello again! Thank you for the heads-up, but I am not an authority on this subject - I visited it just the once, eleven years ago, saw a few graveyards, heard an interesting lecture, and attended the very moving Menin Gate Last Post ceremony (I use the word "moving" advisedly - a lady present burst into loud tears during the ceremony). But that is the extent of my involvement and I certainly cannot improve on your work. Best wishes, Captain Pedant (talk) 18:48, 4 April 2013 (UTC)

Ok ! I'm no perfectionist ; everyone who wants to can do his research work 'standing on the shoulders of giants' (scholar.google) or on wikipedia.
I've placed St George's Church in all imo adequate contexts (i.e. Ypern, Georgskirche) and "feel good" about that.
today, I translated an article of en.wikipedia.org and am very glad about that multilingual co-operation / knowledge-sharing!  :-)) --Neun-x (talk) 21:00, 4 April 2013 (UTC)
