Disambiguation link notification for January 4
Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Gilmore (1824 ship), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Batavia (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.

Following on from the recent HMS/HMCS discussion at WT:SHIPS - HMS Cumberland (1803) was built and owned by the colonial government from 1801 to 1803, but was not commissioned into the RN. She was commissioned in 1803, served for a year on survey work and carrying Flinders towards England, and then was left to moulder in Mauritius until 1810.
So - her longest period of service was as a Royal Navy vessel, but her longest period of active service was as a colonial vessel. What do you think - should this article be at HMS Cumberland (1803) to give primacy to the RN role, or at HMCS Cumberland (1801) to reflect colonial use? -- Euryalus (talk) 07:36, 21 January 2016 (UTC)
@Euryalus: - Cumberland was probably better known for her survey and transport role than her HMS service. I believe that HMCS Cumberland would be the better title, however confusion with Canadian vessels could be a problem. Regards Newm30 (talk) 21:59, 24 January 2016 (UTC)
