Eton College[edit]

Hello Opera hat. Just to say that I have added a comment on the Talk page of Eton College in relation to a recent edit by you. Best wishes, 45ossington (talk) 16:33, 26 August 2016 (UTC)

Sir 'Andrews' Windsor[edit]

Dear Opera hat, I have added a lengthy comment to the Talk page of Andrews Windsor, 1st Baron Windsor in relation to your move of this page. I think possibly the form 'Andrews' originates with a misprint in Dugdale's Barony (1675), with everyone copying him, and that the original form ought to be 'Andrew'. If you have evidence that I am wrong, would you be so kind as to post it there? Otherwise I think it ought to return to the original place. Many thanks, Eebahgum (talk) 10:24, 4 November 2016 (UTC)

Thankyou for replying. In the light of what you say it would probably be best to restore the page to its original title, and keep this one as a Redirect. Do you have any idea how to do that so as to preserve the edit and page talk history? It's rather beyond my skills. Would you be willing to do it? I would then clean up the article, wikify a bit and put those children in readable order, add a note about the name, and maybe develop the actual subject slightly. As you wish. Cheers, Eebahgum (talk) 13:47, 4 November 2016 (UTC)
Done. Thanks for your work on this. Opera hat (talk) 13:50, 4 November 2016 (UTC)
Thank you, sir! No sooner said than done. Eebahgum (talk) 14:03, 4 November 2016 (UTC)

List of British Army full generals[edit]

Do you think that it would be worth splitting off the Indian generals, currently in List of British Army full generals, into their own list? Greenshed (talk) 03:59, 29 January 2017 (UTC)

Not really. I think there is too much overlap to make the distinction very meaningful. Opera hat (talk) 14:36, 5 February 2017 (UTC)
Ok, thanks. Greenshed (talk) 06:17, 9 February 2017 (UTC)
