Gona Barracks and the six-inch gun reportedly from the HMAS Sydney[edit]

I have checked with the Qld Maritime Museum, who know nothing about this gun. They say the only six-inch gun they had came from the Cowan battery. So I have removed the reference to the QMM having the gun. But as they nothing of the gun in question, they could not help re the claim about coming from the HMAS Sydney. Not being a military history person, I don't really know where to go next to resolve this. Do you know where we might go? Kerry (talk) 04:17, 28 January 2015 (UTC)

The only Sydney I guns I know of are the ones mentioned at HMAS_Sydney_(1912)#Decommissioning_and_fate: 2 at Rottnest Island, one at Thursday Island. The sources I have do not mention any other used main guns from Sydney 1, and no artifacts of any size except a liferaft from Sydney 2. Seeing as the Queensland Heritage Register is the source cited to this questionable claim (and you've already disproven the claim that "its at the QMM" is the incorrect), asking the relevant authority (the Queensland Heritage Council?) for the origin of the statement is the best way forward. Either they can provide the origin of the claim (which could be used to strengthen the Gona Barracks and other articles), or they can't (and they remove the incorrect information from their database, improving what they provide to the community). Failing that, the Royal Australian Navy's Naval Heritage Centre may be able to help. -- saberwyn 11:32, 28 January 2015 (UTC)

Australian light destroyer project/Östergötland-class destroyer 'See also' sections (deleted).[edit]

Hi Saberwyn. I was planning to add more light destroyer types to the above sections, including those closer in time period to the respective programs. I am curious however, as to why you believe the DDLs and the Östergötlands have no connection what so ever. Not only were they both light destroyer types, but their original operational concepts were similar; in the case of the Östergötland class to help counter infiltration by Soviet underwater units including combat swimmers as well as to supplement existing destroyer classes such as the Halland and Öland. A major difference was that the DDL was intended to be the eventual basis for a family of naval vessels, while the goal of the Swedish Navy with the Östergötland class was for a cheap General Purpose combatant that could be built in large numbers. Both aims were to be ultimately frustrated; the DDL program by a combination of mission creep and political maneuvering while hopes for further Östergötlands were dashed by the, ah, interesting procurement politics in Sweden during the late 1950s and in particular the 1960s. This was despite the fact that the Östergötland class were arguably too austere.

On reflection, perhaps I should have called the section/s 'Ships of comparable era and/or role'. Ceannlann gorm (talk) 12:40, 31 March 2015 (UTC)

SS Portmar[edit]

I'd say there is enough material out there to write an article with. Ping me if you need assistance with The Times as a source. Mjroots (talk) 21:07, 23 June 2015 (UTC)

@Mjroots: Tried accessing the Times archive, but it told me I needed a subscription. -- saberwyn 02:09, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
No problem - I get free access via my library card. Mjroots (talk) 03:27, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
I've expanded the article a bit. Mjroots (talk) 04:40, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
Thanks very much! -- saberwyn 13:04, 24 June 2015 (UTC)

Hello saberwyn, thanks for the response. Regarding newspapers.com access, since you can't read the link I provided, I will add the links to my clippings page, where you should be able to see them (and link from them). It might take me a day or two to get around to it though. Gatoclass (talk) 08:11, 24 June 2015 (UTC)

Okay, I clipped some stories, they are at this link. Be sure to sort them in chronological order. If you can't view them there, let me know and I'll try to figure something else out. Gatoclass (talk) 09:50, 24 June 2015 (UTC)

Still no joy, Gatoclass. Still wants me to subscribe, and based on the url (specifically the "/mine" part), not entirely sure how readily it could be shared. -- saberwyn 13:04, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
Try this. BTW, all 19 clippings are related to Portmar - you should be able to sort them chronologically. If you can't sort them chronologically, they should appear in reverse chronological order so you can follow the ship's history (what I found of it) from the bottom of the page up. Gatoclass (talk) 14:44, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
Success! That's worked. I haven't used them all, but have extracted some very useful tidbits from them. Thanks for the help and the perseverence. -- saberwyn 03:47, 25 June 2015 (UTC)

Regards Robert Iamrob63 (talk) 10:24, 17 July 2015 (UTC)

@Iamarob63: I am curious and thank you for the offer, but if you send it to me directly, there is no easy way for me to add it to Wikipedia. I cannot easily upload photos on behalf of someone else. There are a number of legal hoops for me to jump through for me to upload a photo taken by someone else that hasn't been previously published (online or elsewhere). Instead, your best option is to join Wikimedia Commons (something you may already have thanks to unified logins across Wikimedia projects) and upload it there for use across all Wikipedia and related projects (an introduction and tutorial to Commons begins here). Alternately, sign up with an image-sharing service like Flickr and uploading the photo there with a compatible Creative Commons license (see here for a list of image licences compatible with Wikipedia projects). Please ask if you need any help with the signup or upload process. -- saberwyn 12:10, 17 July 2015 (UTC)
