Deputy Lieutenants[edit]

Greetings! I've seen your work compiling these lists. I tend to feel these should be broken out into separate articles, e.g., "List of Deputy Lieutenants of...", because the sheer number of DLs is rapidly going to overwhelm the list of the Lord-Lieutenants. However, you're welcome to make use of my earlier efforts to start compiling such lists at User:Choess/DL. Choess (talk) 23:15, 13 November 2012 (UTC)


Sparrow's paying off date[edit]

In this edit you changed the referenced date from 18 January 1900 to 19 January on the basis of a paper published on 19 January. I can't access the Times, but if your source is right, surely the Naval & Military intelligence report published on 19 January is referring to an event that happened the day before - it can hardly report something that hasn't happened before the paper was printed (on the night of 18/19 January), can it? Shem (talk) 18:50, 8 February 2014 (UTC)

The article dated 19 January has the following: ´The Sparrow, gunboat, Lieut. and Commander H. C. Wilkin, D.S.O., will pay off into the C Division of the Dockyard Reserve at Sheerness to-day.´
These paying off ceremonies are often mentioned on the day after the event, but there is nothing in The Times 22-24 January on the Sparrow (21 Jan was a Sunday). Thus I assume the information in the article from January 19 is correct. Takvaal 18:00, 9 February 2014 (UTC)

That seems pretty clear! Thanks very much. I might just drop that quote into the reference for future Wikipedians. Shem (talk) 20:03, 12 February 2014 (UTC)

Stanley Brenton von Donop[edit]

Hi - Thanks for your edits to Stanley Brenton von Donop. Please could you insert a source for his "promotion to lieutenant-colonel on 26 June 1902." Thanks. Dormskirk (talk) 22:48, 22 January 2016 (UTC)

reference added - there was a South African honours list published on the same day as the 1902 coronation honours list. Takvaal 15:00, 23 January 2016 (UTC)
Great. Many thanks. Dormskirk (talk) 15:11, 23 January 2016 (UTC)

August 2016[edit]

Information icon Thank you for your contributions. Please mark your edits, such as your recent edits to Richard Seddon, as "minor" only if they are minor edits. In accordance with Help:Minor edit, a minor edit is one that the editor believes requires no review and could never be the subject of a dispute. Minor edits consist of things such as typographical corrections, formatting changes or rearrangement of text without modification of content. Additionally, the reversion of clear-cut vandalism and test edits may be labeled "minor". Thank you. Schwede66 21:15, 19 August 2016 (UTC)

I've created Category:Bailiffs of the Royal Parks[edit]

Thanks for adding an article for Moreton John Wheatley! Seeing as there could potentially be more articles on the Bailiffs, I've created Category:Bailiffs of the Royal Parks, so if you feel like adding more about his successors feel free to apply that category to them. Nice work! MatthewVanitas (talk) 21:39, 29 November 2016 (UTC)
