Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Henry Bouquet, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Fort Pitt (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.
I thought that your last edit added something to the page and that your previous ones were well-intended, I assume you moved UK up the list on grounds of the larger contribution, which was something I wondered about when putting them in. ;O) If you're not sure stick a comment on the talk page, that usually alerts people who watch the page that you're serious.

Clearly you know a bit about the Spanish Wars! But I must insist that you have misunderstood the point. The time-frame is not in itself important but when it goes hand-in-hand with fighting an industrialised power like Germany, in the modern age, with modern weapons, it just doesn't compare with the Succession(s). The point is the British army was not ready to, nor had any history of fighting long industrial wars. In other words it was not ready to fight this kind of war. The Germans, Russians and French had experience of mass casualties in the mid-to late 19th Century which were more like the FWW than the Spanish conflicts.
The text reads (I have edited it):
The British Army would be the smallest field force of the four combatants at the First Battle of Ypres. The British foresaw their effort much the same as in the Napoleonic Wars; maintaining dominance of the seas and providing financial support and a small highly trained army to supplement their Continental allies. Although equipped to fulfill the role set for it, the British Army found itself fighting an industrialised type of war that British Armies had never fought and had never prepared to fight against a formidable opponent such as Germany
British Army during the American War of Independence
Fantastic work with the British Army during the American War of Independence article - it's really impressive. If you were to add additional references so that all the text is supported by at least one citation it would be worth nominating this for good article status. Keep up the great work!

- cheers. I'll try and improve it and add some more sources over next couple of days. Thecitizen1 (talk) 18:52, 24 September 2013 (UTC)

In September 2013 you added a small section to British Army during the Napoleonic Wars called Hanover 1805 you did not cite any sources for this addition. Did you copy it from another Wikipedia article or did you obtain the information from a third party source? -- PBS (talk) 13:45, 24 November 2014 (UTC)
