Chasseur alpin & Rafales[edit]

Bonjour Ultima Ratio !

I am the "vilaine" who, a few months ago[2], moved these two images to the left because, on the right, it looks as if the Chasseur alpin & the Rafales are ready to take the chase right out of the article...

Cordialement, --Frania W. (talk) 16:59, 28 November 2010 (UTC)

Non, I am not going to revert you because both our reasons are correct. Just wish these guys bon vent! wherever they are going...
Salut! --Frania W. (talk) 17:29, 28 November 2010 (UTC)

Les adieux de Napoléon[edit]


Please go to Napoléon's talk page[4] where I left a msg to Tom RE the ongoing discussion on the use of the painting by Montfort.

Je n'ai aucune idée de ce qui cloche dans cette affaire de sources.

George Washington[edit]

Hey there - I reverted an edit of yours on this article, but then did some more research and figured you did have a point, so have been sourcing and adjusting the text accordingly. Apologies for reverting too soon. -- Shearonink (talk) 17:04, 3 February 2011 (UTC)

Battle of Fort Necessity[edit]

It seems you are quite indifferent to historical accuracy! All the soldiers involved were born in Canada. What do you call the colonists during the American Revolution, British as well, so we have British versus British. Also take a look at the Quebec Act of 1774, King George III refers to his Canadian subjects throughout the Act, not his French subjects--Varing (talk) 20:47, 9 March 2011 (UTC)

Furthermore, Joseph Coulon de Villiers, Sieur de Jumonville was a French Canadian military officer. The names of those that died with him were Canadien and born in Canada. Jumonville fut abattu pendant qu'il signifiait sa mise en demeure officielle. Neuf autres Canadiens furent tués : Desroussel et Caron de Québec, Charles Bois, de Pointe-Claire, Jérôme de La Prairie, L'Enfant de Montréal, Paris de Mille-Isles, Languedoc et Martin de Boucherville, et LaBatterie de Trois-Rivières. Washington et ses hommes se retirèrent, abandonnant les cadavres de leurs victimes. ref Nos racines, l'histoire vivante des Québécois, Éditions Commémorative, Livre-Loisir Ltée. p458</ref>. After this incident, France did send French troops to help the Canadiens, therefore it would be correct to use French soldiers and French troops then after. You have to understand that there were 18,000 Canadien militiamen and France only sent 6,000 soldiers in the Seven Years War compared to 60,000 by the British, with only one third the population of France (8 million versus 24 million). Washington and his men are called Virginians, not British.--Varing (talk) 21:03, 9 March 2011 (UTC)
Sieur Louis Coulon de Villiers (17 August 1710 – 2 November 1757) was a French Canadian military officer during the French and Indian War (Seven Years' War). Perhaps his greatest claim to fame is the fact that he is the only military opponent to force George Washington to surrender. Coulon was born into a prominent French Canadian family. More proof!--Varing (talk) 21:14, 9 March 2011 (UTC)
The establishment of the Canadian Department reflected the aspirations of the Continental Congress and some Americans to annex the British province of Quebec, then often referred to as "Canada", but the effort was ultimately unsuccessful. Although the Americans captured Montreal in November 1775, and established their headquarters at Château Ramezay, the region was never entirely under the control of the Continental Army. The Canadian Department was formally established from the New York Department on January 17, 1776.[1] After the Invasion of Canada failed, all troops were withdrawn to Fort Ticonderoga, New York. The Canadian Department was officially discontinued on July 8, 1776.[2]--Varing (talk) 21:22, 9 March 2011 (UTC)
Varing's terminology might be anachronistic (i.e. "French-Canadian" may not have been contemporary usage), but it is not necessarily incorrect. However, it may not be supported by the sources currently used in the article's he's touched -- see my question at Talk:Battle of Fort Necessity. (He's also wrong on his accusation of historical inaccuracy -- see my talk page.) Magic♪piano 21:33, 9 March 2011 (UTC)

Hello UltimaRatio, I think it is necessary to return my Seine photo to "Water and sanitation" because all article hasn't a separate photo of this important part of Paris --Владимир Шеляпин (talk) 10:27, 11 April 2011 (UTC)


Hello, UltimaRatio! I'm sorry but I had to revert your last edit of the article, since my source doesn't say anything about cuirasses. Please do add the info if you wish, but just do no reference it to that particular source, as Pigeard doesn't mention it. Thanks and looking forward to working with you on an article soon, as I appreciate your contributions a lot. --Alexandru Demian (talk) 19:18, 18 April 2011 (UTC)

Battle of France[edit]

Hello UltimaRatio! Smile.gif

Thank you for showing goodwill to contribute to the article Battle of France. Another discussion about the lead image is on-going and we would appreciate if you give us your point of view about a proposition of collage including the current photo and three others. You can read the thread here.

Best regards. Mouloud47 (talk) 17:30, 1 September 2011 (UTC)

Nice to see[edit]

your statuary additions at Marquis de Lafayette. I am sure that there are a lot more out there. I am going next to my Statues of Paris book and see what can be dredged up. Einar aka Carptrash (talk) 17:20, 8 September 2011 (UTC)
