Welcome to the April 2013 edition of the Bugle!

Last month the project recorded a significant achievement when Wikipedia's first-ever triple Today's Featured Article -- three linked pieces on German V-weapon sites by Prioryman -- ran on 25 March. This month we highlight another milestone, the very first Military History A-Class Medal with diamonds, awarded to Hawkeye7. This represents an amazing 60 articles that Hawkeye has successfully nominated for A-Class status, and we congratulate him on a great achievement.

While we're on the subject of A-Class Medals, congratulations are also in order for Dumelow, who has been awarded his first-ever A-Class Medal for three articles that were promoted four years apart!

Among our regular features, this month's op-ed is by ErrantX, who discusses the rabbit hole of sourcing down which we often travel when researching articles; we daresay it's something to which we can all relate. Sturmvogel 66 and Hawkeye7 contribute our book reviews this month, giving regular contributor and Bugle co-editor Nick-D a well-earned break.

Don't forget that there are always plenty of reviews awaiting your input at MILHIST Announcements!

Your editors, Ian Rose (talk) and Nick-D (talk).
