Battle of Arnee

Well spotted Beverley. I have made the amendments.--Sy 04:30, 8 January 2010 (PST)

NW Frontier

You are right. If I had known this I wouldn't have bought the book! I have added Historical Books on-line to the NW Frontier Campaigns article but not to all the expeditions yet as they would require specific links to each action. The only problem with the on-line book is that they haven't got a full image of the maps in the back pocket. Lazy?--Sy 03:37, 12 January 2010 (PST)


I think that Somerset CC must have restricted access to library members only. I have taken the link off this page and the 1st Afghan War article. I see you have added Sale's biography. Since I found the Dictionary of Indian Biography I have been adding links to relevant people on the War pages. Have a look at 1st Afghan War article. I want to distribute the links to the associated battles but haven't got round to many. I suggest we keep the same format for all these links. I have left off ranks and titles as they changed over time and just put in First name, last name and dates. If you think there is a better format please amend them.--Sy 03:02, 21 January 2010 (PST)


Hi Beverly, I made a couple of formatting changes to Farrier but have explained them in the edit summary. I also redirected the Shoeing Smith (also Shoesmith) page to Farrier using this method:

#REDIRECT [[Farrier]]

If you click on the shoesmith link in my sentence above you'll see it goes straight there now, no middle man needed. To return to the actual shoesmith page and see what is written there (or edit it), note the little 'redirect from' link under the Farrier title. Sarah 13:46, 4 February 2010 (PST)

Henry Havelock

Hello Beverley. Thanks for putting the image on this page. I would like all the biographies I have been doing to have them but am not at all confident about copyright. If you can help with others, I would be most grateful.--Sy 07:18, 2 May 2011 (UTC)

Henry Lawrence

Hi Beverley
I think you will find that the image you uploaded is of John Lawrence not Henry his brother. Pity. It's a nice engraving.--Sy 17:17, 3 May 2011 (UTC)


Hi Beverly. You said: I removed the book about Simla as I feel, without a personal review, this constitutes advertising.

I guess it’s a matter of viewpoint. I look on it as providing information about something a visitor to the Fibiwiki may not otherwise be aware of. I assume this was the view of the person who placed the link on the British Raj List, who I think is the administrator of that List. I note the FIBIS Blog has provided information about data which is to be added to the commercial site FindMyPast, in addition to information about tours and at least one book, written by a member. To me, a book review which appeared in a newspaper is no more an advertisement than the Blog which refers to FindMyPast. Cheers Maureene

Hi Beverly. I was going to add some links to Simla but when I look at the page in detail, I see that you have deleted every addition I have mage to this page since 1 April 2010. Could you please advise what is objectional about all the additions you have deleted.Maureene 06:38, 25 October 2011 (UTC)

Bangalore Cemeteries

Thanks for your recent advice Regards Maureene (talk) 07:23, 7 March 2014 (UTC)


Your edits of 8 February 2015. It appears as though you think the online Journal of the Royal Army Medical Corps is the same as the British Medical Journal , as you have moved the former from section 1.3.2. and amalgamated them with the latter, section 3 all under the heading British Medical Journal . They are in fact distinct Journals. Maureene (talk)

Naini Tal

Your edit of 6 February. You made a deletion due to "duplication". I can't see any other link which is similar. Could you please advise. Thanks Maureene (talk) Thanks for advising. I had looked at the link you quoted, but no image appeared at the time, which confused me- slow download problems I suppose. Maureene (talk) 9 February 2015, my estimate of your time 8.15 am
