Category:Imperial Camel Corps Memorial[edit]


Thanks for returning Category:Imperial Camel Corps Memorial to Category:Monuments and memorials to soldiers in the United Kingdom. It was my understanding that this memorial was a regimental memorial to all those of the Imperial Camel Corps Brigade who fell in action during their service in the First World War. All the other memorials in the Category:Monuments and memorials to soldiers in the United Kingdom are to individual soldiers. Hanton01 (talk) 06:15, 26 July 2020 (UTC)


Hey Andy, hope you're well iDangerMouse here - #wikinews on IRC wanted to know if you knew if Brian McNeil passed away or heard anything to confirm the sad news. Thanks - I'll read your talkpage later when you get time. If so condolences to all of us, Brian is a big loss. —Preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 02:52, 28 July 2020 (UTC)

I don't have any concrete news, but I see a lot of people posting condolences on his Facebook page, starting on July 7. Very sad news indeed. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 08:56, 28 July 2020 (UTC)
Now confirmed. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 10:31, 28 July 2020 (UTC)

Hyphens and African Americans[edit]

I ran across the discussion Commons:Categories for discussion/2020/04/Category:Black Africans and it seems perhaps related to Commons:Categories for discussion/2020/07/Category:African-American cemeteries. Apparently on enwiki, a hyphen is used for African-American descriptors, and I received a backlash for not wanting the hyphen in African-American cemeteries. I was surprised. In my life I don't run into the hyphen. Then I read AP tackles language about race in this year’s style guide

Meanwhile I discovered Category:Sites in the United States connected to African American history where the cemeteries fit. What do you think about all this? Thanks, Krok6kola (talk) 05:13, 2 August 2020 (UTC)
