Notes[edit]

Request for permission for grammatical edit: "It had just undergone a major and innovative carrier modernization program, the Royal Air Force (RAF) had just introduced two long-range bombers, the Vickers Valiant and the English Electric Canberra..." should read "Britain had just undergone a major carrier modernization program..." (replacing It with Britain and removing Innovative unless sources can be provided) Lenrodman (talk) 10:57, 9 May 2017 (UTC)

My understanding is that "It" is a continuation from the previous sentence and refers to "the Royal Navy", so perhaps there should not be a paragraph break at that point. In addition, I propose that the US spelling of 'program' is not appropriate here and should be changed to 'programme'. Blurryman (talk) 12:15, 9 May 2017 (UTC)

Very Adjective?[edit]

The phrase "very <pronoun>" is repeated very often in the article. For example, "very much" occurs five times. I believe, according to Wikipedia NPOV policy, that it is better to remove such phrases because "very" is unspecific and can be used to insert POV, for example, "The French wanted to use airfields in Cyprus to bomb Egypt" is a more neutral sentence than "The French very much wanted to use airfields in Cyprus to bomb Egypt" ImTheIP (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 02:46, 5 June 2017 (UTC)
