08:30 - Sources shown on Allied Warships and Commanders
Starting today we're showing our sources for certain aspects Allied Commanders (ranks, decorations and commands of warships). This will readily show where our source for those details is. Examples include USS Monterey (CVL 26) and Capt. Lester Thomas Hundt, USN. We have always recorded our sources but much of it is primary material and/or personal correspondence not suited to publish. But now we'll publish most of what we can and steadily improve this section. Since both Allied Commanders and Allied Warships were largely created via mass data imports lots of details don't have specific source listed but newer information tends to include it.
