I'm surprised no-one has commented on this before.

I have 2 suggestions you can feel free to ignore. Firstly, the first paragraph seems a bit long and goes from the role in the initial full invasion of Britain to supporting roles when Britain has been established in the Empire. I would consider perhaps splitting this into 2 - perhaps just before "The home port was transferred..."

The other one, after mentioning Carisbrooke perhaps you could link to the edited article on Bembridge when you mention Bembridge? A279579

>>> After the successful crossing of the Occeanus Britannicus, the English Channel, The 40,000 men of the legions made landings took place at Richborough, Lympne and Dover, and soon after the established a supply base at Noviomagus (modern Bosham) Sussex.

lower case the

>>> made landings took place

Did they make landings or did they take place?

>>> The home port was transferred to Rutupiae (modern Richborough) or Dubris1 that the (modern Dover) between the years 84 - 86 BC.

Was it both of them?

Bob, I wonder how this piece would read if more of it were in the active voice as opposed to the passive voice?

For example:

The commander of the Litus Sxonicum was given the title of Comes Litoris Saxonice Britanniam, Count of the Saxon Shore.

President Gerald Ford awarded the commander of the Litus Sxonicum the title of Comes Litoris Saxonice Britanniam, Count of the Saxon Shore.
(joking!)


>>> Sxonicum

Hard to pronounce, is there a vowel missing?

litoris Saxonici per Britanniam or Comes Litoris Saxonice Britanniam I have seen both forms it is confusing.

If you search on the web you will find both forms about 50/50.

I will go with both in the text if apprioate

I had a quick look and it seemed fine. I'm treating these three Entries about the Roman Navy as one subject - they can get linked again by a sub-editor - should the EDs select them soon, that is.

This place is a bit like big government. Things may happen slowly, but they do happen.

Congratulations to one and all.
