  • "MacVee (MacVie?) of Ireland" - it'e neither, it's George McVeagh.

    "Fischer (Fisher?) of Switzerland" - it's Hector Fisher. (In all, 4 changed from Fischer to Fisher are required).

  • "Marnef" in text and tags should read Boris Maneff.

    As the previous contributor has pointed out, "Littleton Rogers" should read George Lyttleton-Rogers.
