THE MAJOR A. A. GORDON SOCIETY IS PLEASED TO INFORM THEIR MEMBERS THAT THE WIKIPEDIA PAGES OF MAJOR A. A. GORDON ARE UPDATED WITH NEW INFORMATION AND PICTURES


The English Wikipedia page was originally posted by the Gordon family and we had asked the permission to expand the page with the new information from our website. The Wikipedia pages contain only a small brief history of Major Gordon and can not be compared with our official website. We believe that the Wikipedia pages shell contributes to the fame and publicity of Major Gordon.
