Regarding the page His Royal Air Force rank insignia

According to the Manual of Style, the page His Royal Air Force rank insignia should be His Royal Air Force rank insignia (Baustralia). What edit summary are you referring to in your edit summary regarding this issue? -- President Devin Purcell  Penn Federal Republic 11:17, 21 April 2022 (UTC)

I disagree. The MoS states that "when creating an article with a common title, be sure to disambiguate it properly." This would call for the change you wanted to make. My point is that no organization uses the "His Royal" prefix. It's a Baustralian thing, not a common thing. I don't believe His Royal Navy, HRAF, etc. are common titles. Secondly, we also don't see "Royal Navy (United Kingdom)", because it simply needs not the disambiguation. One assumes by the His Royal piece that it's Baustralian. --His Majesty John I by the Grace of God of Baustralia, King (talk · email) 14:58, 21 April 2022 (UTC)
Yes, while the MoS states that "when creating an article with a common title, be sure to disambiguate it properly," you omitted the second part of that sentence, which states "e.g. Foreign Office (Austenasia). I disagree with your point of the "His Royal" prefix allowing you to have special permissions, as "His Royal" is not a prefix that you have laid claim to as of which your micronation's name. Any micronation with a monarchy government style could name their air force "His Royal Air Force." -- President Devin Purcell  Penn Federal Republic 15:13, 21 April 2022 (UTC)
Yes, regarding both points, at this time, the prefix His Royal is used uniquely by Baustralia. While I cannot control it, it isn't common enough to warrant disambiguation. As for the Foreign Office, I would disambiguate that, because there's many Foreign Offices. There isn't a His Royal Foreign Office. Back to Royal Navy. It's not common. Only the UK uses Royal Navy, but we still don't see "Royal Navy (United Kingdom)". --His Majesty John I by the Grace of God of Baustralia, King (talk · email) 15:17, 21 April 2022 (UTC)
P.S. It's just not neccessary. No one will be confused about whos HRAF it is, if theres only one HRAF.
Yes, we don't see "Royal Navy (United Kingdom)", however upon rereading the MoS it appears that using the prefix "His Royal" would still be against MoS as per "Styles - His Majesty (HM), His Royal Highness (HRH), etc - are never included in article titles." -- President Devin Purcell  Penn Federal Republic 15:24, 21 April 2022 (UTC)
That argument is simply ridiculous because it's the name of the organization. --His Majesty John I by the Grace of God of Baustralia, King (talk · email) 15:26, 21 April 2022 (UTC)
