The Great War Sticker causing a red linked category

+5 votes

I recently added the Great War template sticker to Percy Gaudin Beck as he died while serving in the Canadian Expeditionary Force.

The Sticker has generated a red linked category. The category that technically it should generate is also added to the profile. 

Can someone well versed in Categories and Stickers advise what the best solution should be? Is it rename the linked category of Category: 102nd Infantry Battalion, Canadian Expeditionary Force, World War 1 or do i need to do an adjustment to what I have entered into the sticker?

Just an observation, but the category on itself is also on that page. Maybe the system does not like the same category to be linked twice to one page?

Have you tried by removing the category itself?

edit- typo
Hi Michel It isn't the fact that the category is linked as well as the sticker. I noticed that the sticker generated the red category link and then added the category that the profile belongs to afterwards.

The category generated by the sticker is slightly different to the already existing category that i have linked to. That is the conflict which I am uncertain how to rectify.
Have you tried using the numeral 1 in the red category, instead of the I ?
You got good eyes ;)

The category ending with "World War 1" is a mistake. I'm renaming it to "... World War I" with a Roman numeral.

However, military categories are not my forte so I can't guarantee that "102nd Infantry Battalion, Canadian Expeditionary Force, World War I" is a correct category (but it could be, unlike "World War 1" which was definitely incorrect.)
