We check that the connected centralisers of nilpotent elements in theorthogonal and symplectic groups have Levi decompositions in evencharacteristic. This provides a justification for the identification ofthe isomorphism classes of the reductive quotients as stated in[Liebeck, Seitz; Unipotent and Nilpotent Classes in Simple AlgebraicGroups and Lie Algebras]
