Andyturner 21:56, 29 April 2007 (BST) Copied text from Wikipedia article. Also copied the references - but these don't seem to work here. Is is something which needs to be enabled on the server, or have I missed out something crucial? (or should I just delete them / integrate into article text?)

Andyturner 13:31, 30 April 2007 (BST) To answer my own question, the required extension has not been installed on this server (<ref> not listed under Parser extension tags at Special:Version) - see I'll leave the refs on the Bert Lloyd page alone for the moment.

Andy-elsewhere on Folkopedia, I have put a link to the Wikipedia items on Lloyd, MacColl, and Child. I though we might have our own items eventually, but these will do for now. --PeteWood 18:32, 30 April 2007 (BST)

--JohnnyAdams 20:31, 30 April 2007 (BST) I will ask our Technical Directors if we can install that bit of code.

Just a note on the last sentence of the Wikipedia article quoted - evidence uncovered by Dave Arthur in researching his book suggests that Lloyd had little interest in folk songs while he was actually in Australia but later engaged in some 'conjectural restoration' of what he had absorbed when working there. --JohnnyAdams 11:32, 21 November 2008 (UTC)
