... will probably be next on the list.
Someone also ought to do Robert Whinham sometime.
Any other suggestions for Wikipedia pages that should be there, but aren't?

Neither the Cheviot Ranters, Will Cocks nor Bill Hedworth appear to have their own entries, for a start. GG Armstrong?

I've done GG already - the Cheviot Ranters will be on the list at some point.
I don't know enough to do Bill Hedworth - perhaps a pipemaker should do that one?

...is at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/G.G._Armstrong

Any useful additions will be welcome here. It is shorter than he deserves.

there's a good article on Hedworth in the - I think - 1995 NPS mag.

Also see your email in a few mins - sorry I don't have time to learn to be a Wiki editor (yet)

Thanks for the article on Bill - but 1995 is before I joined.
Who wrote the articles?

Julia,
Many thanks for your help with this.
That text is up almost verbatim, with a bit of formatting and an introductory para.
It is at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_Hedworth_(pipemaker)

If anyone has anything to add, or amendments to make themselves, feel free to mess around.
I definitely don''t feel I 'own' this one.

Hi John
In Cocks' scrapbook there is mention of George Armstrong living at Bearl Farm, Stocksfield (NE43 7AJ). The farm is now an equine veterinary clinic, so I can't pass on the opportunity to remark that his former home is still associated with the Gee-Gees!

Chris :D

There is now a stub article on Archie Dagg on Wikipedia.
I should be able to add a little to this, but if there are any gross errors or omissions,
please let me know. Sources differ - did he die in 1990 or in 1991?
Is there a photo of him playing fiddle anywhere?
