'when genuine chanteyman Stanley Slade recorded a few for the BBC in the '40s, he used Davis & Tozer's texts!'

That's very interesting JL - can you elaborate? I only discovered the Slade recordings recently at the British Library, and had wondered whether he might have been one of Bert Lloyd's early sources, though I have no evidence for this and I'm not aware that Lloyd ever mentioned him.
