Charlotte - 'speaking of Nic Jones', I've just listened to Nic's version of Flandyke or Flanders Shore, and he sings it just as the Hammond Brothers collected it from Mrs Notley of Higher Woodsford, Dorset, in January 1907. The melody is the same and there are only a few (and probably inevitable) word changes- e.g. Nic sings 'just to let her know' in line three of the first verse whereas Mrs Notley sang ''twas to let her know'. (I have a photocopy of the Hammonds' mss.)
