Thanks, Dick - I was puzzled. But definitely a misnomer that needs its hash settled — Pete was no Yorkshireman in any sense whatever; even when he lived those last few years in Keighley, it was only as an incomer from outside, never as a real Yorkshireman. I remember during the war when American servicemen were stationed in England & the Southerners among them hated being called Yankees. Pete would have felt the same about being described as a Yorkshireman. Don't forget his first solo LP, while still with Young Tradition, was called MAINLY NORFOLK!!
