1.Pt.1 change: Delete entirely. Evidence is limited to one BBC performance, and subsequent evidence suggests the play came from West Lulworth.
2.There must be serious doubt about the authenticity of this performance.
Pt.2 changes: Extant year changed from post 1918 to 1937 and source Radio Times (1937) added
3.Pt.3 addition
4.This is probably the source of the play at 'Egdon Heath' described by Thomas Hardy in The Return of the Native.
5.Pt.1 change: Delete Christmas. Change play type to Hero-Combat
Pt.3 change: Christmas and source Cooke (1921) added
6.Pt.2 changes: Extant year changed from 1952 to c.1972 and source Cawte Coll. added
