Rectors Falkland Islands[edit]

The above Wikipedia article lists Harry Bagnall as first Rector. Under the new Cathedral constitution of 1978 The first Rector was myself, the Rev'd Gerald Smith. This document should be in the Cathedral safe and in F I Government records and those of the Archbishop of Canterbury. This appointment obviates a potential schism of what was then a Colonial bishopric. Previous attempts to correct this have failed due to the intricacies of Wikipedia editing procedures.

Harry Bagnall was rector from 1979, as stated in our article and in his obituary in The Independent. He was at New Cantley in 1978. Unfortunately, private papers cannot be used as references in Wikipedia, but I have found this picture of you whitewashing the Falklands!. It's a bit weak as a reference. Can you find something better? I don't think there is much point in the new draft you have created without any references. The best place for the discussion is the talk page of the article that you edited. Would you like me to copy the relevant sections to there? Dbfirs 12:07, 15 January 2018 (UTC)
