I did as you suggested.

pr filename | lpr gave the header line with dtg, filename, page number

cat filename | lpr gave the top two lines I mentioned before,

Clearly then this is not an emacs problem, and unless anyone has an
option I should be looking at, I will repost this problem, slightly
revised into a more general linux group.

Thanks
