Have we moved to Scotland? The crown on top of the structure in the road is puzzling. Then again Royal Bath. Have little clue, really

It is in England, south of the wash.

Guess St Albans, but am off to bed and rest on thin laurels!

A final clue before I turn in, it is not as far south as London. G'Night All.

Had to wait till you went to bed to have a chance of getting one.

You were not far off with St Albans.

You are a hard act to follow.You must have a bit of a photographic memory to remember all the ones you get.

Did you do some think like this while in the Forces.Obviously you were good at map reading etc.

Map reading was very important; we had to get to know compass and map work, and charts etc, then we had to navigate with a compass , no map, and finally with no map or compass. In some parts of Sarawak in the '60's the maps had large areas marked "Unknown Territory", and we used air photos and the direction of streams to navigate. Of course the territory was in fact well known to the local tribes! (Ibans, Punans, Kenyah etc) However Brumas' little clues sometimes help, but loads of elimination and guess work is involved , as you well know! My luck has been good but I feel it is running out!!
