It's one of those ones where the second you look it up you go "ah, of course" rather than "who?"

Will pm my answers after 11 if that's ok? Heading out in ten mins to do deliveries.


The deadline is Monday, I think you'll just about squeeze in before that if you send it at 11.

Got 1, 2, 4, 7 and 9 for sure. Could only muster a guess for 3, the rest I left blank. My guess was wrong though.

Pretty confident with 8/10. Absolutely no idea about 6 and 10. Can't even hazard a guess.



I think i got number 10 correct but it took a bit of dredging up. Somtimes age has its benifits..

Only got 4 so far off the top of my head but 6 was one of them so it's not totally shameful. Posted Image

Just spotted another two which were staring at me.

Where the answer is a person's name, I am looking for a FULL NAME. Answers which only give a surname will only receive half a point.


Can you name the leader and also name the country which they were/are leader of (half a point for each)?

You're assuming it's out of 10. What if it's out of 15?

Spent ages looking at number 10 and just couldn't remember who he was - just sent it in and guessed a random country for the sake of it. I have a sneaking suspicion that I really should know him, though. The rest were pretty straight forward, I thought (dunno about the spelling to be fair), though it did take me a couple of minutes to figure out number 5 - don't know why. I 'll probably think the same about number 10 when I find out who he is/was.
