Right, I've fired together a quiz to send off. I couldn't shoehorn a Stranraer question in, but I did a Scottish football question. If it doesn't get published next week I'll post it here.

5/10 today. Given most of them were guesses (only ones I knew were the concorde and the kilt question) I'm ok with that.

4- That's brilliant but no idea. I hope it's Noddy Holder so D

5- 16 pawn and 4 knight- 20. C

6- A by elimination as I don't know Tin but gold is Au, Silver Ag, and lead Pb

7- Thatcher, Wilson, probably (at least) one more I've forgotten. B

8- C. I know this one and it makes logical sense anyway.

A 6 via PM from Jacksgranda.

Number 4 is a bit obscure. It's not the lead singer, but it was an active member who is probably thinking right now "WHAT THE f**k WAS I THINKING?".
