    What year?

  3. April 29, 2012 at 7:40 am | #3

    Number one: Joan of Frog, I mean, Arc defeated the English in 1429.

    Number six: the allies liberate the portions of Italy that were occupied by Germany in 1945.

    3. Nice pic of the Radcliffe Camera library and All Souls (‘?) College, Oxford but what, I wonder?

    I need a bit more info than that Janus!

    Morning, Boadicea. Good to have a quiz again. :)

    No 8 is Frogmore, and I’m assuming that it is connected with Wallis Simpson’s funeral.

    #5 Was this the day Percy Shaw patented cats eyes, or they were first installed?

    No 7 is Eva Braun, so I’m guessing that it was her wedding day, because she died the following day.

  11. April 29, 2012 at 11:03 am | #11

    No 7 reminded me of a young Margaret Hilda Roberts, but it is Eva Braun who married Hitler on this day in 1945.

    No9. Must be when Buckingham Palace was first opened to the public.

    Araminta – I’ve been rather remiss of late! A quiz usually gets some attention! You are right on 8, 7 and 9.

    Sorry Sipu – Araminta got there first.

    Quite right FEEG !

    #3 I know the Bodielian and Radcliffe were especially opened to the public on the Royal Wedding Day. Is it that simple?

    BTW, Great to see the quiz again, Thanks Boadicea :-)

  15. April 29, 2012 at 2:50 pm | #15

    Ah, I think I may have solved No.2.

    On Hearing the First Cuckoo in Spring – Frederick Delius, played at the Royal Wedding.

    4 Lloyd George, 1909 budget, tax increases for various spurious crap such as pensions. extended the remit of collecting down the social scale from the rich only. Taxes onland ownership. (God rot him!)

    No FEEG and Araminta – Forget the Royal Wedding!

    Quite Right Christina. :-)

    Bo you should have lived in my house! My father used to endlessly carry on about Lloyd George and his bloody taxes even in the 60s! I guess he was about old enough to remember the original happening.
    It was very bad news indeed to mention Lloyd George in our house!!! He’d rave about it for days.

  19. April 29, 2012 at 8:21 pm | #19

    Oh darn, well, I’m stumped then, Boadicea.

  20. Janus
    April 30, 2012 at 2:41 pm | #20

    But who is no. 2?

  21. April 30, 2012 at 3:31 pm | #21

    Well, I thought it was Frederick Delius, Janus, but I could be wrong.

  22. April 30, 2012 at 11:00 pm | #22

    May we have a clue about the Oxford one?

  23. Boadicea
    April 30, 2012 at 11:31 pm | #23

    Oops! Aramainta and Janus – wrong photo! It was supposed to be Thomas Beecham born 1879. :oops:

    Clue for Oxford: On this day Oxford opened its doors to…

    Women? Aliens? Dogs?

  25. Janus
    May 1, 2012 at 6:12 am | #25

    Cambridge types?

    I suppose I should take Christina’s comment – although she has given me three options. :-)

  27. Janus
    May 1, 2012 at 8:16 am | #27

    But, but, which year?

    Thank you for ending the suspense, Boadicea.

  29. Boadicea
    May 1, 2012 at 9:12 am | #29

    Janus – despite my best attempts no one ever gives the year. :-)

  30. May 1, 2012 at 11:08 am | #30

    Ah, that would explain it, Boadicea.

    Not to worry, I found out a great deal about Delius. ;)

    I forgot to add that Beecham was born on the 29th of April 1879. :oops:
