  1. Russia? After the revolution, sent to support the White Russians.
  2. We think bats also hibernate but not sure which species!
  3. Thank you for the ding - next question Whose appreciation society is called "Sons of the Desert"
  4. As nobody else has had a go. We are not sure of the exact meaning or the exact area in question, but believe it has something to do with convicts being taken to the public execution area and being allowed to stop for "a final refreshment" en route.
  5. We know Scafell Pike is 3210 feet having recently found the 2 caches on the summit. Are we allowed to use information found in the book "Britain's highest mountain walks" for the answer to Ben Nevis and Snowdon (not using the internet)?
  6. Having googled the answer, glad we're not in yorkshire yellow's pub quiz league! And we think its a design rather than an invention.
  7. DING to yorkshire yellow. Liverpool won 11-1 over the 2 legs in their 1st European game. From a bit of research of the wrong answers Leicester City = 1961 Manchester United = 1956 Arsenal= 1963 Everton = 1962
  8. Sorry, not Manchester United, Arsenal or Everton. 4 down, 16 left. A couple of more wrong guesses and we'll post a clue. Edited for spelling.
  9. Thank you, football, which current (2016-17) English premier league team played their first match in a European competition against Knattspyrnufélag Reykjavíkur FC in 1965?
  10. No idea of the name but could it be one of the "kings" of a Nigerian state, seem to remember reading something on BBC news website.
  11. Ding to Yorkshire Yellow - not too sneaky a question. One is the answer we were looking for, Bassenthwaite Lake is the only lake, the other bodies of water are all 'mere', 'tarn' or 'water'.
  12. Thank you - it was just a fluke! Hopefully this question isn't too obscure or controversial. Cumbria, how many lakes are in the Lake District?
  13. We'll have a guess at they share a name - Richard Burton - one was a Victorian explorer of Arabia who went to mecca although not a muslim and the other the welsh actor. The penny dropped whilst reading a book about early travellers in Arabia (we lived in Saudi Arabia for a while and have several books on the region) whilst listening to Jeff Waynes War of the worlds narrated by the Welshman, otherwise we would not have had a clue!
