Thanks for the ding there.

Staying with comedians, In which town was Benny Hill born and in which town did he die?

I think he died  in Teddington but haven't a clue where he was born unless that was also Teddington.

I have probably read it somewhere but there's no way I can remember. I'll guess and say India. The only reason I remembered Teddington is because I have a friend who lives there.

As the question setter is Australian, we assume it was an Australian member of the armed forces, but as to a name we have not got a clue.

That's a ding as the question was what country. The most recognised, officially, was an Australian Lewis gunner named Buie. However, there is another contender, an Australian named Popov with a possibly better claim. It was established, without doubt when Richthoffen's plane and wound were  examined after he crashed, that the single bullet that killed him came from ground fire. See

Thank you, we didn't expect the ding as it was a stab in the dark, our original answer was the same as speakers-corner.
