Wasn't the Lp chart 50 years old recently?

 

If so, my guess would be Elvis Presley.

 

Just over 50 years ago, July 1955. But Not Elvis

(Technically 'The 1900's' (sic) ran from Jan 1st 1900 to Dec 31st 1909. 1926 is in the 1920s. Now, if you'd have said the first half of the 20th century, that've been fine...)

The cap is half on! I'll try this Theodor Seuss Geisel and his first book was published in 1937, now did you mean his first book or his first work to be published?

I asked one of my military students about the map. He says it's at the REME regimental museum in Arbourfield.

D'you want a Lat/Long?

 

My student is very well trained in Advanced Land Navigation and now knows how to produce GPS-quality co-ords without GPS!

My stude now says that his former Regiment's museum is in Gillingham, not Berkshire.Heidbanger.gif

 

Berkshire -> Kent. Not much difference!

 

Gawd'elp us! The guy is ex-REME and is a newly qualified nav instructor in Mobility Troop of a special forces unit.

 

If my stude's wrong again I shall take the pi§§ out of him mercilessly.

 

If my stude's right, I shall give way to CurryKev as I think he meant Royal Engineers Museum when he answered "REM".

just waiting for kev to carify his answer, and hopefully award a ding to someone!! BTW if I hide a cache in Kent and asked your student to look for it in Berkshire would that wind him up???

Nope, but if any of my studes ever made as big a gaffe as that in the field, it sure as he11 would wind me up!

 

He'd have failed the course and perhaps been returned to the REME.

 

Oh, the horror, the horror.

Smee? OK.

 

This is a two-part question; each part is a clue for the other:

 

The delightfully named Sir Cloudesley Shovel is best remembered for what event?

 

What world-changing endeavour resulted?

What world-changing endeavour resulted?

Sir Cloudesley managed to wreck his ship the "Association" (and a good portion of the British fleet) off the Isles of Scilly.

 

Resulting in the Admiralty flinging up their arms in horror and saying, "We must solve the problem of accurately determining longitude!" - Leading to Mr Harrison and his fabulous chronometers.

 

(combined Blorenge effort)
