Thomas Hardy? :rolleyes: Someone in the military, I think, but I can't tell you more than that.

 

Picking up a theme: in the Radio 4 quiz show Brain of Britain, what do you have to do to be awarded a bonus point?

 

I'll claim the bonus - it's Admiral Hardy as in Nelson saying "Kiss me Hardy" as he lay dying on HMS Victory (or was it Kismet?....).

 

No idea about the new question

I believe it to be Tom Sutcliffe..

 

To add some interest to the previous question, I am a former pupil (very former!) of Hardye's Grammar School for Boys in Dorchester - not a million miles from either Hardy's Monument or Hardy's Cottage.. Yes, there was a third Thomas Hardy, and they were all related..!

My siter-in-law was a teacher at that school. She was assistant head teacher.

Oh, must have been after my time - I left in 1983 and they weren't up to date enough then for a lady assistant head!

 

Question : Which long-standing musician originally studied sculpture, and worked with Salvador Dali before taking up synthesizers?
