The question - which former footballer?

Edited by Yorkshire Yellow

bit of a punt, but having lived in Weymouth for many years I know of 3 ex- players who went on to greater glories. Two of them definitely don't fit the bill for this list, but possibly the third does, so I'll try Steve Claridge, as I know he certainly played for at least some of the long list mentioned...

Ding!

 

Thanks :)

 

On a similar vein, but only using selected references rather than a complete list...

 

Silver Fox

Golden Eagle

Kingfisher

Falcon

Osprey

Golden Plover

Bittern......and many others

 

...all linked by which famous engineer / designer ?

 

Bittern is a bird and a steam train, so is Mallard (perhaps too much of a give away!) , so I'm going with Sir Nigel Gresley.

Ding to Marty - Mallard was my clue in reserve should it be required. These were some of the 35 A4 steam locomotives desgined by Gresley

A guess - The Order of the Garter?

 

Nope limit is Sovereign, Prince of Wales and 24 others = 26 (2 vacancies at this time!). Sorry - No Ding :(

 

Order of Merit ? - (that's the one I aspire to) :D

 

Sorry - I missed this one yesterday - NOPE - mind in some ways closer.

 

Present holders of this include Mary Peters, Judi Dench, Desmond Tutu and Maggie Smith - oh and Lord Coe, but there are ...... 61 others :)

Yes, it is high time to move on.

 

From Wikipedia:

 

"The Order of the ********* ** ****** is an order of the Commonwealth realms. It was founded in June 1917 by King George V as a reward for outstanding achievements in the arts, literature, music, science, politics, industry, and religion. It is sometimes regarded as the junior order to the Order of Merit."

 

If no one gets it in 12 hours or so I will give the ding to civilised as being closish!!

Just googled so won't enter - but if it helps other quizzers, the first word needs an extra *....and it is a well known Order
