    This "vengeance weapon" is very, very famous. Even my grandmother knows it. In Finland one of its nicknames is 'Hitlerin kosto', Hitler's revenge.

    V1... V2... VW ?

    Surely you could not accuse the humble Beetle of causing "grief, horror and discomfort"

    Yes I could. And I already did. :D
    VW Beetle really has that nickname here in Finland, Hitler's revenge.
    Your turn, Mister!

    Well, maybe the new model Beetle, but surely not Herbie!

    OK, what links a fishermans garment, a cow, a womble and the last clipper?

    This one I like Tim, been on it for hours, but, my final answer is the Channel Islands? My lateral thinking, probably not correct is......Fishermans garment....Gansey,Guernsey(Jersey). Channel Island.
    Womble name.......Alderney....Channel Island.
    Cow......Jersey..........Channel Island.
    Last Clipper.......Cutty Sark.....Sark......Channel Island.
    (I played around with Tobermory and Scottish Islands, Shetlands, Knitwear Jerseys for a long time but this is the best yet. Come up with another if this is correct, must keep the old brain working even if the body is wearing out!)

    Well done, Merlin -- it is the four main Channel Islands
    (btw, I'm NOT Tim)

    Cow and Garment can be Guernsey or Jersey -- your choice
    Rest of it is exatly correct.

    I tried to get the other islands (Herm, Jethou, Brecqhou, and Lihou) into it, but really couldnt come up with any suitable clues.

    Your turn for a cryptic question!

    Well, you gave us 'Totensonntag' (not answered yet) so I give you 'Rosen Montag', for the roses, the Monday of the BIG Köln Karneval (This year Feb.4th.), next day Shrove Tuesday, ( Pancake Day race in Olney) and last day of Karneval, then Ash Wednesday, first day of Lent. So, answer is 'Ash'. are there only two of us doing this?

    Another cryptic question:
    What is the connection between two of Britain's most famous soldiers, Jim Hawkins' home and the jewel in King Edward's crown?

    Full explanation, please

    Right, the home was the 'Admiral Benbow'.
    Colonel Benbow and Capt. Benbow were civil war officers , both executed.
    but these are too early.
    Is King Edwards Crown and the Confessors crown the same one?
    Good stuff these questions Tom.
