Every Friday at 1300 hours, Tally-Ho Corner’s cleverest clogs come together to solve a ‘foxer’ handcrafted by my sadistic chum and colleague, Roman. A complete ‘defoxing’ sometimes takes several days and usually involves the little grey cells of many readers. Don’t be shy. All are welcome to participate.
To fully defox the following geofoxer, identify all twelve locations plus the theme that links them.

Last week’s defoxing party exited the chronodungeon with 56 jewels and 27 HP. An 84 jewel haul was possible.
B. Stockholms stadhuis
Can’t find the exact perspective, but it seems to have been taken from Norra Riddarholmshamnen. I probably need to change the date of Google’s images.
B) Stockholm (Norra Riddarholmshamnen, looking to the city hall): link to google maps
D – Roentgen’s house in Utrecht
It does look like we’re after elements…
C) Strontian, Highland link to google maps
Namer of strontium?
(What’s the opposite of a namesake?)
That gives a very strong hint that we’re after elements’ namesakes: Strontian for Strontium, Stockholm for Holmium, etc.
G – Australian National Aviation Museum, Moorabbin Airport, Melbourne
CAC CA-28 Ceres – Cerium
A – Edwards Air Force Base, California, Test Flight Museum and Air Park
Behind the Talon is a Thor rocket – Thorium
H) is Qaanaaq, Greenland (formerly Thule, hence Thulium); I’m still looking for the spot.
Got it: about here link to google maps
J) Platanenhain, Darmstadt: link to google maps, hence Darmstadtium.
I) Berkeley, California: link to google maps, hence Berkelium and Californium.
F) Ernest Rutherford’s birthplace – Rutherfordium
e) is Chattanooga, Tennessee’s bridges over the river Tennessee (element tennessine). Hunting the actual spot.
Edit: Here it is:
l) is Frombork, where Copernicus died – Copernicium
k) is the AkzoNobel Center in Amsterdam, giving us nobelium.
The key to finding this was working out the road marking on the far left of the picture was “MILIEU ZONE”, which is a Dutch low emission vehicle zone.
