Friday Foxer #28

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 thirteen locations plus the theme that links them.

    • The road we’re looking across is called Wilsonova, named after Woodrow Wilson.

      I can’t find any presidents in Bremerhaven, though – the buildings behind are the Columbus Centre.

  1. I think J is in the Belgian region of Flanders, with the flag of a red-tongued, black lion on a yellow field. Haven’t got any closer than that, yet.

    The face nearest the middle of E is John Logie Baird.

  2. K is Wiesloch – a statue of Bertha Benz commemorating the first long-distance automobile journey (64 miles!) on the 5th of August, 1888. She stopped in Wiesloch to pick up fuel from the local pharmacy.,8.6982848,3a,75y,260h,84.58t/data=!3m8!1e1!3m6!1sAF1QipNnUQCFlYNVAEG0tRcjuVaU71iAplewDyTanfHG!2e10!3e11!!7i8704!8i4352?hl=en
