Friday Foxer #71

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.

    • One interesting fact about this skyscraper is that it was the inspiration for the Stark Industries tower in the avengers movies.

    • “The two original 32-pounder cannon from the Battle of Trafalgar, placed in the park when it opened in 1871, were removed in World War 2, but have recently been replaced by these two larger 68-pounders that once stood outside the Low Moor Iron Foundry where they were cast, and more recently in the Bradford Industrial Museum.”

  1. K – Bell AH1-J Sea Cobra at the National Museum of Naval Aviation, Naval Air Station Pensacola, Florida.

  2. So I’ve got 4 links to Marvel comics so far – Agent Carter, Ralph Roberts, Human Torch and the Stark Industries tower.

    • Designed by engineer Bronislav Sigizmundovich Malakhovsky whose son was a cartoonist, if I got this right.

  3. Sorry Marvel fans, but the answer might in fact be SIXTY-EIGHT
    (I don’t think we’ll delve into who owes who ‘one’).

    A. (unidentified so far)
    B. Soyuz Carrier rocket monument – link not evident
    C. Zielfahrzeug 68
    D. San Antonio – location of HemisFair ’68 (World’s Fair)
    E. Roberts Park, Saltaire, UK – 68-pounders?
    F. (unidentified so far)
    G. Rock of Scotland / Carter Bar boundary stone – on the A68 road
    H. Bitexco Financial Tower – 68 floors
    I. Lilit Svangaskarð stadium – home of B68 Toftir
    J. Monument to the 68th New York Volunteer Infantry Regiment
    K. Bell AH1-J Sea Cobra – ordered by the USMC under the AH1-J designation in 1968
    L. Locomotive S.68 (C.68 in cyrillic)

  4. Ahaha – I initially thought ‘Marvel is a bit of a wide-ranging connection for one of these’ but then just kept on finding connections.
