Friday Foxer #95

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.

    • Manhood peninsula (“And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks / That fought with us upon Saint Crispin’s day.”

  1. That train station is driving me mental – a station with 6 platforms that has services to Loughborough/London and Leeds, there can’t be that many of those and I must have looked at dozens.

  2. L: The bus is Your Gateway to North Norfolk, but finding a flyover in Norfolk isn’t easy!
    H: Looks like the Austrian or German lakes by the guy’s hat at the table, although Germans do like to visit Italy!
    C: Pub name looked like the Crown or Sun Inn, but no luck on either

  3. Wonder if it’s anything to do with 60s/70s British cars?

    Anglia, Talbot?

    Or Ford Meteor, Ford Anglia?

    • I’ve got some answers to fit “Band of Brothers” TV mini-series.
      OK, two so far.
      Grand Hotel Giessbach = filming location
      St Crispin’s Day speech from Henry V = origin of title

    • More ‘St Crispin’s Day speech from Henry V’, then?
      Sample quote:
      “Familiar in his mouth as household words—
      Harry the King, Bedford and Exeter,
      Warwick and Talbot, Salisbury and Gloucester”

      ETA: Didn’t have Bedford Mobile Control Tower when I wrote the above, which is in it’s favour. Don’t seem to be able to wrangle Rising Sun in, though.

  4. About The Rising Sun, it’s kind of implausible but it’s on Tiptoe road:

    He that outlives this day, and comes safe home,
    Will stand a tip-toe when this day is nam’d

    There’s also a mention of “flowing cups” that may be related to D.

  5. K. Fokker F28 FELLOWSHIP – a lot of looking at tailplanes today, and it has the sort of windows as in Fokker designs (80 and 100 as well).
    “We would not die in that man’s company
    That fears his fellowship to die with us.”

    Theater Alam Baturraden, cental Java, used as a movie theatre,109.2291693,3a,49y,303.91h,86.69t/data=!3m7!1e1!3m5!1se8W2ovTjunlAshnXU0lRGg!2e0!!7i16384!8i8192

  6. The way our foxers jump on Roman’s riddles reminds me of how piranhas presumably pounce on porkchops. Impressive work, gang!
