(whisper) the white king...

I would go for Charles I, there's a bit of a surfeit of Churchill at the moment and it might confuse your memories of the Normandy Campaign (not that you're easily confused of course, I shouldn't project my problems). (I assume you've read Veronica Wedgwood's books?)

There I came across a 'Yerdy-Derble' Scandie murder mystery which, of course, I started to read. And yes, you're right, my brow is somewhat lower than my big toe!

Well, I see the whisper campaign didn't work!

No, no, Whiters, 'twill be next on my list, I promise, but these bloody Scandie thrillers always tempt me, er, that's their books, you understand, not their ladies! I have already primed and loaded it in my Kindle and I am learning the words of the old song, which originally referred to Anne Bolyn:

"With 'is 'ead tucked underneath 'is arm,
'E walks the Bloody Tower ..."
