In view of the fact that Sir Henry is still serving the nation beneath the waves somewhere under the mid-Atlantic, it falls upon the landlubbers here in the Grand Lodge in Edinburgh to issue this month's Fairpak quiz. We feel sure that he will raise no objections given our recent increase in staff, technical facilities and accommodation available to Fairpak International. Also, in respect of his rantings over the May edition, we have attempted to make this October version as easy as possible in order to attract even more of you good Flâneurs out there to participate: after all, we didn't go and purchase all this infernal equipment for nothing. So, here goes then.
Essentially, there are only two questions this month. Beneath, you will find a grand total of twenty-five illustrations. All but two have a common factor which links them.
Q1: Who are the odd ones out? The names of these individuals must also be provided.
Q2: What links the other twenty-three? Similarly, the names of all the other twenty-three must also be provided in order to obtain full marks.
Hint: Twenty-four is divisible by the number eight.
Don't forget, of course, that fastest finger rule still applies. Good luck to you all. Oh, and by the way, despite that there are only two questions, don't forget that twenty-five marks are on offer for providing the correct names. Jolly hunting.
