Call it a draw? If Sgurr has something ready to go then fire ahead. I always need a bit of thinking time to come up with a puzzle.

OK, possibly a quick one.

JH and KS, in that order, share someone in common.

Went for a walk, discovered a band was playing, rushed back home to alert husband and discovered a zoom invite from grandson, so no thinking time.

I wonder if these are places. Could it be a hospital followed by a school?

Is it James(Keir) Hardie founder of the Labour Party and Keir Starmer? I haven't a clue about the person they had in common, (it could be any number of politicians) except the latter was named after the first.

KH, a 'heap', is mentioned in the OS, though there's an element of legend about his alter ego, CR

These are the only K's I can find in the OS and none of them seems to be a heap. unless it is a knob. Is your K that? I can't think what one would be doing coming to Scotland...except by extreme stretch of the imagination, though a Kyle could. Kyle Hutton seems to have been born here.

Sgurr, I believe you are looking at the wrong OS ... :wink:
