Despite JT's theory that RP may not have been deformed, modern revelations confirm that RP probably was.

Josephine Tey also known as Elizabeth MacKintosh? Her book Daughter of Time is about solving the murder of the Princes in the Tower - I think it exonerates Richard III (Richard Plantagenet)?

Correct. Largely because he has a nice kind face.....in his portraits.

Here's another one about someone with a nice kind face... in his portraits.

BS wasn't born here - but the town claims him, fairly enough, as it was his childhood home.

DN wasn't born here either - but he told everyone, including MP, that he was.

Where am I talking about?

I think it's Kirriemuir. BS is Bon Scott (AC/DC singer) and DN is David Niven. Don't know who MP is - Michael Parkinson?

Well done - all spot on. The Michael Parkinson Show was one of the occasions when wannabe Scot David Niven stated he was born in Kirriemuir, when in fact he was born in London.

Over to you!

Why would BAC and KP (among others) suddenly seem less attractive?

Is it Katie Price and Brendan (?A) Cole doing Celebrity "Who Dares Wins" in Scotland and looking slightly less attractive in the context of extreme SAS selection (as WE might.)

No, BAC and KP aren't human (no jokes please), and BAC isn't quite the correct abbreviation.

Are we looking at Beinn a' Chroinn and Knight's Peak by any chance? Loss of MunroTop status, though which of B a' C's tops is involved I'm not sure.

The BAC I picked was Beinn a' Chlaidheimh, which I think is the most recent Munro to have been downgraded, in 2012 (unless anyone knows different).

Over to you.

Thank you, thought we were after ex Munro tops not ex Munros. :lol:

However, AG rejoices in the title CotN.

Alexander Gordon (4th Duke) was Cock of the North?

Correct, an epithet all heads of Clan Gordon now enjoy. Your go.
