    Just spotted a typo in question 2 "Which king unveiled the Victorial memorial (in London)?" I've changed it to read "Which king unveiled the Victoria memorial (in London)?", how come I check through the post and these errors escape me. But enough of my prattling I'm sure you'll all do extremely well at answering these questions as the standards of the answers in the previous quizzes has been extremely high, the main thing is you have fun
