Puzzle Corner 39 – answer

The question posed in the last issue was ‘Can you name the three people commemorated by blue plaques affixed to buildings in Bohemia?’ The answers are:
1. Author Noel Streatfield (1895 to 1896) at St Peter’s vicarage in Cornfield Terrace.
2. Soldier George Monger, who was awarded the Victoria Cross at the siege of Lucknow at age 17, the plaque being at 25, Tower Road.
3. Author Robert Tressell (real name Robert Noonan) whose novel The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists was written in Bohemia at 241, London Road from 1906 to 1910.
No correct solutions were received, so the £10 prize offered will be carried forward to today’s puzzle.
