Thanks for the gap and help, @Cleoriff, @, but my limited knowledge of Kings, English or otherwise, is limited

Perhaps I can make amends by proffering this King...

Re: THURSDAY QUIZ 6 June 2019

Well done everyone.
I'd like to answer next weeks mystery French question early if possible.

Answer is:

"And after 13 long minutes, they surrendered"

Re: THURSDAY QUIZ 6 June 2019

Well done everyone wink

@viridis  Brilliant and true...rofl

 

@Mi-Amigo  I need to ask if you are in cahoots with @MI5 ??????

 

Yesterday you inferred his favourite football club (Liverpool) could be a topic. Today you state France is next weeks challenge. @MI5  has a second home in France....

All a bit fishy to me...roflLOL

Well done everyone, and I love @viridis answer which, as @Cleoriff said, is so true.

 

Look forward to the question on France which, depending on the question, I may know something or nothing about LOL

Shucks I`ve been sussed. We Liverpool fans have to stick together when we have the Red Army to contend with

 

And anyone who believes that really doesn`t know what @Cleoriff calls [and I admit is] my "weird sense of humour".

All I`ll add is, wait till everyone sees the question!! joy As I said, it is not about the French language.

 

Oh and in two weeks time, I`ve got a much easier question [well some might think so Whistle] and "No" I`m not saying what the subject is yet slight smile
