@MI5 and @Cleoriff 

from your reactions, I take it that this quiz is going to be a bit of a challenge?

 

Look forward to pm with your answers any time after 12 noon today, and you have plenty of thinking time...

Good luck.

That is very true @Cleoriff 

 

Don`t forget it is the Beatles album [not Sgt Pepper] on a 1st class stamp
