General:
The "Hand in Glove" is a reference to the glove trade of Yeovil. The train 70030 is "William Wordsworth" (thus the daffodils) and RB L EB refers to Robert and Elizabeth Browning. These are illustrations of poetry mentioned in the text. The foxglove is again about the glove trade. One of the main industries of Yeovil is Westland Helicopters - the wasps refer to these as does the Scout badge (one of their models is the Scout). There is a main plant in Yeovil for Unigate (later Horlicks) - thus the milk. The pile of books will be understood by those who look up the address of the publisher. They are at Sparkford, just north of Yeovil. In the text, the part about having a one track mind when it comes to books refers to the single track part of the railway which passes beneath the publishers' windows.
Key:
There is NO roman numeral in this picture. Therefore there is no word to find on this page. The "red herring/fishy" nature of this page is emphasised by the references to trout, herons and fishing.
Boy's Name:
The original measure of a yard was from a king deciding that the measure was equal to the length from his nose to the end of his outstretched hand. A yard is less than a metre and a yard is where trains are kept. The answer to this clue is YARD.
Article:
Liverpool's most famous insects were, of course, The Beatles. Their residential vessel was a submarine (we all live in a yellow submarine). In GOSPORT was once a Royal Railway Station, where Queen Victoria embarked for her holiday home on the Isle of Wight. Also at GOSPORT is the Royal Navy Submarine Museum.
