There's a rogue character on the end of the link.

barkis - 25 Dec 2020 09:50:51 (#3 of 299)

2-2 refers to Walter Scott, presumably getting his knighthood.

2-7 could possibly be Cato St. if a )Cato St. is in W2 and b) the Cato Street Conspiracy was 1820.

13-3 is another O'Brien reference but I'm going to have to look up the character's name

dreams99 - 25 Dec 2020 10:07:13 (#10 of 299)

13.1 - Nurse Gladys Emmanuel

dreams99 - 25 Dec 2020 10:07:42 (#11 of 299)

13.2 - possibly Nurse Duckett.

This section could be all nurses.

6to24characters - 25 Dec 2020 10:08:40 (#12 of 299)

If 13-7 is Florence Nightingale, is all of 13 about nurses?

barkis - 25 Dec 2020 10:09:50 (#13 of 299)

15-2 is the worm in the Blake poem.

dreams99 - 25 Dec 2020 10:10:17 (#14 of 299)

5-5 is Dahl isn't it? Fabulous Freddy Fox.

barkis - 25 Dec 2020 10:13:23 (#16 of 299)

15-3 should be slow worm, making 15 about worms. 15-8 I think is Wormwood in the book of Revelation.

TenGorillas - 25 Dec 2020 10:14:52 (#17 of 299)

1.5 Mysterious affair at Styles

2.6 Challenger? there was an Arctic ship by that name but it might have been later

5.2 quince

7.1 Karen Blixen

7.6 Tsavo

12.5 Count of Monte Cristo

12.10 Casanova

16.8 ebola

16.9 black death?

18.9 Parasite the film (but I see someone has got there first!)

solomongursky - 25 Dec 2020 10:17:45 (#18 of 299)

12-9 is The Great Escape but I dunno the name of the camp. Stalag wossname.

dreams99 - 25 Dec 2020 10:19:00 (#19 of 299)

Stalag luft III

barkis - 25 Dec 2020 10:20:15 (#20 of 299)

#17

For 2.6 I'm thinking the 141 years later in a rarified atmosphere may refer to Yuri Gargarin who did his stuff in 1961.
