      Second Boer War is probably right.

      4. Townsend Act – no Americans knew that, surprising.

      6. British East India Company.

    1. 800-1806, 1870-1918.

    2. 1792-1804, 184-1851.

    3. First product of Carters, before they made it big with the ‘Little Liver Pills’.
    Was then sold and re-marketed as ‘Vindaloo’. Goes well with Rump.

    4. I’m afraid I couldn’t say, on a family blog.

    5. The British discovered another Colony where they fertilised the soil rather than ruling it.

    6. The incumbent management, over dietary matters.

    7. A quality classification for brandy, approximately equivalent to ‘paint stripper’. It was also a Dutch pronunciation of ‘East India Company’
