Difficult! I never seem to remember this kind of stuff, though I DID know that George VI was 'Bertie' so, I guess, I get half a point!

However, as someone who is colourblind (and, therefore, very likely to confuse purple and crimson) I think question 8 is a bit dodgy...

But then it's all very strange, really... I mean, how can ANYONE mistake a squirrel for a camel...?

I got most of them, but I feel obliged to point out that the Canary Islands are in the Atlantic, not the Pacific.

I only got two of them - King Bertie and the Isle of Dogs!
