Derby Worlds Show is this Weekend.

A reminder that the show is not at Castle Donnington this year, but at Bruntingthorpe between Rugby and Leicester, near Lutterworth. 

http://www.derbyworlds.com  featuring Baccus 6mm and others.

That'll be Derby, Leicestershire then, as opposed to Leicester, Derbyshire?

Actually, I think it's all part of the ancient kingdom of Mercia. As long as Peter and the Baccusmobile can find it I will be happy.

It's a Midlands thing, I believe. We have Warwick University which is in Coventry about 10 miles north. Coventry University used to be known as Lanchester Polytechnic. Lanchester* is in County Durham.

So Derby Worlds in Leicestershire  is about normal for hereabouts.

* Actually named after Frederick Lanchester

No wonder the 5th Columnists made so little progress.

Any 5th columnists would have been rounded up and sent for trial at Warwick Crown Court.

Which, naturally,  is in Leamington Spa. You just can't make this stuff up.
