    What be this one?

    Hint: The Brits would probably have the best show at picking this one.

    <img src=/S/woops.gif border=0 alt=woops width=58 height=36> Should have pointed that out - the metal cylinder is just a display stand. Thanks Skitter, but it's not <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">an anchor. Hint 2: much smaller than an anchor (or an elephant) <img src=/S/pinkelefant.gif border=0 alt=pinkelefant width=20 height=20>.</span hide>

    Nope, sorry. Maybe a timely hint is in order: WHO owns it is the key.

    Don't know Jezza. Even though that does sound quite appropriate for this item, I would doubt if the similarity is deliberate.

    Re: What be this one?

    Well I would hazard a guess and say it is something <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">nautical</span hide> and something to do with <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Canons----something to do with the fuse</span hide>

    One of these <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold"> Canons </span hide>, perhaps? <img src=/S/cool.gif border=0 alt=cool width=15 height=15>
    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Noun

    Re: What be this one?

    Well done Leif. My timely hint must have paid off. Of course, you won't remember, but when I gave you chocy yesterday it threw your concentration and you kept getting the answer wrong after that. Sorry mate, but you blew your chances in a parallel universe.
