1. Whitehouse :cry: (Required answer is more specific)
2. Evans :D
3. George Villiers, Duke of Buckingham possibly :D
4. Sean Penn :D
5. Kenneth Williams :cry: (Not KW but he did die later in the same year)
6. North Holland :D
7. Angelo :D
8. Mike Baldwin :D
9. Lots of them! :cry: (True the sought after one is in Wiltshire)

I did say it was a little tougher so six is a great start

Charles Hawtrey :D

Westbury :D

So just number 1 which requires identification of exactly where in the White House Marine One lands and the Connection.

1 must be South Lawn then but I'm baffled as to the connection....

South Lawn is correct :D

The key words are:

1 SOUTH LAWN
2 EVANS
3 VILLIERS
4 PENN
5 HAWTREY
6 HOLLAND
7 ANGELO
8 BALDWIN
9 WESTBURY

The connection is educational.

No wonder I thought it was difficult - still I suppose if you're a member of the Shadow Cabinet the connection is quite easy...
