The defoxing annexe now has a cloakroom and a cloakroom attendant. There’s no charge for leaving coats in the care of Mr. Tipton, but garments may be returned “with cryptic enhancements”. If you don’t want your buttons switched, your sleeves emblazoned, and your pockets invaded I suggest you make use of the row of hooks next to the Battle of Kohima diorama.

Roman is suffering from setter’s block at the moment. He’s tried all the standard cures – ice baths, horseradish tea, lysergic acid diethylamide – yet remains as congested as ever. Thank goodness for understudies. The puzzle below is the work of Ema, a Moravian intern whose hobbies include missing trains, removing ticks, and fashioning beautiful landscape collages out of coloured pencil shavings.
