The Foxer

Roman's 1/16 Meccano model of a Mulberry Harbour has barked its last shin. You'll now find it in the pond beside the defoxing annexe rather than in the defoxing annexe itself. My Chief Foxer Setter assures me the structure will take the weight of a 1/16 RC Sherman tank but until I've finished DD-ing my Tamiya M4 that claim will remain untested.

“BCT RNCML”

The last five entries in the list – those marked with asterisks – are especially fiendish. Not only are they vowel-less they have also been anagrammed.
