have obviously now got no 68 but still struggling with the others.

Is 16 Apache and if so how does this fit as a villain?

Cant get Peelers as early policemen.

hi

Peelers

nickname of the policemen in the Metropolitan Police set up by Robert Peel ....

if you look in a good dictionary (Chambers) you will find that another definition of \'Peelers\' is plunderers (ie a Thoroughly Bad Lot)
