Yours looks better, Rambler. Presumably Suki can take her pick.

Very many thanks for your help ab and rambler. Only trouble is ab 44 is only 8 letters!

CULVERIN was a gun, but I would have thought it was post-medieval

There's a difference of opinion in the GOOGLE REFERENCES ABOUT WHETHER IT WAS MEIEVAL OR NOT - 15TH CENTURY seems to be the earliest. It was a sort of cannon (sorry about the caps!)

I'm sure you're right, chrise - better than sending cullions up top or asking the scullion to pour boiling water on the enemy.

The scullion with the boiling water might be more reliable than an early cannon, though!
