I work on the 7th Floor of Walker House in Liverpool. The companion building is Horton House. In the tunnels underneath is the HQ for the RN in the Battle of the Atlantic.

(Sounds of lightbulbs going off all round the Forum.*)

I got in the lift with the Chief Exec yesterday. He looked at me and said "You there! Peasant! Do you know why these buildings are called Walker and Horton?"  Well, 7 floors is just not long enough! I have a biography of Walker queued up on my Kindle.
 



*For those whose bent does not extend. I'm feel sorry for you. For those of you not into your WWII RN, Max Horton was the Admiral who was in command of great chunks of the UK response to the U-boat threat, and Johnnie Walker was somewhat of a fearsome U-boat killer.

Careful there! CEOs ask questions like that to show how clever they are, not you.

Yeah. I know.   Sad
 
But I'm such a wargamer that I just couldn't resist.

Then there were the videos that LindyBeige did from here ...

I was doomed from the start.

I knew a Colin Hedge-Cutter once, he was very incisive in a closed environment but slowed down in open country.

Your man cave has two 5x9 ping pong tables set up that have never been used for ping pong.   Cheesy

I can empathise with that one as walking, including battlefield walking, is my other major hobby. I have also had that experience whilst travelling from Formby to Liverpool on Merseyrail. Behind Fort Crosby, just before Hall Road station, there is a wide expanse of farmland up towards Little Crosby and Blundell Hall - a marvellous field of fire if Jerry had landed on that part of the coast. It Reminds of the field of fire from St Marie aux Chenes to St.Privat (no idea how to get accents on this computer).
