The middle lines of the first verse of the UK national anthem WITH MINOR CHANGES give the names of two military characters from which popular book series?

This is a long shot, but the line ‘send her victorious’ gives us hervi. With minor changes that could be Hervey.

Matthew Hervey is the main character in a series of novels by Allan Mallinson about the Napoleonic wars.

I don’t know the books so I can’t confirm if any other characters are in the verses.

Thanks for your help. I think that's a good shout.

Thanks, I’ve had a look and I can find plenty about the plots of the novels but only mention of two other characters, his wife and a superior martinet officer, but neither of them fit in with the verses.

I think you’ll have to read the books to be sure.

@mark noble,
Southampton is so northerly, further north than all of Wales in fact.

It was a engine pm. I thought you might well be ******* about with the necronomicon. I wouldn’t put it past you.

Lord of the Rings was first published in 1954, 54 years after Victoria died. Tolkein would have been 8 when Victoria died.

Still claiming you’re not full of ****?

On the pre-Younger-Dryas (12,800yrs ago) Southampton was, ABSOLUTELY, North of ..... Southerly places... I Thought you were from yorkshire, Cumbria - Ish. Going on accent, alone, that is::
So, Southampton, eh/liverpool-ish - Still Blooming North of Guernsey...!

Forget the 'Necro' stuff - Crowley wasn't a bad fella (Was evoking Negs - To dispel them) Seriously. Do homework.

54 digitised=9 How many RH- Kiddies did Haemo-vic birth.

You assume 'others' study 'witchcraft'? Why?
Do you believe in magic?

Pink Floyd = Magic.... Agree?

@mark noble,
I’m not from Yorkshire. My family are. I’m not, I was born in the Home Counties I hate Yorkshire with a passion.

Most people think I have a London accent. It helps when visiting the smoke.

I don’t assume others practice witchcraft, I thought you might.

Your syntax suggests as much.

I prefer Hawkwind to Floyd.

'I'm' Not from Yorkshire.
'My' family are.
'I' was born......
'I' hate yorkshire.....
Most people (6+Billion?) Think (Ok)
'I' have a London accent. Helps when
'I' visit the 'smoke' (London - To wannabe cockerneys.)
'I' don't assume others....
'I' thought, 'you' might...
'Your' syntax (Bollux word) suggests you 'might'.
'I' prefer Hawkwind to Floyd.

Izzy. You do understand that psychology, sociology, anthro/paleo - ALL ologies Are secondary facets of Ontology?

And I'm DONE with teaching, preaching and New arsehole tearing.

So - 'Southampton Dock' - Rogers Waters. Listen 'Free on Youtube'.
Give Me Your UNADULTERATED feedback, Please?

Have a Brilliant Day

@mark noble,
You ask a load of questions about me then quote personal pronouns back.
I’ve not heard the Waters track. I preferred Syd Barrett.

That unadulterated enough?

I haven't asked anything of you - Other than your opinion of 'Southampton Dock' by Roger Waters.
I just highlighted your neediness for attention - Which outweighs, even the 'Elect' of needifolk, like Chai & Setanta.

Izzy - Don't listen, Do listen, respond, don't.... It's ok.

I'm gonna go listen to some Hawkwind - I'll give my critique, should we encounter one'n'tother agin...

Have it glorious, mucker.

@mark noble,
You’re like a sulky teenager trying to feign disinterest. One thing’s for sure, you really want someone to listen to your record.

You’ve got a brassneck calling anyone else needy.

All your trying to sound erudite and enigmatic just comes across as a bit sad.

Listened to some Hawkwind - I understand your 'Barrett' aclime.

Not impressed by egocentric/glam/prog-rock - Why'd they go 'electro' (Visage-like) in the 80's?

You're From Southampton - Thought you'd like Rogers' 'Storytelling' of how 'Maggie, and her rainsoaked, clinging to her body, silver-frock - Resounded with her 'Waving off' the Arkroyal boys, On their forthcoming war with Argentina...

I'm 'Never' disinterested - Every turned-stone reveals a new environscape.
'Neediness' is fixable, btw.

Have a Lovely Day
