I want to mention someone in an adventure, but his identity may possibly set alarm bells ringing with players who know a little British history, so I want to conduct a quick poll:

WITHOUT LOOKING ON-LINE OR IN ANY OTHER HISTORICAL REFERENCE

Do you know who Horatio Bottomley was?

Yes
3(14.3%)
Not sure but I think so
4(19.0%)
No
14(66.7%)

If the answer was "Yes" or "Not sure" are you British?

Yes
7(100.0%)
No
0(0.0%)

If you have looked him up after answering, were you right?

Yes
4(57.1%)
No
3(42.9%)

What publication, if any, would you associate with him?




LATER EDIT: Many thanks, looks like some Brits will know, so I'd better not name him. Fortunately only one person knew about the specific publication I was worried about, so I think I can mention that. Many thanks to all who commented.
