When the members of London's famed Explorers' Club tell a story, you can expect fascinating tales of action and adventure to issue from their lips. Indeed, the level of racontuering is so high that on a recent Saturday a short-hand stenographer was used to record 5 members in a row, telling of their adventures in five different exotic venues. The resulting transcript from this session would be used to produce the book: Tales of the Wild, which would be used to raise money to pay a debt of honor owed by the Explorers to the village elders of a secluded tribe of albino Tibetan yakherders.
There was Major "Bimbo" Brabazon-Plank, Col. Sir Francis Pashley-Drake, Major Gen. Sir Masterman Petherick-Soames, Major Jimbo Murgatroyd, and Sir Alexander Bassinger. They told tales of adventure in either the Congo, the Lower Zambesi, the Amazon, the South Seas, or the West Indies.
Each of these gentlemen faced some adversary or enemy and had to fight his way free from either a boa constrictor, a gorilla, a man-eating tiger, an alligator, or a tribal-style breach of promise action on behalf of one Princess Watoto. Deep waters, indeed! Please note: one you cannot assume who conquered what where by the adversary's natural habitat, as these Explorers had no compunctions about tackling their adversaries out of context, in zoos. circuses or tourist hotels, if needs be.
Sadly, the short-hand stenographer dropped his notes, shuffling up the facts, and further suffered from that peculiar inability short-hand artists have of being unable to decipher his own hooks and wiggly bits. These 7 clues were all that he could come up with for putting the prose all in order.
Can you, with the help of the clues given, help sort out which Explorer fought off what adversary in which venue, and in what order his story was told?
