Galahad Threepwood wished to devote a chapter of his Memoirs specifically to the festivities of Dec 31st, 1899; for London was not sleeping that night and the turn-of-the-century revels were fraught with incident. He recalled five anecdotes, involving Tubby Parsloe-Parsloe (later Sir Gregory P-P), Percy Craye (now Lord Worplesdon), Mugsy Bostock (Sir Aylmer Bostock), himself (Gally Threepwood), and Barmy Twistleton (now Lord Ickenham).
On the evening that Big Ben boomed in the new century, one of these chaps was leading a conga dance through Covent Garden, one was attempting to swan dive off the Tower Bridge, one had hopped onstage at a musichall and kidnapped the leading lady of a musical revue, one had climbed the statue of Eros in Picadilly Circus and crowned it with a tophat, and one was making book on a rather lively makeshift dog-race behind the Pelican Club.
The next morning, Galahad reports, the various young men all felt the effects of their over-indulgences, and one by one they appeared at the Pelican on the morning of January 1st, 1900, calling for various remedies to treat their throbbing heads. One called for strong boiled coffee, one tried a tomato juice garnished with Worcestershire, one had a warm bottle of stout, one tried cod liver oil, and one, rather desperately, consumed a packet of an experimental powder he'd been given by a German chappie named Felix Hoffman - something called "aspirin". The victims made their appearance at one hour intervals, beginning at 9 am (wow!) and continuing through 1 pm.
Because Galahad had been a participant as well as chronicler, he finds his memory of the facts (including the account of his own activities) are a tithe of what he needs for a coherent account. Only these eleven clues remain as to who did what, and how they treated the resulting hangover. Can you help Gally sort it out for his memoirs?
