Ten Grand is Buried Here… More clues

Looking at the fine print, you have to be an Australian resident to win. Sooo… bang goes my shot at it.

Meanwhile, here’s the clues I’ve figured out. A quick web search seems to indicate that no-one else has got these yet, so without further ado…

Use a crowbar to open the tun

Use a crowbar = Pry. A tun? Vat. Pry Vat = Private.

Jobiska made a drink for Ian. Or Arthur.

This is from an Edward Lear poem, as has been noted elsewhere on the web:

And his Aunt Jobiska made him drink
Lavender water tinged with pink;
For she said, “The World in general knows
There’s nothing so good for a Pobble’s toes!”

What hasn’t been noted so far, however, is that Arthur Ian Lavender played Private Pike in the BBC sitcom Dad’s Army.

A Pike is also a predatory fish. The map of Sasketchewan also shows a turnpike, but there may be more than one meaning.

GI v Texas Ranger

G.I. Joe v Walker, Texas Ranger.

Joe Walker – Private Joe Walker is another character in the TV-show, Dad’s Army.

There’s a theme here. That theme seems to be Dad’s Army.

… and now I’m waiting for more clues.
