OK, I'll give it a go. I can't figure out 'K for troops' though.

Hay for horses, Beef or mutton, Sea for islanders, Deaf or dumb, Heave a brick, Effervescence, Chief of Police, Age fourteen, Ivor Novello, Jaffa oranges, Hell for leather, Emphasis, Envelope, Over the garden wall, Pee for relief, Queue for a bus, Half a mo', It's for you, Tea for two, You for me, Viva la France, Double you for a bob, Eggs for breakfast, Wife or mistress, Zephyr motor car.


TE ADDS - Seaforth Highlanders and Kaffir Troops (whoops that dates it....)

Ah, I should have known. I thought 'Sea for islanders' was bit weak as well.

Zephyr motor cars dates us a bit as well. Sometimes it's nice to able to get your own back on the younger generation, so here are a couple of tips that work a treat:-

(1) TV sets that have buttons on the front and no remote. Youngsters can't figure these out at all. It's amazing -- they'll spend hours trying to find the remote.

(2) The Early Learning Centre sells colourful toy telephones for toddlers. With a dial. The poor buggers have no idea what it's supposed to be, and no wonder really, as it's about thirty years since they made phones with dials.

I can't figure out 'K for troops' though

KFOR Troops = Kosovo Force

Oi! Nah! It's C for swimming; H for train (a chuffer train); K for restaurant (cafe, pronounced kayf, for non chirpy Cockernee readers); V for Espana.

There must be no modernisation; a pox on K for troops!

P for annoy, Q for a pee, V for Las Vegas (oops, modernisation - an Elvis reference) are variants.

TE- K for Troops is Victorian (think Kaffir) so yah boo sucks! K for Restuarant is Tommy Steele era V for Espana even later. P for Annoy?

It's C for Thighlanders, please (Seaforth Highlanders). And K for Restaurant.

'V for Espana' isn't later; it's literate. 'Viva La France' is like saying 'Long Liva Da Queeno.' It's 'Vive la France', though God knows why anyone would want to say it.

P for annoy = Peeve or annoy.

I concede the Kaffir Troops, but I prefer' K for restaurant', and not on PC grounds. The double 'f' shortens the 'a' in 'Kaffir'.
