T.S. I think his name was Harold Newgard, or something like that?

I remember reading about the achievement somewhere in a book about heroes.

Is it someone who loves rain? Because a pluviometer measures rain fall. I'm sad because I've got a weather station in the garden. :oops:

Tina,

Perth was named by (I think) Governor Stirling, after his home town in Scotland.

When I first came to the West I lived in Stirling Road which ran off Stirling Highway! - quite a popular name! :D

I guess Tina has not had a chance to respond to my answer so if you do not mind I will set the next question and apologies if I was wrong with my answer about Governor Stirling but at least the thread will start again.

Who or what was/were Pip, Squeak and Wilfred?

Yes please Lily..the elephant is a lovely creature, very family orientated, vegetarian, and always looking out for their own :)
When near the end of life, they won't burden the herd, but go off to an isolated spot to fall asleep Awww! (Elephants graveyard) :(

I don't think it's a Hippo, I was thinking of something very small, like the complete opposite but with tusk teeth. I'm stumped T.S :D
