continuing the despeerately unlikely suggestions:

14. I am sure that no referee took bungs - but Keith or any other Cooper might have found a use for them, though I'm scraping the barrel there..

04. I assume that Wiseman is too obvious and know of no Mr Sage or Mr Solomon. A Don might be learned, but not necessarily wise (some seem anything but!) whereas Wiley suggests cunning, not always with the wisest intent.

21. John would have to bring kit, watch, whistle etc, none of which help. When he got back home, he would need a Key, however. Could it be as simple as that?

17. What might a Butcher sell? A top end one,dealing in game, might sell Alan Teale; a tripe butcher could offer Eric Read, and a scrounger with a dog might be able to pick up Alan Bone, but I have no confidence in any of these ideas.

4, 14 & 21 incorrect, 17 correct (A Bone)

To cut down your searching, all answers are A-H

Aha, I hadn't spotted that.

That rules out Mr Snowman for 20. My only thought htere still applies however, but only if JT went to Sunday School and learned a certain hymn. Arthur and Robbie might fit with
 "As pants the Hart for cooling stream."
 I suspect however that they will also prove incorrect!

This is turning into a supreme example of drip-feeding - and I am proving the supreme drip.

50. Gilbert Bowman would have been at Agincourt, but disqualified for the crime of being Scottish. Upton offers A A Archer - but that is unlikely to be the answer, as nobody other than JT would have heard of him. Both of the above, though would have required someone to keep them supplied with arrows, so perhaps there was a Fletcher there as well.

This update is most welcome and helpful, and we have also already got Hedges, Cussons and Chamberlain.

I might have ticked Cussons incorrectly
Hedges is wrong but does relate to the answer
Missed Chamberlain

Hmm. Interesting.

If Dennis Hedges limits him, could this be a crafty reference to Arthur Edge, another sadly taken too soon by illness.

40. Schloss Heilbrunn "sounds like" Terry Heilbron.

39. Are we far enough down the Rhine to find ourselves in Holland?

26. If it is not Lol Cussons, the next in line would be Lol Douglas.
