There's a story (quite possibly apocryphal) that doctors in East Anglia would have the abbreviation NFN on patients' notes, which translated as 'Normal For Norfolk'.

I knew it. This board has been taken over by alien life forms called the EastAnglianTouristBordistas. If any other human is left, remember to cover your head in tinfoil.

Silence! Resistance is futile!

We are not from East Anglia but from the Planet 4Yla'n-Toh, Perseid System, Sausage Nebula.

If we WERE from East Anglia we would know whether it comprises merely:

* Cambridgeshire
* Essex
* Suffolk
* Norfolk
and
* Lincolnshire

as your earth-source
http://www.england.thecountry.com/eastanglia.htm
claims

or whether it also includes:

* Huntingdonshire
but not
* Essex
and only the southern part of
* Lincolnshire

as your other earth-source
http://www.nationmaster.com/encyclopedia/East-Anglia
claims

or

* Cambridgeshire
* Essex
* Suffolk
* Norfolk
* Hertfordshire
* Bedfordshire
but not
* Lincolnshire
or
* Huntingdonshire

as your yet another earth-source
http://www.picturesofengland.com/mapofengland/east-anglia-map.html
claims.

We wish to know the answer!

The Wash is the square-mouthed estuary in East Anglia, where Norfolk meets Lincolnshire. It is the largest estuary in the United Kingdom, fed by the Rivers Witham, Welland, Nene and Great Ouse.

http://www.nationmaster.com/encyclopedia/The-Wash

Quote:
The most famous incident associated with the Wash is the loss of King John's royal treasure. According to contemporary chronicles, John was travelling from Spalding in Lincolnshire to King's Lynn in Norfolk, but unwisely sent his baggage train, including his crown jewels, along the coast road, which would only have been passable at certain times of day. The horse-drawn carts moved too slowly for the incoming tide, and many were lost. The present-day location is supposed to be somewhere near Sutton Bridge, on the River Nene.

The Stranglers are about to release a new album called Norfolk Coast. I don't know why this strikes me as comic, but it does.

Just interested me that of all the cars that could be named in honour of the majestic fens ......I mean Ford did a Granada, didn't they? And a Mustang? And isn't there a sporty little thing called an Ibitha? But an Anglia????Still, its clearly the chariot of choice with our Viking cousins.
