My wife has come up with a brilliant suggestion. It wasn't that either but it's a good answer, so if the memory continues to play up I'll pretend that was it.

hi

I have remembered the original 5 P S and I think it is a reasonable challenge.

Clue: once again, my avatar provides a hint.

You British chaps and your measurements!

That was an easy one. I could make it lots more challenging if you want.

btw They also use these measures in the USA.

So even my second guess about 5 P S isn't correct? Bummer...

Thank you for the compliment on the idiom. Yes,I found out that the US uses a different than you. Yours is the imperial pint. But it wasn't easy without the beer help.

Do you have any more?

OK. Here are some of those crazy British measurements. Expect that they are tough! (I have written them down so I won't forget.)

6 F in a F

4 G in a P

1 A was the A of L that could be P in 1 D with 1 O

5 S is 1 E, 2 E, ... 5 E.

480 G of G makes 1 T O

Happy googling!

hi Stefy,

That's brilliant. And I thought number 3 would be hard!

What did you google? "Crazy British Measurements"?

Bet that gave you them all.

No,I had to make a separate search for every of them.I still have 4 left.The five values are confusing me greatly.

Three was easy when I noticed the first A.
