General James Wolfe, who commanded the British Forces
at Quebec against the French and won a great victory
at the cost of his life,
from the top of the hill
The donkeys at Duke Humphrey Way.
Humphrey, Duke of Gloucester enclosed Greenwich Park and had a tower which was demolished to make way for the Royal Observatory.
'To dine with Duke Humphrey' was an Elizabethan saying used
by poor people to avoid mentioning
that they did not have the money to pay for food.
At dinnertime they would excuse themselves
by saying they would be eating with the Duke.
I am indebted to Wikipedia for this piece of information
although it does rather bring to mind a game called 'Call my Bluff'.
