Cryptic Question

Right – last week’s was : -

A roman double cross: Kelly’s ocular equipment: the age of suffrage. What comes next ? Which of these could bring you to a port in Asia ?

X is the roman numeral for 10 – double it and you have 20. In Bingo, Kelly’s Eye is the call for Number 1. In the UK , 18 is the legal voting age. Working clockwise from 12 o’clock, these are the first 3 numbers on a standard dartboard. 4 comes next, and strictly speaking, any of the numbers can give you SHANGHAI, as long as you score single , double and triple of the same number with 3 darts.

Now try this one : -

In English – boar carbuncles. In French – good sticks. In German – a spoonerism of storm and strife. What are they all, and which one did Leontes’ wife attend ?

Hooray - I can actually do one!

Hermione attended Hogwarts (not Beauxbatons or Durmstrang).
