No, your bloody Boys.

If they grow up to be buccaneers, where will you find them?

Let's try,  "Ease of addition."

First thing that popped into my head was Addington?

Not Addington.

Having thought about it overnight, I think my clue is too vague, and I don't want the quiz to bog down.

I'll re-submit it as, " Easy-fit Accessory."

Still quite cryptic IMHO (But that's good-gives the brain a bit of a workout while staring at a computer all day !) "Accessory" could be an item of clothing or something added to a car,
I'll go with the clothing and suggest Cardigan

Bolt-on ?

Alamein Line took the right option and went with the automotive idea.

Bolton is correct.

Alamein Line now settles comfortably into the driving seat.

"Valvegear"


Thanks , Valvegear

However , as Alamein Line does not drive , it is doubtful he would be comfortable in an automotive driving seat   Shocked

Sangar?

Not Sangar , but good answer  Smile

I have an idea that Fritz is what South Aussies call DEVON?
  Alamein_Line Chief Commissioner

It is indeed !

Sometimes also known as Fritz sausage , so Sangar was appropriate

Looks like this one has stalled a bit so a hint to get things going.
Hint: This footballer has not played recently,but is remembered for a particular achievement.

I suspect it's Buckley.
  NIGELINOZ Assistant Commissioner

Location: Tallangatta,Vic,
No not Buckley,remember not a recent player.
General Hint: I was 934 feet above sea level,141¼ miles from Melbourne and the strange thing was that the railway station was built prior to there being a large enough town to support it.
The players name is only part of the answer but the answer is only one word.

The problem with giving height and/or distance: it ceases to be cryptic.

I know nothing about football, but two players who were famous for sinking it through the 'hi diddle diddle' were:
Bulldog player 'Great Western'
and St Kilda full-forward 'Saint James'

I could get to work with curves & grades, but is there any point?

Icould give endless cryptic clues Roderick and have the quiz bogged down for days as has happened on the suburban cryptic quiz a few times recently.
I'm only trying to make it fair enough so that those who may have an idea of the answer but not positive submit a guess instead of leaving it.

I'll start a curves & grades hunt.
Nobody beat me to 'Swan Hill'.

I lost track of club names when Collingwood was sold to President Marcos, and was retitled 'Manila Folders'.
