Tough but interesting quiz. The E clue is written in German, and there are a couple of German pieces in the answers too - in English, Baffin Bay is two words, and dates like 21 June are written without a full stop after the number. Also, for G, also accept Godthaab as a type-in?

Thanks for the notice! Luckily #E apparently was easy enough without the question for everyone had guessed it. Fixed the things you mentioned.
