Over the twelve days of Christmas 2003, our guest-quiz questions were set by Hans Teutiger from Stuttgart, an autograph-hunter with an unrivaled knowledge of Procol gigs down the years. Please read his final account below, from which you will be easily able to work where and when he got the autograph he describes.

12) Back in my hometown, less as twelve Months ago, with even a new Procol albumm in my pocket once more, and who could ever have thought of it! 23 songs in the concert, a magic night recorded for Radio in addition, and songs like War is Not Healthy that we Germans delight to hear with Iraki conflict on our minds.

You have been making a note of all the places and the dates that Hans has been describing day by day – yesterday's puzzle is here – and now is the time to convert that information into a one-word answer to send to 'Beyond the Pale', and claim your choice of our fab prizes.
How to win ... read carefully!
Each setlist you have 'collected' contains a little 'thank-you' to the person who sent it in – (thanks, Emilia) – like that.
