I said metropolitan and unitary authorities can be allowed ( new fangled government ), and we can make an exemption for Lands End and outlying named islands too ) I get lost in wales , and this area should have been its own county in my opinion .

I believe the unitary authority for that area is Rhondda Cynon Taff, but good luck finding that on a record...

Wight is a bit odd , Island (So allowed under criteria ) and has been a sort of county council - I think its really counted as Hampshire most of the time.

A few more from the Principality - assuming a bit of leeway allowed for spellings and missing "shires". I was tempted to start a thread for "Welsh around the world" after looking up a couple of these - and may still do (could get pretty tortuous with mutations and the like).

Love the Welsh ones , after what we English did to place names suitable variations always welcome along with any in variations of gaelic/welsh.

It's already here, but a certain Northern Irish County crops up quite a lot.

Once - easy



Twice by the Quo



Thrice by Sylvester (among others)



But to cap it all, it appears here no less than six times on the same label....
