1. Weapons and ammo store.

2. North London football club, so-named because of their origins as the workers' team at the Royal Arsenal in Woolwich. The Gunners hold the record for the longest uninterrupted period in the English top flight and are the only side to have completed a Premier League season unbeaten. Variously and invariably reputed to be lucky, boring and "establishment", their most positive characteristic is a dauntless determination to kick 11 kinds of shit out of Manchester United at every opportunity. Traditional local rivals are Tottenham Hotspur; Chelsea are also regarded with disgust but the curious empathy between Gooners and West Ham supporters remains something of a mystery.
