  • Royal Enfield - Single and twin cylinder motorcycle manufacturer from the 1950s. 'Built like a Gun' said the sales blurb, and in fairness they were right, as they used to go bang quite often - usually in spectacular fashion.

  • Harry Enfield - Loadsamoney cnut.
  • Enfield - Town in the county of Middlesex. Yeah, I know Middx. doesn't technically exist anymore, but I'm not playing their silly bloody games. As far as I'm concerned it's in Middlesex. There's a few more dotted about the world too, e.g. The United States - as you would expect. There's also one in Ireland .
