Iliff

Origin

Booking error at Thrales restaurant in Lichfield

M & N – early 1980s
Mark & Naomi

Notes

It’s likely that the booking was written down as ILISS – because F=S on a poor phone line – then someone “corrected” the L to a 4.

At least it was more entertaining than Lliff, CLiff, Fliff, Hill, Iliffe, Iliss, Illif and all the other common buggerations
