Cockney Rhyming Slang Quiz

Inspired by my students not knowing what a 'number two' was, I decided to create this little quiz on what is known, in the UK, as Cockney Rhyming Slang. These are expressions that have a rhyming element with the target word.

A Cockney is a native of east London, specifically someone born within earshot of the Bow Bells, rang from the Church of St Mary-le-Bow. Some people say they were used by 'Cockney Market Traders' as a secret language between each other to hide their converstions from their customers.

Whatever the roots of Cockney Rhyming Slang it makes for a fun quiz!

How many can you guess?
