We almost managed to get number 7 between us last week..! I did better than this week anyway.

1. Gnocchi I expect.

3. Clouds.

4. I should know that... either China or India? I can't remember if the latter would have joined independently of the British Empire or not. Or maybe it's something less obvious - Indonesia?

I could try to guess at the rest but won't.

I don't know enough to have a reliable guess but a couple of them (In Flanders Fields and Not Waving But Drowning) are narrated from the point of view of somebody who's dying, I think.
