KEEPING UP APPEARANCES

What do the letters "FH" stand for on Onslow's cap?

According to sources, "FH" stands for Fulton Hogan, a New Zealand airport development, management, and technology company. The hat was given to Geoffrey Hughes (Onslow) by an employee of the company while he was visiting that country.

How long has Diana been in the nursing home?

None of our sources gives any information about Diana's arrival at Bayview. Our impression is that she has been there awhile but not a very long time before Tom arrives.
