Geo is right, not George though.....

Not the name of a specific headland but a different synonym to the ones you mentioned
Geoff Capes.

Bits of the clue look like an anagram of Torres.

I wonder if our absent friends still read the thread.

I'm off on holiday on Saturday so I think a clue is now called for:

Footballer.

Not Torres scorer - but see above it is a footballer.

I think it's Henrik Larsson but we're missing an 's' from the anagram fodder?

Going anywhere nice on holiday Ig?

Oh dear.

I thought it was two r's and one s.

You're right of course - first time I've come up with a complete anagram - and I cock it up.

Off to oz for a month - leave tomorrow.

Wow! Have a great time

Nothing in front of the tree, so Hitler didn't look both ways

Correct!

Nothing = FA
(goes in front of) tree = yew
Hitler doesn't look both ways......both ways are L for left and R for right......remove L and R from Hitler and it gives you HITE

FA-ye w-hite

Pretty tough, I must admit....I wouldn't have got it!!
