Not a sequence, just a group: what letter is missing?

C, C, T, T, E, E, M, U, _

Time for a clue?

But the members of the group themselves should provide inspiration!

Apparently you're neither inspired nor amused.

Supposing I'm right here's another challenge:

V, B, F, N, P, V, G, F, P, M, _, _

What are the two missing letters?

Sorry for the delay in posting a clue: I've been away from my machine over the weekend.

The first item in the sequence relates to the year 1924.

Any chance that the following letters would be SLC or Salt Lake City, being the last city to host the Winter Olympics?

Wow, I'd never thought I'd solve one of those challenges! I'm off to bed now, so if anyone else wants to post a new sequence, be my guest!

How about:

B-W, B, B, B, B, H, H, M-WP, LS, NR-W, R-P, S, S, S-A, S-H, ...

It's no sequence, but a group.

I think it must be T for Thuringia (Thüringen), the other Länder of the Federal Republic of Germany being Baden-Württemberg, Bavaria, Berlin, Brandenburg, Bremen, Hamburg, Hesse, Mecklenburg-West Pomerania, Lower Saxony, North Rhine-Westphalia, Rhineland-Palatinate, Saarland, Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt and Schleswig-Holstein

I'm afraid I lost sight of this. They're all connected with JA in the early 19th century.

Well, how about P for the next letter, as in "Persuasion"? Jane Austen novels: "Sense and Sensibility", "Pride and Prejudice", "Mansfield Park", "Emma", "Northanger Abbey" and "Persuasion".
