It was an Italian airship, the only nation to use airships besides Germany, but instead of derigables, they were semi-derigibles. Used on large scale only during the first years of Italian involvement because they were soon replaced by the excellent caproni bombers. It was shot down while having trouble in bad weather on a return journey from bombing the AH Whitehead torpedo factory at Fiume

No one seems to be able to get this one :cry: It was the Città di Ferrara

New Question:
At the battle of Limanova-Lapanov, which Hungarian Lieutenant General left his post gaurding the Carpathian mountain passes and attacked, thus preventing Brusilov's prepared counter-attack on Limanova and crushing the Russian 3rd army's left flank.
Image
After Limanova, the siege of Przemysl ended with a Russian victory. Przemysl had been thought to be the gateway to Hungary, but thanks to this man it wouldn't be for Brusilov and his Russians.

Hi CJ,

Is this the person you want? Svetozar Boroević (or Borojević) von Bojna (December 13, 1856 – May 23, 1920) was a successful defensive military leader in the Austro-Hungarian Army and the first non-German field marshal in the Austro-Hungarian Empire.

Which high scoring Austrian ace, aided by five other prisoners, escaped a Montenegrian POW camp by stealing the Montenegrian Prince Nikolous' car and driving through the frontlines?

Hi Savoia,

Can you provide a hint? It looks a bit like the Lorraine Cross to me.

Hi Rob....here goes a few clues....

It's Hungarian.
Founded 1920 by Count Teleki
Abolished 1945 (Ibelieve re instituted now)
The award of the order confered a hereditary title (the same name as the order).

Hope that helps.... :)
