The official AHF Allies & Neutral States quiz thread

Post by Marcus » 31 Jan 2005 19:12

We've had several different quizes running here in the forum for a while with great success and this new section has been open for a while without one, so I'm starting one here too.

The rules are very simple:
The first one to post the correct answer to a question, posts a new question (must be on the WW2 Allies or neutral states) and so on.

The insignia above was worn by the US 45th Infantry Division until sometime 1933. Later they changed their insignia to the indian Thunderbird-symbol, thus the division was given the nick-name "Thunderbird-Division".

No.
The flag in the centre in the background should be able to give you an indication from which country he's from.

Looks like a SNCAO CAO-200 of which about 12 were built, circa 1939.

Okay . . .

Define these terms:

BGCAP
BLACKJACKJCAP
DADCAP
DCAP
DUMBOCAP
JACKCAP
MOUSETRAP
NIGHTCAP
RAPCAP
RELCAP
RESCAP
SPOTCAP
SUBCAP
TOMCAT
WATCHDOG

There's 15, so I guess probably 12 right would be a correct answer.

Extra credit . . . who, specifically, dreamed up most of these terms and during what period of time.

Regards,

Rich

I presume that all these terms are WW2 related?

Does CAP stand for Combat Air Patrol, and that words ending with CAP are different types of CAP?. Such as SubCAP being Submarine Comabt Air Patrol!

Also given that its been 3 days some help maybe in line to keep things rolling along

I think you are correct about this Andy H. Here are some others found at: http://www.hazegray.org/faq/#mil bottom of the page.

BGCAP=battleship group combat air patrol
DADCAP=dawn and dusk combat air patrol
RESCAP=rescue combat air patrol

Maybe someone else can build upon these and Andy H.'s information to create a correct answer. I have the feeling I should know or remember the creator of these terms and the key to finding the answer.
