The official AHF WW1 quiz thread

Post by Marcus » 20 Jan 2004 21:12

The quiz threads we've had running in the Lounge for a while has been a great success, so I think it is time to get one started in this section too.
The rules are very simple:
The first one to post the correct answer, posts a new question (must be on the First World War) and so on.

Naughty, that's jumping the gun. Got to wait for Kaan's reply, can't go making more questions yet. If you answer the question correctly, then you get to put the next one up.

Was he Hüseyin Rauf, who signed the Armistice with the Allies on October 30, 1918? But I don't think he was a general in the Turkish Army, he was a diplomat and politician. Or was he once in the Navy?

I wasn't aware he was a General either...

At the time he was the Maritime minister, and I believe he was previously a captain or an Admiral, though I'm not sure.

Though I believe you are infact right there. My Ataturk guess was because of a very similiar picture of Ataturk that I came across.

We'll have to wait for Kaan to confirm though.

You'll be waiting a long time, it must be around about midnight, if not later in Turkey at the moment.

Sorry for the delay... Correct answer is Hüseyin Rauf Orbay, Orok you got it! Oh he was in the Navy and got the name " Hamidiye Hero".Then he became a diplomat. :)
Your turn.

Hi KaaN,

Nice to have some fun with you again! Here's my question:

What happened during the night of April 16/17, 1916, at Col di Lana?

Best Regards!

Hi Orok :wink: ,
Italians attacked the fortified positions of Ausro-Hungarian forces at about 5:00 pm.. Astro-Hungarians fought bravely but couldnt hold out against Italian artillery fire. At the end Italians captured the peak but they couldnt continue to the north and capture Mte. Sief.
