The official AHF WW2 in Africa & the Med quiz thread

Post by Marcus » 31 Jan 2005 19:39

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 in Africa & the Mediterranean) and so on.

Well since I won't be around much on Wednesday to reply, this question is so easy it won't take any knowledge to answer.

What major Italian Naval port was attacked by British aircraft in 1941?

Anyone who types Taranto is correct :wink: and its your question

Regards

OK, Andy. But the most famous attack on Taranto was in November 1940 :D
