And as it's just a daft quiz I'm surprised to see you post a question.
You mentionned "several authors" in you previous post. My bad for thinking your research and reading extended further than google search and freebies.

The quiz becomes daft when the questions are based on falsehoods. My question is based upon the knowledge obtained from the unit WD of which cruiser type and the 3 different light tank sub-types used at Gallabat.

Your involvement lacks scholarly rigour and a sense of humour, it's quite disappointing. As for your disparagement of Wiki, I wrote the fucqueur and have put right the mistake; constructive criticism is always welcome.

And your involvement contains "scholarly rigour" and you always welcome constructive criticism???? Hahahaaaa!!!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

You've just owned up to being the writer of the wiki falsehood. So now it all becomes so much clearer. 8-)

As to "scholarly rigour" and welcoming constructive criticism, you have just owned up to quoting yourself to evidence your own false point of view in an attempt to put down any challenge to your own false narrative. :lol: :lol: :lol:

All of this could have been avoided if you'd only followed my original hint....

What was the name of the fictitious unit created by the British in 1941 to make Italy believe that the British had deployed airborne forces to North Africa?
