The official AHF German Colonies quiz thread

Post by Marcus » 09 Oct 2005 13:27

We've had several different quizes running here in the forum for a while with great success and now that this new section has been opened, 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 German Colonies or overseas expeditions) and so on.

Let's start with an easy one. Which was the only German Colony not to surrender to the Allies during the First World War?
Cheers

Modern Tanzania, or German East Africa as it was then known is correct.
Your Question...

This might be harder--name the water diviner from Uslar who on the recommendation of the Kaiser was sent to DSWA(South West Africa) in 1906 to assist in finding underground water bores.In his two years there he was successful in finding 172 water holes.

Oberstleutnant Victor Franke was also involved in this search for water so that the colony could expand inland.

I think that's a very easy question.

Pacific Islands in Question

Post by VeldesX » 12 Oct 2005 20:04

I'll break into this quiz (illegally), and ask:

Which of those Pacific Island groups purchased by Germany from Spain in 1898 was not surrendered to Japan during WWI? Which country received control over the islands in question?

Hi VeldesX,
Yes you did illegally break into this quiz. I think the answer you were looking for in Samoa which went to New Zealand, but whether that's the right answer or not it's Killchola's turn to ask a question. He did very well in getting the name of the dowser in DSWA.
If you've got a question you want to tease us with later, you know the rules as stated by Marcus at the top. You have to get one right first. If we all start asking questions randomly the thread will become illegible.
So Killchola- your question please....
Cheers
Chris Dale

OK!

In the Tanga landing operation in my post above, two Indian brigades(8,000 men) under Major General A. E. Aitken who sailed from Bombay were assailed and miserably molested by non-human thing on their landing. What was this?
