    I don't know how to break this to you - but you ain't in the winners' pool!

    As I have said on many occasions RTFQ!!!

    The responses so far have given about 50/50 correct/incorrect answers. Read the question, engage brain, answer!
     
  5. Oh well, too late now and I never even used Wiki either (which is normally unreliable)

    I am not sure if you can enter more than once, but try it. I don't mind if you have more than one shot - although I think I will only count one person per winning answer, so if you enter several times with correct answers I will count the username once only.
     
  7. No Joy, at least I got 2 of the 5 right (I think), the last two :)
     
  8. Its hanging when you try to enter again... maybe thats a "my end" issue. You git, Q2 is ambiguous....

    The answers. Well I did warn you all to RTFQ which many obviously did not!

    Q1 Who commanded the First Allied Airborne Army at the time of MARKET GARDEN. Answer Lt General Lewis H Brereton USAAF.
    Not Browning (Dep Comd) Not Eisenhower or Montgomery as many said.

    Q2 What Regiment was Lt Col John Frost commissioned into. Answer Cameronians (Scottish Rifles) Not Parachute Regiment, which had not been formed when Frost commissioned.

    Q3 John Frost played himself in a 1946 film of the Battle of Arnhem. What was the name of the film? Answer Theirs is the Glory. Which Amazon are offering on DVD for £35!!.

    Congratulation to those who took time to read and understand the question and get the answers correct. More congratulations to the lucky 5 winners named above.
