Re: 20th Century Events.

Thank you for doing the quiz Kate and thanks for the karma just received. I have to say I was really lucky to be online when you posted the quiz so got first pick at the answers then like a dog with a bone I have to stay around to finish the job!

BTW you have credited me with an answer I did not get - WWI troops playing football was Margaret P, credit where credit's due.

Thanks again Kate and so glad to see you back online. Hope your recovery's going well.

Whoops, apologies to Margaret Pilkington ... I do try hard, honest ..
That would mean that you had 16 and Margaret 5.

I would of done good if I had noticed this earlier, and if I hadn't of been stoned ... I thought a lot of them looked like the world-wide joyous celebrations of my birth on December 1, 1945. Particularly that big mother of a firework going off
