Friday Quiz 22



Another five questions to test your knowledge

1. Which battle in 1071AD saw the virtual destruction of the Byzantine Empire's regular army?

2. What were the three divisions of a medieval army called?

3. Who said, "General Lee, I have no division"?

4. Where in September 1931 did a serious mutiny take place in the Royal Navy?

5. Which island off the coast of Scotland was used during WWII for anthrax experiments?

I think this ones a bit tougher than usual, lets see how you all do

I think a mix of Thanks Giving and harder questions reduced the number of answers.

1. Manzikert.

2. Got some great detail to this one but Battles was what I was looking for.

3. General George Pickett at Gettysburg.

4. At Invergordon, among ships of the Atlantic Fleet.

5. Gruinard.
