It was an attempt to keep you from choosing tank. Since trains are larger and therefore more significant than tanks.

I can't remember if this has been asked yet so forgive me if I'm being redundant.

What did the term "blow Job" refer during WWII?

Hint: It's not sexual.

This sound familiar but, alas, I have no idea.

pauldernyck is correct. US pilots called them blow jobs because they blew past you.

Clue 1: It is Soviet.
Clue 2: That is an actual photograph not a model.

10/24/42 - 11/04/42 Operation LIGHTFOOT (Second Battle of El Alamein) Lieutenant-general Bernard Law Montgomery uses infantry to sweep 2 corridors through the minefields.

What "gift" developed by Polish Lieutenant Józef Kosack was first used here

Instead of patenting this item Lieutenant Kosack chose to give this item to the British army as a gift.

The British Army used this item until 1995.

I am in luck since I recently watched a documentary about this battle. They used a mine detector to sweep the fields faster. I had no idea that Lieutenant Kosack was responsible for developing it nor that he gave it to the British army.

Thank you for sharing.

Correct the Mine Detector (Polish) Mk1. (No joke this is the proper designation)

Originally it was being designed to detect dud artillery rounds but Germany invaded Poland and development was continued in England to be used to detect mines.

11/06/42 - 12/12/42 Operation SNEEZE

11/06/42 Precautions were taken against Force X in event of hostile action by that Force consequent on impending Allied landings in North Africa.

12/12/42 The British Commander in Chief informed the military authorities that preparations for action against the ships of Force X were no longer needed.


What country did the ships of Force X belong to?

Force X - I'll guess Spain.



My local small town newspaper runs a regular series of interviews with the remaining WWII veterans in the area. A few days ago they had one with a man who both went over the beach at Attu & Kiska ... AND at Normandy. I could ask a trivia question of what unit was this man in, but no one would ever get it, as it wasn't even a regimental level unit. He was in a mobile Army field hospital that was withdrawn from the Aleutians to the continental US and then shifted to Europe.

But it did make me think of a good trivia question. What Allied divisions or smaller units fought both German and Japanese troops. I will even give you part of the first answer....at least one Australian division. But I can't recall the number of which one, and I'm not supposed to Google the answer. Were there others?

I will generously give this one to you since the ships were interned in Alexandra harbor, Egypt at the time.

11/11/42 Amiral Darlan surrenders all Vichy French forces in French North Africa to the Allies.

I beleive it was the Australian 8th Division that was lucky enough to be redeployed from North Africa to Singapore. So they probably fought Italians too, at some point.

re: Operation Sneeze....Vichy France seemed like too easy an answer. And they did contest Allied landings.

Here is a good one: Name five American generals leading at the Army level or above who commanded foreign troops. There could be more than five perhaps, especially in 1945 maybe. Name five who did it before 1945, I think I have that figured out. Eisenhower would be the easy one.

For tons of extra credit, name all American generals leading at the Corps level who commanded foreign troops. I can think of one that didn't work out too good, and one name I don't know that worked out just fine in August '44. Again 1945 would probably be even more difficult for a difficult question.
