There is a Quiz Thread on the WiF forum, but I don't see much crossover in membership (by posts) between the two. I thought we would try something similar except using images to make it harder the Google the answers... I will start it off with three posts.

Topic is WW2 Trivia
Theme is images part of the question
Extra credit if its funny

Points awarded using the well documented and consistent method used on WLIIA but count twice as much...

Sorry about the artifact on the image the red and yellow are just pointers from Google Earth. And re number 2, it was a secret weapon but not deployed by amphibious craft...

I have seen similar devices dropped by planes for the same reason as listed above, however it does look small like the rollers used on Sherman tanks to destroy mines.

It is a tricky one; it doesn't look like what it is... (very non characteristic shape for the function) the cinder blocks give a bit of scale. It may help to say its complete in the picture no extra doodads needed or hanging off it.

These aren't as hard as you might think All three made HUGE headlines when they occurred

A few more hints however...

1# The picture is a City and the the hint is REALLY useful (but in a crossword puzzle kind of way). (North is at the bottom of the image (but that probably doesn't help much)

#2 is a weapon which did massive damage for its size BTW someone on the other forum nailed this one just a few minutes after I posted it...

#3 references one of the most famous quotes of the entire war.

Can't have them too easy whats the fun in that I bet they all get solved in a day or so

I hope a few others post some

Here is another:

This pictures the scene a battle between Poles and Germans which like so many had a tragic ending for the Poles ... a most heroic effort. The brave, the just and the right are not always rewarded with victory.

CORRECT !!! Just two hits on the MŲhnesee dam breached it causing massive damage. The bombs needed to be spun then dropped from a precise low altitude.

Corregidor is the island, though I am not sure what the red mark indicates. I don't think it's Malinta tunnel, which would be where the "head" of the tadpole meets the "tail", more or less, IIRC.

"I shall return" ... though I'm not sure Dugout Doug actually said it there ... a quick check on Wikipedia and it turns out it was said at a RR siding in South Australia

Paul,
Full score... I said 'associated with it' Needed the quote and the distinctive tadpole shape to make it work. Sorry about the Red and yellow stuff thats actually taken from another one of my posts it is just one end of the Google Earth measurement... I should have used a clean shot it caused a lot of confusion LOL

Don't know the answers to the other questions so thought I'd post a couple of my own.

1) <-------- Points to his avatar - What is the name of this unit? Hint: Active in India, Burma and China pursuing "the ungentlemanly side of warfare" and part of an arm of service tasked with "setting Europe ablaze"

2) What is this? Hint: Would have been used by 1)

The unit is no doubt the SOE the device no doubt something which would cause harm in an underhanded fashion (it looks familiar from a visit to the Spy Museum a while back but I can't think of what it is.

Those guys were Hard Core I think I read some volunteered to be entombed in concrete to 'stay behind' at Gibraltar if it was taken.

That was quick.

Correct on number 1) specifically Force 316 SOE (my father's unit)though insignia were at best somewhat unofficial so SOE is the correct answer.

2) Something used in an underhanded fashion is in a very literal sense correct as well - British SOE assassinís wrist dagger or dart designed to be concealed under the sleeve.

Here is what it looks like out of the scabbard

I kind of figured it was a 'stick them with the pointy end' sort of thing... (But also thinking exploding crossbow bolts so...) Anyway Good One

Sorry NOT CORRECT
She piloted 243 Il-2 missions and among other awards she was granted the Gold Star of Hero of the Soviet Union "posthumously" in 1944. Reports of her death were premature as she lived until 2009, surviving imprisonment as a POW.

A more recent picture...
