Special Sub-Topic: "Tomorrow When The War Began"
|On what day did the invasion begin?|
Commemoration Day. Kevin considered it a good day to invade, as everyone was at the show.
|Where did Ellie and her friends first go to for a holiday and end up having to keep camp there?|
Hell. Tailor's Stitch was the summit and cliff edging, and Hell was the basin. No one had been to this basin in over 40 years.
|Who was dating pre-invasion?|
Corrie and Kevin. With the exception of Robyn and Chris, the others get together during the first and second book.
|What was unusual about the planes flying overhead the night before the invasion?|
There were no lights on them. The amount of planes could be explained by the show (they had an air show display), but no lights made them more suspicious.
|Whose house did they check first when they came back initially from their holiday?|
Ellie's. Ellie came home to find the animals either dead or close to death from lack of food and water.
|What communication confirmed their fears?|
Fax from Corrie's Dad. The fax stated that a lot of army people were at the showgrounds and that the kids should 'go bush'.
|Who was involved in the ride-on mower explosion?|
Corrie, Kevin, Ellie. They blew it up to save themselves from being captured by the soldiers.
|Where did the group agree to hide family valuables so that they didn't have to take them?|
The garden. Robyn suggested this to Corrie and the others thought it was a great idea, but only a few got to carry it out.
|At Corrie's farm, a helicopter came, landed and then flew away; a few hours later, what did they do?|
Blew up Corrie's house with a missile. The planes also released a second missile meant for the shearer's shed (where Ellie and her friends were), but it hit the side of the hill instead.
|Who was shot in the leg?|
Lee. Lee and Robyn were fleeing soldiers in the heart of Wirrawee. Robyn found someone to give her medication and to stitch up Lee, but she eventually had to leave him to alert the others.
|How was this person rescued?|
Bulldozer. They went for maximum surprise, and although they did get attacked, they managed to get away with Lee.
|How did they meet up with Chris?|
Dumping a BMW in the dam. Chris came out to see what all the noise was.
|True of False: When Ellie first discovered "Hermit's Hut", she found the newspaper clippings.|
f. Lee found these clippings when Ellie took him to see the hut.
|How did Ellie and her friends find out more information about the showgrounds?|
From hiding in houses and talking to the people who cleaned them. Robyn, Kevin and Fi all hid in different houses and found out about the treatment of prisoners, their families, and what was happening next.
|Ellie and Fi steal a petrol tanker from where?|
Currs. This was instrumental in their attack plan; it took Ellie a lot of time to work out how to start and then drive one of them.
|What did they do with this tanker?|
Placed it under a bridge and using a rope as a fuse, blew it up. Ellie drove the tanker with Fi. They had the most dangerous job of all in this attack.
|What diversion was done by Lee and Homer to allow the tanker to do its job?|
Chase cattle onto the bridge. Homer and Lee used an old trick of 'hissing' to get the cattle moving.
|True or False: This particular action made an impact on the war front.|
t. The enemy had to divert traffic a long way around, and they had to build a new bridge.
|Who was shot at the end of the book?|
Corrie. Kevin and Corrie were getting ferrets to include in their stash down at Hell when she was shot in the back.
|Who risked their life to take this person to hospital?|
Kevin. He loved her so much that he wanted to be with her regardless of the fact that he would be captured by enemy soldiers.
