5 A recipient of the Victoria Cross for an action that took place in the month of April, in any year


This was nearly 10 points for everybody, but I had to disallow one as the action wasn’t in April.

Worth 10 points:
Abdul Hafiz (Jemadar, 9th Jat Infantry, Indian Army, Burma, 6 April 1944 – posthumous), Albert Ball (T/Captain, The Sherwood Foresters and Royal Flying Corps, France, 25 April-6 May 1917 – died 7 May 1917), Edward Bellew (Captain, 7th Bn British Columbia Regt, Canadian Expeditionary Force, Belgium, 24 April 1915), James Bergin (Private, 1st Bn, 33rd Regt, Abyssinia, 13 April 1868), George Bradford (Lieutenant Commander, HMS Iris II, raid on Zeebrugge, Belgium, 22/23 April 1918 – posthumous; died on his 31st birthday), Chhelu Ram (Company Havildar Major, 6th Rajputana Rifles, Indian Army, Tunisia, 19/20 April 1943 – posthumous),

There were many others to choose from, including others from the Zeebrugge raid in 1918; William Milne at Vimy Ridge; George Samson and others at Gallipoli in 1915.

Some of those mentioned bring interesting bits and pieces to mind. Pollard went on to write a thriller called ‘Red Hazard’ of which I have a copy. Bradford’s brother Roland was also awarded a Victoria Cross. Jackson’s award was for climbing onto the wing of a Lancaster bomber, in flight, to put out an engine fire.

Drum roll, please.

The winner, with a perfect 50 points is Shrivats

40 points: bracklaman, cinnam0n, ElfTwinkle, littlewoman2, Mugaboo, ren33
35 points: gatsby722, Julia103, ozzz2002
30 points: Exit10, SRSTrekker

Results!

1. A Roman numeral
For ten points:
M (1000), D (500)
For five points:
X (=10) (5 people), I (=1) (3 people), V(=5) (3 people), C (=100) (2 people),
Not mentioned
L (50)
I feel a bit unfair with this as I said a roman numeral and many people sent me several numerals (like IV = 4. IV is two numerals to me. ) but I just wanted one numeral. I accepted the just one number that everyone mentioned. I should have made it clearer before this. But well done to everyone with the numbers!

2. A Zodiac sign
For ten points:
Sagittarius, Capricorn, Gemini, Aquarius, Aries, Scorpio
For five points:
Cancer (3), Leo,(2) Virgo (2),
Not mentioned
Taurus, Libra, Pieces,
