  • Battlefields, Museums amd Exhibitions Quiz #2.

    Another quiz for you from your friendly neighbourhood Curator and Moderator...

    I want to know:

    1) What is the name of this object?
    2) What was it used for?
    3) When does it date from?

    Imagine a ball of iron, the size of the sun. And once a year a tiny sparrow brushes its surface with the tip of its wing. And when that ball of iron, the size of the sun, is worn away to nothing, your punishment will barely have begun.

    I'll take a wild stab at a towed sonar/asdic array from WW1.???
    If you can't set a good example, be a glaring warning.

      Well, you've got the era right - so very well done on that (it just looks like it's from the Great War doesn't it?) - but not the rest of it, sorry!

          I'm sure it has something to do with submarine warfare. Maybe a decoy? Really grasping at straws now.

                  It's not a guided/acoustical torpedo is it?? Didn't think they had that technology then.

                    I think you are close enough. I know it was a toughie!

                    Here's the answer.

                    Watch out for more quizzes!

                      Fishing for subs. What a concept. Gives a whole new meaning to "I got a big one on the line".

                        And you should hear the stories about "the one that got away!"
