This is a quiz I posted a few years back.  Makes a nice change from politics.  Do you like quizzes?  I can’t resist.  Not the kind where you’re sweating it out for a grade, but the fun kind in magazines in the doctor’s office.   Just a little series of questions to see what you know.  Here’s one, just for fun.  What do you know about the famous ships of the world, and why they were famous?  I’ll bet it’s more than you think.  Identify as many as you can (click links for answers):

  1. HMS Victory
  2. Speedwell
  3. HMS Repulse
  4. USS Lexington
  5. Graf Spee
  6. USS Hornet
