    Default A Quiz - Australians

    Moderators, if you find the content of this post inappropriate please do not hesitate to delete it, I shall not be in the least offended. Itís a slow day at my location with rain bucketing down and unable to do any yard-work so I decided to post a Quiz regarding Australian airmen.

    The fourty Australian airmen listed below share a unique relationship. This relationship does not include honours, awards, wartime employment or their eventual fates. However, as a group, they are unique.

    Question: What is the unique relationship of these fourty men?

    Those of you who have the answer please do not post immediately, let others chime in.

    I started looking on the cwgc site & of those who had been killed or missing ,quite a few were from Melbourne & a couple had NZ parents or wife .But I didn't check the whole list on cwgc .

    At first I wondered if they had taken part in The Great Escape but then I realised that it was in 1944 & some of the men had died 2 years before.
