Don't panic Neil - the answer to this one's not too hard to find.... (it's an interesting story though)
During World War 2, a submarine was sunk as a result of a malfunctioning toilet... Who was the boat's unfortunate captain?
German submarine U-1206, (KL Karl-Adolf Schlitt)

Oblt. Gunther Fritze?
Hardcase has the answer I was after.... U-1206 sank after water entered through the toilet. The water got into the batteries and the boat was forced to surface where it was attacked and sunk by aircraft. In his report Schlitt blamed a faulty valve but other accounts say the captain himself caused the flood by not using the toilet correctly (apparently only specially trained crew members were supposed to operate the complex system of valves used to flush the toilet!! An idea for DML's next figure maybe? "German U-boat toilet operative (Scheissmann, 2nd Class)" )
Anyway the next question's Hardcase's...
you could also have a vietnam or modern version: basic figure, a mop bucket, a 55 gallon drum of fuel, and two gasoline cans. and a 5 foot stick.

Don't be so unkind.You may not survive to pass this way again,and these be the last friendly words you'll hear.
1/2 right 5x5. Singapore is the correct country/ City state of origin, but "old farts ' is not the correct honorific. No soup for you. NEXT!
Well that's a relief, because I really didn't have a question lined up. Whew.
OK, times up the correct answer was/is: The three kings. from Singapore.
New question: What was the name of the board that was shut down not once but twice by DML? and who ran it?

Dead thread. I'll pass off the question to someone else.
Here's one that is currently stumping the group at GL's....
In most armies to the mid 20th Century, Officers were slightly taller than enlisted ranks. However, in the Imperial Japanese Army, the officers were more typically SHORTER than the enlisted ranks. Why?
Is it because officers usually started in training programs as young teens. The training included extremely intense physical programs and minimal rations to prepare them for physical hardship on campaign. As a result they were shorter on average than the rest of the population. Enlisted men typically did not start military training until after they had achieved full height?
(that's what Mr Google says anyway )
So the troops had to bow when talking to them?
greg gets it! officer candidates were frequently beaten, doused with cold water and forced to endure cold weather with no protection, given minimal rations, etc... which lead to sickly young men who failed to achieve their full growth. Enlisted men, on the other hand, grew up without as many beatings, pneumonia inspired illnesses, etc..
Ok here's my next question...
During World War 2, one of the types of improvised armoured vehicles used by the British Home Guard had concrete armour. Several hundred of these vehicles were produced. What were they called?
