Our third lockdown quiz was on the theme of "Great Escapes". 

In tribute to our French friends, the first set of questions was naturally about the Bastille, including some virtual fireworks to celebrate. This was followed by questions on escapes from the Tower of London; the Grest Escape from Stalag Luft III and the film; Colditz; Alcatraz; and Ronnie Biggs from HMP Wandsworth.  Other topics included Famous Last Words, Quotes and Film Lines, and finished with an arts Picture round.

One particular topic was the Lucky Escape of our own Club member and unsung hero, Lt Cdr Charles Lightoller, who was the senior surviving officer of the Titanic, and went on to rescue 127 troops at Dunkirk in his motor launch 'Sundowner'. Some of the slides are attached on the right as PDFs.
