Filed Under (General, Trivia Question of the Week) by Rob on 14-04-2008

Q: A four part question this time. Here are the former names of some African countries. What are they called now?

(i) Upper Volta
(ii) Rhodesia
(iii) Dahomey
(iv) Abyssinia

Answer to last week’s question: The Nepalese Flag is not rectangular
the winner was the incredible Mr Tom Ferguson, followed – somewhat uncannily – by the legendary Debbie Hatfield.
Ben Griffin had a bash too, but was a tad late (hey – I see a pattern here – the time zones are helping those further east to win!!)
