Jubilee Quiz…

we’ve devised a quiz especially for this Jubilee week.  Essentially, we give you the clue, and you name the year – 60 questions, for each year of Her Majesty’s reign.

The quiz is below.  For answers, please email arnieskelton@etduk.co.uk



There are 60 questions. Each question requires a year as an answer. There are no repeat years – so the complete set of answers will cover each year between 1953 and 2012. It’s for fun only – but if you want to compete in teams, we suggest the following scoring:

10 points for the exact year

4 points for within 2 years either way

1 point for the right decade

Good luck!
