Scavenger Hunt Answer Sheet

1. While Lusitania was lost to a German torpedo in 1915, Mauretania served the 
   Admiralty with dubious distinction from 1915 to 1919 as both a troop transport 
   and a hospital ship. Although she and her sister were extremely fast and slender 
   (much slimmer than White Star's giant liners by comparison) they would have made 
   excellent armed cruisers. The admiralty decided that Mauretania's  hull lacked 
   sufficent strength without heavy armoring and that the Cunard four-stacker would 
   best serve in a support capacity. She came through and at war's end was returned 
   to Cunard for use as a commercial liner.

5. We'll sing song, a soldier's song,
   With cheering rousing chorus,
   As round our blazing fires we throng,
   The starry heavens o'er us;
   Impatient for the coming fight,
   And as we wait the morning's light,
   Here in the silence of the night, 
   We'll chant a soldier's song.

15. Iceland's climate is tempered by the Gulf Stream. Summers are mild and winters 
    rather cold. The colorful Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) appear from the
    end of August. From the end of May to the beginning of August, there are nearly 
    24 hours of perpetual daylight in Reykjavík, while in the northern part of the 
    country the sun barely sets at all. Winds can be strong and gusty at times and 
    there is the occasional dust storm in the interior. Snow is not as common as the 
    name of the country would seem to suggest, and in any case does not lie for 
    long in Reykjavík; it is only in north Iceland that skiing conditions are 
    reasonably certain. However, the weather is very changeable at all times of the 
    year, and in Reykjavík there may be rain, sunshine, drizzle and snow in the same 
    day. The air is clean and pollution-free.
