Questions for Quiz 5


Over the years the CCS has held several quizzes through its journal, Cook's Log.
These are reproduced for you on our web site, so you can take part and test your knowledge of Captain Cook.

Here is Quiz 5.
The questions originally appeared in 2004 (Vol. 27, no. 2, page 3) and the answers the following year (Vol. 28, no. 2, page 3).
Answers to this quiz

The Questions

There are many illustrations on stamps of ships relating to Captain Cook's voyages. How many do you recognise? Try to answer the following questions for each picture below:
1. Which country issued this stamp? Give the year of issue, and the face value.
2. Which ship is named, on the stamp or in the catalogues.
3. Is this information correct? - If not give the correct vessel and any details.

Although answers to the first two questions should be fairly uniform the response to the last could be controversial, different opinions have already appeared in Cook's Log.

All of the stamps have appeared in past issues of Cook's Log. This quiz is the first of four parts, all featuring 20 different stamps.
