How would you fare in an historic headlines quiz?


Today – historic headlines quiz

As I have gotten older my memory has got slightly worse and I don’t remember things as well as I used to. I have been learning the guitar over the last year and no matter how hard I try I cannot keep 3 simple scales in my head, whereas my 9 year old daughter remembered them after just week 4!






Historic headlines quiz

I do remember old pop lyrics and rather useless facts from my history A levels though and random poems I was taught at school. I also remember important phone numbers from many many years ago but struggle to recall my other half phone number!

Hmmm. This does not bode well for the current course of study I am about to undertake!

This fabulous quiz from Sunlife quiz looks back over the last 70 years at some of the most significant events, and tests your knowledge into what might have happened and how well you remember the events.


My dad got the Sun newspaper when we were young and mum felt it was far too ‘adult’ for us to go near so needless to say I blame my poor score squarely on my parents.

I only got 4/9

Oh dear


 The over 50s quiz can be found here  Do let me know how you get on. I have to say I do think I need to brush up a bit on my history!

    Oh, I do love a good quiz. 7/9 – not too bad but then again, all of this was before I was born x
