Well played with that 1907 - 1949. Only got it because someone here at work mentioned it yesterday. Quite the debate before we looked it up.

Newfoundland has its own dedicated gate to Buckingham Palace, for what it's worth.

Yeah. It's easy to forget that Newfoundland was at one point a sovereign country, (or at least a sovereign as Canada at the time).

Not sure I quite understand his quiz. My understanding was Ireland, and most of the others, were fully independent at the start dates. Can you explain QM? Surely the Queen didn't remain as technical head of state of Ireland for 27 years after independence?

Wikipedia states that Ireland (not including Northern Ireland) was a dominion from 1922 until 1937. After that it gained independence, but was still technically de jure under the British crown until the republic act of 1948.

Actually, according to this wikipedia page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irish_Free_State British monarch was the head of Irish State till 1936 (or desputable 1937). But the very same page gives information that Ireland was a dominion till 1931, not 1949 as indicated in this quiz Also, I'd like to mention that a dominion status is a very different thing from having British monarch as a head of state, or being part of Commonwealth later on. I like idea of that quiz very much

Use a genuine source, not Wikipedia written by anyone with a pulse and you might learn the truth.

How about a quiz on all the countries all over the World that were at one time colonized and enslaved by the British Empire and in which all their natural resources were stripped from the country so that Evil Empire could enrich itself. After all the British Empire drew lines in the sand and across mountain ranges declaring who was who. Most of the ills in the World today can be traced back to the BE, most notably the Middle East and Central East. Should make for a great quiz.

It's also worth remembering that many ills have been carried out by many countries, not just Britain. In fact it is safe to say that no country, past or present is completely blameless.

They were never a Dominion. They went straight from being a constituent part of the British Empire to full, real, independence. That's what the Revolutionary War was about..

Many African countries were full dominions for brief periods of time, like Ghana, Kenya, etc.
