    Clues:
    1) The number of sides in a pentagon.
    2) The number of days in the Christian Xmas calendar.
    3) According to a top twenty hit, the average age of U.S. Soldiers who served in Vietnam.
    4) According to a famous book, the number of men on a dead man's chest.

    1) = day date.
    2) = month date.
    3) + 4)(side by side) = year date.

    Questions :-
    1) What 'Act of piracy' ?
    2) What was the result?

    I hope this is not too easy and gives you something to think about over the Holidays.

    I know I said over the Hols., but I didn't expect this question to last this long without one guess.
    C'mon People, it's not that hard, honest.

    Sorry, Irving, have another look at clue 2. I don't know how many days you recognise in the U.S., but I did specify 'in the Christian Calendar'.

    now maybe I'm wrong to, but was it the sinking of the Lusitania by U20.
    As a result of this the sink on sight order was revoked, on 18th
    sept 1915 but I could be wrong. viki;

    I suggest also sinking of Lusitania 7th of May 1915 although i can't quite fit that date to those clues. Result of sinking of Lusitania by German U-Boat? Well, at least it woke up some anger in US because so many Americans lost their lives. But US did not join the war until 1917. Am i even close? bou;
