    I have been given a scavenger hunt in my History of WWII class... There is only one thing i cant find anywhere... The Question is, Find out what is meant by the term, "Whore's Undies" (relative to Battle of Atlantic) and write a brief description of the term. Ive looked every where and cand find it, any help would be much appreciated.

    Thank you for your reply and yes that does answer my Q. Every website that had mention of "Whore's Undies" was blocked by the school :mad:
