Ok, how many bolts were used to secure the upper hull of the Sturmmörser Tiger to the lower hull?
None, it was welded?

Next Q. Who was the Anzac Donkey Man?
Simpson of course!
Come on Smeg, more than that, you know and I know, give em the full details of this man who should have had a VC, and guess what my surname is?
John Simposon landed at ANZAC Cove in the Gallipoli campaign as a stretcher bearer... Distinguished himself by retrieving wounded comrades from the field with the help of his donkey, Abdul, often amidst withering machine gun fire, demonstrating the courage and bravery so pronounced that even today, all the kiddies in Australia learn about him at school.
Good to hear that he's been heard of across the Pacific
