Rat Patrol Trivia Quiz Plus Mission
- the much easier multiple choice version
(thanks to Barbo for watching the episodes with such dedication and for coming up with virtually all the questions and all the 'right' answers. Thanks also to her for sharing the quiz with Suncompass.)

Dietrich is looking very pleased. And for good reason.

He's finally caught all four of the Rat Patrol and is holding them at a secret location with his ever ready sidekick Manfred. 

The Rat Patrol's CO has an urgent mission just for you -

Rescue the Rat Patrol!

If you can answer the questions below, then Dietrich will release the Rat Patrol foursome again to the desert.  The lads are counting on you to get them back into the thick of things even though it will surely make Dietrich grumpy (and without a doubt he will shout at Manfred).

If you are ready for your 'interrogation', let us begin.
