You could still Telegraph in 1919. Lets us know just how far removed from that generation that we are today.  Soon. everyone of us oldies will need to explain "turning" down the volume and "dialing" a phone.
Ask me about the legendary desert Bigfoot. A.K.A the Sandsquatch and his more elusive cousin, the Albino White Sands Dunefoot.

Plus understanding a Roman numeral date and cursive style of writing, which is no longer taught in primary schools.

Haha!  Frankly, I'd probably flunk the test myself.  Though I do have the cone head screws memorized.  Looks like they still make them.

Uranium? Hmmm. Not sure about that. I hope that steel machine was used to build the old brewery in Latrobe because I've drank a lot of Rolling Rock back in the day!

History of SM U-118 German U-boat: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SM_U-118
Quote
The ending of hostilities on 11 November 1918 led to the subsequent surrender of the Imperial German Navy. The SM U-118 was transferred to France on 23 February 1919.
Quote
U-118 was to be broken up for scrap. In the early hours of 15 April 1919, however, while she was being towed through the English Channel towards Scapa Flow, the dragging hawser broke off in a storm. The submarine ran aground on the beach at Hastings in Sussex at approximately 00:45, directly in front of the Queens Hotel.
