It's lamb time

The Treaty of Versailles was the peace settlement signed after World War One had ended in 1918 and in the shadow of the Russian Revolution and other events in Russia . The treaty was signed at the vast Versailles Palace near Paris - hence its title - between Germany and the Allies.

  • All of our overseas colonies
  • And 6 million of our people now belonged to other countries like Poland

Army

  • We had no subs, planes or tanks
  • Our Navy were limited to 6 warships

Money
