First book competition of July brings a gem of a book. A very funny and highly amusing story of a doctor working with an air-ambulance helicopter. For your chance to win a copy of this book just go to Survey Monkey and compete the entry form. The book was reviewed on ARRSE about a year ago under it's other title "You Can't Park There!".The competition will run until Sunday 14th July.





Original review can be found here: You Can't Park There!

OK, a wee hint as only 20% are getting Q3 right. It is not that hard you just have to read the question and then look for the answer - it is not the obvious one!

Winners & Answers - Confessions of an Air Amb Dr

Very popular quiz which, despite a heavy clue, only 43% got Q3 correct - more later.

The Publisher, Ebury Publishing, have very generously donated 10 copies of this book, twice the normal number. The winners of this competition, and therefore somebody with good summer reading material; are as follows:

Ss9167
Bamboozler
Egg Banjo
WreckerL
Aiden
Alfred the great
lumpy2
Hairyarse2
rebel with a cause
hungry hippo


I will be contacting the winners through their contact email addresses for their address so I can arrange for the book to be sent to them. Respond asap please folks so I can get this one cleared - you have 2 weeks to claim your prize.

Answers:

Q1 - Dr Bleetman trained as a military doctor with the: Israeli Defence Force

Q2 - The callsign for this HEMS unit is: Helimed999

Q3 - and the one that caused all the problems, this HEMS unit operates in: West Midlands.

I said Q3 was not the obvious answer and the obvious one was London as the blurb spoke about Bleetman starting off in London. The book about Helimed 999 is set in West Midlands. 43% got this correct so it can't have been that hard! Congratulations to the 43%, shame I could not have given all of you a book.
