    What happened when the fighting between the Axis and Allied Powers stopped in May 1945? Life wasn’t all rosy and peaceful. Across Europe vast numbers people were on the move having been chased out of their homes; killing, rape, all types of violence was the norm. Not a highly publicised period in history, but we now have a book which investigates this period – Savage Continent by Keith Lowe.

    For your chance to win go to the entry form on Survey Monkey and correctly complete the questions. There are 5 copies of this book available. The competition will run until Sunday 10[SUP]th[/SUP] June.

    Lot of incorrect answers - some people obviously can't use Google/Wiki properly :)

    Still plenty of time to get your - correct - entries in.

    Congrats to them and I will email them for their contact addresses.

    Answers (and I am surprised how many got the answers wrong as Google/Wiki had them all)
    Q1 - Westminster College, Missouri

    Q2 - Stettin (in the Baltic) to Triest (in the Adriatic)

    Q3 - 28 years (1961-1989), although 38 seemed to be a popular (incorrect) answer!​

    Look out for the next competition starting later this week.
     
  13. Brills, I got them all right and still didn't win...are you sure you didn't use to sell the raffle tickets for the Thursday meat raffle?

    It is completely untrue and a slur on my good name to imply that my mother in law winning the best cuts pack every week was anything other than luck!
