    A non-fiction book about the life of Captain Alan Hillgarth RN. In the period between the great wars there was plenty of opportunity for adventure and Hillgarth certainly found his share. The book has been reviewed by Seaweed and can be found here: Man of War

    The competition is for one of 5 copies of this book and can be entered on Survey Monkey here. Three very simple questions as ever and all you have to do is answer correctly and fill in your details - Simple!

    Competition will run until Sunday 12 May at approx midday.

    I found plenty of information about Operation MINCEMEAT, but very little about MICEMEAT. It must've been extremely secret operation... :shock: :wink:
     
  6. Sussed, read the questions this time and ticked all the boxes to cover my bets ;)
