    Colonel Thomas Kendrick, one of Britain's most successful, loyal yet unknown spies. Operating in three wars, Boer, WW1 & WW2 Kendrick brought vital information back. In the process he was instrumental in helping hundreds of Jews to flee Austria prior to the war. During WW2 he ran an interrogation centre for senior German officers and was responsible for vital information being extracted from them, often by using bugging devices to capture unguarded speech. Helen Fry has brought us a fascinating book on Kendrick and there are three copies avvailable as prizes.

    Competition can be accessed through Survey Monkey as usual from here.

    Competition will run until Sunday 21st September.

  13. Will do.
     
  14. I saw a link on Facebook to an unattributable source that I am assured is actually from the upper echelons of ARRSE that anyone who voted NO in the Referendum was secretly barred from winning this.

    I demand an immediate recount and a call for those concerned to be put in prison for crimes against the hard-of-thinking!

    And if that doesn't work . . . BZ to those who won this time, better luck for the others next time.

    There was nothing secret about it!!!
