Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

    Paul Conroy has written a cracking book about the death of War Correspondent Marie Colvin. A great read and although we SOMETIMES disparage journalists on RUM RATION, this is the story of a very brave woman. Well worth having a go for a copy of the book. There are 4 copies up for grabs and as ever all you have to do is answer the easy questions correctly to be in with a shout. The competition can be entered here at Survey Monkey.

    The book has been reviewed by old_fat_and_hairy and this can be found here. Under the Wire.

    I am surprised nobody has picked me up for the wrong book in the thread title! Still, hasn't stopped the entries.
