    Next in this very popular series of book competitions is for a copy of the Owner’s Manual for the iconic SPITFIRE. The book has been reviewed by Jim24 and that can be read here.

    The competition is entered in the usual way by going to the entry for on SurveyMonkey and completing the three very simple questions (correctly) along with your username and contact email address. As ever, read the question before answering!

    This competition will run for just under two weeks and will close at mid-day on Sunday 13th November 2011.

    If you have not already tried it, the competition for a copy of the SPACE SHUTTLE Owner’s Manual is still running and will be open until mid-day on Sunday 6th November – have a look here.

    The next in this series of books will be DAMBUSTER, which will start on (or about) Tuesday 8th November 2011, so keep an eye out for that.

    'They' ? Anyway, you are quite correct in your mini-clue. I (They) could have made it more of a lottery by asking outright which aircraft had first been shot down by a Spitfire, but I realised that this question was going to be put to matelots as well as the geniuses on ARRSE so I had to dumb it down a bit :)

    The best way to cut down Wit's chances is for more people to enter. So get on to the new comps and keep Wits at bay :)
