Book Competition - Judy - Canine PoW

Discussion in 'Competitions' started by Ageing_Gracefully, Jun 3, 2014.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

    Judy was a Ship's Dog which followed her master into captivity when rounded up by the Japanese. Her story of bravery whilst in the camps is brought to us by Damien Lewis and makes for a fascinating read, whether you are a canine lover or not.

    A good book to read when you are 'dog-tired' in the 'dog-watches' - just enter the competition through the Survey Monkey entry form here.

    The book is being reviewed so hopefully that will be up on the site fairly soon.

    Competition will run until Sunday 22nd June sometime between breakfast and bedtime.
