I have three copies of the biography of Jock Lewes who David Stirling recognised as the real brains behind the outfit. Lewes devised and carried out the initial training of SAS personnel. Sadly he was killed and did not go on to received the full merit he should have done. In his spare time he invented the Lewes Bomb which was a very effective tool in taking out enemy equipment, especially aircraft on the ground. Great review by rebbonk which can be read here:

As ever, comp entry through page on Survey Monkey which can be found here: Entry Form

This competition will run until Sunday 1st May (unless I decide to go away for the bank holiday in which case it will be later!)

Note: The questions may not be quite what you expected - read and inwardly digest before answering. They are about SAS though.

Nothing minor I hope?
Not for me, I was dad's taxi. My youngest son 31yrs did not look to good and looked like he had cellulites in his leg. They kept him in and are keeping in to day. Kids always causing problems? My phone was never designed for man size fingers, this kindle fire is not to bad, at least with this I can keep pagers open in the background.

Hope he is OK now and enjoying hospital food! At least I was partly correct as it was Sumo Minor! ;)

@Helm


Get your details to me asap and I will arrange for the book to be sent.

The answers to this SAS competition are:

Q1 The Scandinavian Airlines System was formed in 1946

Q2 The flag bearing countries for this airline are: Sweden, Norway & Denmark

Q3 The baggage handling system introduced by SAS was the Fingerprint Bio-metric Identification system

Some people were a bit confused by the questions but I did warn people to read them! The old adage RTFQ applies to all of these competitions! :cool:

I did read the questions, got them all right and still didn't win.

I sense a fix by a disgruntled pongo who's none too happy about the recent rugby result (and losing to the crabs :)).
