    Quick 'Bump' for this, still a week to go, have a shot as it is a good read and more importantly, free to enter!

    I will be emailing them later for their details.

    Answers:

    Q1 Size of the army in 1980 = c159,000

    Q2 The Service which has increased its number of officers recently is NOT the RAF but none other than the ARMY

    Q3 The number of battalions of Parachute Regiment during WW2 was : 17.


    Well done to those who were correct and commiserations if you did not come out of the draw. Not surprisingly, a large number of entrants thought that the RAF was the Service which had increased it's Officer pool - wonder what will happen to all these extra army officers now? [​IMG]

    Look out for the next competition which will be a pot luck and run for just a week. Up soon. In the meantime there is still the competition for a Kosa 3 Jacket which can be found here.

    The competition sits on ARRSE and that link in red should take you to the competition page for this which in turn will give you a link in to the Survey Monkey entry form. If you still can't find it I will post another thread with the links to the jacket competition.

    Edit: Sorted. App wasn't letting me use links.
