Next competition is for at least 6 books from Pen & Sword, all excellent books and worth a read. This competition will run for two weeks until 7th August at some point during the day. The questions are about Malta for no other reason than I am off there on holiday so will not be around for a while (whoops of delight from the usual crew!)

The competition can be entered by completing the form to be found here: Entry Form

There is one novel and five military/naval history and maybe another off my bookshelf, we'll see how generous I feel.

Have a good holiday AG. My grandad was Maltese, I still have family there. Not that that's a threat or anything with regards the competition ;)

Thank you the kind words are my holiday in Malta; I would just like to point out that that makes no difference to the draw! :D

Ex-J - I don't think so, although I admit there are always grounds for speculation. However, BNM seems to be heading east then north - but AG appears to be heading at least south of mainland Europe.
Whatever, they would always be welcome on the Isle of Wight.....
