    Slightly different competition this time with the prize being any one of 6 books that have been sent to me by Publishers but which have already been reviewed on ARRSE. As ever, the competition is accessed by completing the entry form on SurveyMonkey which can be found here. Very simple questions with easy answers. The winners will be drawn from those who answer the questions correctly and the prize will be one of the books shown below. No particular order and I will select which winner gets which book. Offers in sealed brown envelopes to the usual address! Competition will run until Sunday 14th July which gives plenty of time to enter.

    The books are

    KABOOM
    Hellfire.jpg
    HELLFIRE
    These are all paperback editions and will be a good read for the summer (if we ever get one!) so have a go and give yourself a chance to win some good reading material.​

    On Survey Monkey I had said that the competition ends on 8th July whereas it should have read 15th July. SM duly amended.

    So plenty of time to get your entries in, after a bit or research.

    Just 25 hours to go in this competition so still plenty of time to look up Google for the correct answers and enter the competition for one of these books.

    The winners of the books are, in no particular order and the book selected is first in the stack as I look at them now - i.e. pot-luck:


    • WreckerL - On His Majesty's Service
    • SJRM-RN - What it is like to go to War
    • janner - Hellfire
    • rebbonk - In the Garden of Beasts
    • Mr Fingerz - Kaboom!
    • Ethel the Aardvark - Shadow Force

    I will email the winners for their contact addresses and get the books out this week sometime.

    The answers are:

    Q1 A French rifle like weapon

    Q2 Gen 'Straffer' Gott (shot down and killed on his way to take over command - Montgomery sent in as replacement)

    Q3 Gen Creighton W Abrams Jr

    I am obviously not fixing (ooops) I mean drawing these competitions properly 4 : 2 matelots versus pongoes. I will have to check that lottery machine again!!! :)
     
  18. Cheers AG, I trust Janners book comes with colouring crayons and LARGE PRINT.
     
  19. Could have something to do with more matelots being able to read AG, therefore more entering :read2:
     
  20. Book received, muchos grassy arse.
