    I have a few books which have been sent to me as well as a reviewer so I now offer these up for competition. There are 4 set in Roman times and one set in Britain just after the Norman invasion.

    Entry form for this competition can be found here: Pot Luck Comp.

    Competition will run until Sunday 28th September sometime in the evening (ish).
     
  2. Bloody hell, 3 questions and I did not have to revert to google for the answers (hopes I got em right, but fairly confidant I did)

    thanks to Simon Scarrow for knowing the roman questions, and a passing interest in the Norman conquest for the other one
     
  3. I'm in, as there's only 5 of us left, I'm in with a good shout!

    Bit cheeky question one

    In this instance that is so and ARRSE has come out tops - this time! Rum Ration has a good record overall though and have done well in previous comps so should look at this as a one-off.

  16. I got all the answers correct but didn't win a book?! :( Humph!!!
    (Flicks hair, stamps feet and stomps off in huff).

    SP. :p
     
  17. AG, comment was tongue in cheek, with the numbers ARRSE has in comparison with RR, its really not a shock that they all went that-a-way. And as a previous winner I can hardly complain.


    Sweetpea, what an absolutely enthralling image that conjures up in my depraved old head
