This competition is still running so go to the link in the first post and get your entry in asap. This is a chance to win the book which caused so much embarrassment to the Ministry of Defence through having to buy and trash for first print run!

Have a go and find out what all the fuss was about.

Competition now closed. There were 41 entries with 31 correct entries.

The annswers are:

a. From which regiment did the Welsh Guards draw most of its personnel when it was formed in 1915? A = The Grenadier Guards

b. What nationality was the first commanding officer of the Welsh Guards? A = Scottish

c. What service did Toby Harnden serve in until 1994? A = Royal Navy

I would remind those that did not get the correct answers to RTFQ!! Especially Q2 where many gave his name but not his nationality, which was the question.

Winners will be put up here early next week.

If you have been unlucky and want to buy the book go to Amazon here.

Look out for the next book competition starting this weekend for a chance to win one of 5 copies of A Spur Called Courage.

Easy now I see the answers.

Google wasn't my friend for this one.

Ha, ha. It is good to see that some thought was required! I admit that Google was not particularly friendly in this one, but a bit of perseverance would have seen you through. Better luck next time :)

There's that word again, 'perseverance'.

I think I got the latest one nailed, Alan was in the RLC, right?

I see the ploy here now, you think you win a book, you send your address, and friggin AG is on your doorstep with a suitcase.
Bugger that I'll buy the book.
