The Prize: I actually have two prize's and I'll give the winner of the draw the option of which he/she would like.
Wellington's Victories by Matthew Morgan is a book of fascinating trivia about the lives of British troops between 1797 and 1815. It looks at every aspect of the soldier's life, from rates of pay and his life in camp to the small arms and artillery he used in battle.
British Tanks at War is a DVD produced by the Imperial War Museum and contains five films from their collection. These cover tank design, recognition and fighting tactics. Tank Battle shows how an armoured formation goes into battle. Ten Tips for Tackling Tanks on methods of attacking tanks. Spot That Tank is a 1942 AVF recognition film. Tank Patrol is a M.O.I. dramatisation and Birth of a Tank is a 1942 M.O.I film following the construction of a Valentine tank.
The Rules: If you want to be included in the draw its simple enough as there are only two rules:
- You need to be a follower
- Leave a comment at the end of this post.
I'll select a winner from the list next Saturday (the 10th) so if you're not yet a follower now is the time to join up and share in a chance of winning.
Wow, looks like I'm first up. Always love a freebie BL. Good luck all!ReplyDelete
An excellent idea for a contest.ReplyDelete
I was expecting some fiendish puzzle involving clues hidden throughout your previous blog posts.
Count me in for the draw Lee!!ReplyDelete
Keep up the good work.
Woo Hoo!!!! Can I enter or is being a fellow Reject disqualify me??ReplyDelete
Just being you should disqualify you...but no, being as reject doesn't matter. This is open to all.Delete
Very cool! Both of those look really interesting too.ReplyDelete
Cheers Lee, a very kind offer. Perhaps I'll dig something out to offer on my blog!ReplyDelete
Wellington's Army looks like a very interesting book anyway - may have to take a look at some stage. Cheers, DonoghReplyDelete
I'm with Phyllion on this. The question is what?ReplyDelete
Very interesting here.. the one on the Sharpe's Army is especially interesting. Looking forward to this, and also thinking you might be promoting a Pass it Forward mentality here.. could become quite the trend :)ReplyDelete
Very nice idea Lee. I can see this idea taking off.ReplyDelete
Awesome. Yep, going to have to join this band wagon.ReplyDelete
The book looks very interesting as does the video. I want in on this.ReplyDelete
I'll have the Sharpe book Lee, wink...wink!ReplyDelete
Why Lee you old Blog whore you!.... Why didn't I think of this?ReplyDelete
Well I stole the idea from my wife ;-)Delete
I now have to make my own tea
Se gratis sit; illud mehi est. (Bad Latin for "If it's free, it's for me.)ReplyDelete
Shiny! Count me in Biggie!ReplyDelete
Hmmm, I think I need to do a raffle on my blog. Yes, I will do it. Now to find an appropriate price. Check back in a few days.
So I can win a price by leaving a comment that ain't a comment. Nah that is to easy.ReplyDelete
I think the comment must at least make some sense so I can start by asking what does M.O.I. mean?
I can see a trend in this: the person who is the winner will organize the next prize give-away competition.
Ministry of Information - It was a UK government department during WWII and was responsible for publicity and propaganda.Delete
That DVD set would be just the ticket to tide me over until the British tanks are available in World of Tanks... ;)ReplyDelete
Your the winner mate! Send me an emai (BigLeeH at gmail dot com) and let me know where you want me to send your prize. Congratulations!Delete
Count me in. Thanks Lee! (Did your parents name you after a tank, or is it just a happy coincidence?)ReplyDelete
Big Lee, I agree with the sense of community. It is one of the better aspects of the internet that such as we wargamers are but a few clicks away from sharing our experiences and dreams.... And I am dreaming of finishing with painting my armies, atm.ReplyDelete
sure what the heck! I'll throw my hat in the ring.ReplyDelete
Love the idea Big Lee
The sense of community is one of the best things about blogging. My small area may not have people with my same interests but I can find them on the internet. Thanks for doing this.ReplyDelete
Lee it was a pleasure, your being chuffed makes it all the better. I in turn must say thanks for the plug as I have added about 30% to my blog roll.ReplyDelete
Good luck to the guy's, I won't jumpp in on this one, could be an embarisment if I won LOL
Glad you got some benefit in return. The book arrived today BTW and it looks good. As soon as I've finished my current book I'll start on this one.Delete
Interesting idea count me in. Can we have more D&D themed posts please, like you seemed to put up way back. Gives me a chance to reminisce about the good ole' days when I used to indulge in the RPG's.ReplyDelete
Everybody Likes a prize. I guess I should do the same on my blog one day.ReplyDelete
Almost missed this one!! An the chane to get a freebie!! A very genereous offer and surely a good way to strengthen the bounds with the global wargaming communityReplyDelete
Does it help that I know the entire Rejects Dutch Chapter?ReplyDelete
this is a good idea, I wonder how many new followers you'll getReplyDelete
Thanks Lee. I've been a loyal follower of your blog for over a year now, and enjoy your insight & exploits! Cheers!ReplyDelete
Great to follow such an active log, and interesting content too - always a bonus ! Hope you see a good rise in follower numbers. Another Lee.ReplyDelete
I'll never turn down the chance for a freebieReplyDelete
Count me in Lee :)ReplyDelete
Must admit I could be partial to either book on offer :-)ReplyDelete
I`m just commenting to say how good an idea I think this is, but no need to put me in the big hat, I am not worthy and certainly not posting out of the blue to get the price.ReplyDelete
I read your blog `postly`, but not the commenting type (bosses lurking around corners and stuff)
Great idea! - I may borrow for my site.....ReplyDelete
Mmmm, prizes; yes please!ReplyDelete
Wow - great prizes Lee, thanks for the opportunity!ReplyDelete
