    First book competition of July brings a gem of a book. A very funny and highly amusing story of a doctor working with an air-ambulance helicopter. For your chance to win a copy of this book just go to Survey Monkey and compete the entry form. The book was reviewed on ARRSE about a year ago under it's other title "You Can't Park There!".

    The competition will run until Sunday 14th July.

    OK, a wee hint as only 20% are getting Q3 right. It is not that hard you just have to read the question and then look for the answer - it is not the obvious one!

    It's not like you can't get the answer from Wikipedia

    Well, up to now, 100% seem to have found the correct answer which fits!!!!!! (plus one !) :thumleft:

    That is to Q2 - Q3 is still causing lots of people problems - as I said, it is not the obvious answer I am looking for. All will be explained at the end of the competition, when I expect quite a bit of face/palm action to take place! :biggrin:

    Answers:

    Q1 - Dr Bleetman trained as a military doctor with the: Israeli Defence Force

    Q2 - The callsign for this HEMS unit is: Helimed999

    Q3 - and the one that caused all the problems, this HEMS unit operates in: West Midlands.

    I said Q3 was not the obvious answer and the obvious one was London as the blurb spoke about Bleetman starting off in London. The book about Helimed 999 is set in West Midlands. 43% got this correct so it can't have been that hard! Congratulations to the 43%, shame I could not have given all of you a book.
     
  13. Waaheyyy!! I've finally won something - perhaps this is the start of a lucky streak.

    Thanks A-Y, have sent details. :)
