Book Comp - STERLING

Discussion in 'Competitions' started by Auld-Yin, Mar 18, 2013.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

    This competition is for the chance to win one of 5 copies of this book about an ex-SF bod who goes vigilante. A good read and a first class first novel by Robert Cameron.

    The codename of the guy is STERLING which as many here will know is also the name of the Small Metal Gun carried by many cold war warriors; so I have used that as the basis for the questions in this competition. Confused? Good. To enter just go to the entry form on Survey Monkey and complete correctly for your chance to win this book.

    Competition will run until Sunday 31st March.


    The book has been reviewed for ARRSE and that can be found here. It is a good story and worth a punt.

    Just have to remember, that it's the taking part that matters, not the winning.
  4. I've won before, so it is possible. Chin up.

    Although some of the multiple choice answers may not include the correct answers. :cool:

    The multiple choice answers do include the correct answers (i.e. the one that I am going to accept) - whether they contain the right answers may be for another discussion. :winkrazz:

    This comp having closed and winners decided here is the news to either put you out of your misery (sorry Ethel) or celebrate. The winners are

    • rebbonk
    • fang-farrier
    • garret_thief
    • Moosebuster
    • Ancienturion

    I will email each of the winners to let them know and to get them to email me their addresses.

    Answers are:

    Q1 - The Sterling entered British army service in 1953

    Q2 - The Sterling was used in StarWars for the troopers weapon

    Q3 - Over 400,000 sterlings were made. (I used 'circa' to keep the answers clean as 'over' would have included the first option as well.)
