Competition - The REAL Great Escape

Discussion in 'Competitions' started by Auld-Yin, Feb 17, 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:

    The Great Escape has raised eyebrows and temperatures for years and Guy Walter has brought out a new book telling the real story of the Great Escape - well as he sees it anyway. This has been 'discussed' at length on ARRSE - see here - but this is your chance to get a copy of the book and make your own mind up (which ever one you want to use!).

    The book has been reviewed by an ARRSER and that can be found here.

    The entry form is on Survey Monkey and as ever it contains extremely simple questions, the answers for which can be found using that internetty thingy. There are five copies on offer.

    Q1 - there were 97 tunnels prior to Tom, Dick & Harry

    Q2 - 76 people made it out of the tunnel

    Q3 - The escape was delayed because the hatch at the end of the tunnel was frozen shut
