    Eric Ravilious was an accomplished artist prior to the start of the Second World War. He was then appointed official War Artist to the Admiralty and the book being offered in this competition is a compilation of his paintings from his appointment as a war artist to his death on active service in Iceland in 1942.

    The book is by James Russell who gives a bit of narrative to each of the pictures in the book, placing them in context. Have a look at the review here.

    The obvious answer is NO, of course not. Nobody can win until 120029MAR (ARRSE time).

    Had you asked "Will I win" then I could have given a more positive answer - positively maybe! :)
