    Competition now closed. There were 41 entries with 31 correct entries.

    The annswers are:

    a. From which regiment did the Welsh Guards draw most of its personnel when it was formed in 1915? A = The Grenadier Guards

    b. What nationality was the first commanding officer of the Welsh Guards? A = Scottish

    c. What service did Toby Harnden serve in until 1994? A = Royal Navy

    I would remind those that did not get the correct answers to RTFQ!! Especially Q2 where many gave his name but not his nationality, which was the question.

    Winners will be put up here early next week.

    If you have been unlucky and want to buy the book go to Amazon here.

    Look out for the next book competition starting this weekend for a chance to win one of 5 copies of A Spur Called Courage.
