Trafalgar Day, Part III: The Contest – Book Prizes! :-)

21 October, 2008 at 10:40 pm Leave a comment

I’ve kept the contest simple; you can participate even if you don’t have the foggiest about history. All it will take is a bit of guess work, I’m sure you can manage that.

Question 1: WHAT DO THE ANCESTORS OF THE FOLLOWING THREE PEOPLE HAVE IN COMMON?
Question 2: NAME TWO OF THOSE ANCESTORS (family name is enough)
(Yes, I know, grammatically, it’s not a question, but let’s not be fussy…)

There are many possible answers for question 1, and I’ll accept them all.

I have two book prizes to give away:

1. “The Pursuit of Victory – The Life and Achievement of Horatio Nelson” by Roger Knight
2. “Trafalgar’s Lost Hero – Admiral Lord Collingwood and the Defeat of Napoleon” by Max Adams

All you have to do is to send an email with the two answers to

joyful_molly at yahoo.co.uk

Please include in your mail which book you’d prefer if you win. The winner will be drawn from all correct entries. The contest is open to everybody, no matter where you live, so feel free to spread the word in places where you feel people might be interested. Please allow ten days for delivery, as I live under a rock on the outskirts of nowhere.

The deadline for the contest is Sunday, 26th October 2008, noon GMT.

Have fun! 🙂
