This prize is open to serving regular and reserve families only. Prize offered subject to availability and must be taken before 31 August 2023 (excluding Bank Holiday weekends). Accommodation is twin or double room occupancy. Travel to the venue is not included. The prize is not transferable and cannot be exchanged for cash.

Never a dull moment

In Life Wasn’t Boring, author Colin Groves relates the life, times, successes, failures and, most importantly, the personal interactions and loves of a professional infantry officer and his family, over more than three decades of service.

Some parts are as serious as can be expected of a military account, while others might surprise you. From action in Aden and Northern Ireland, to faux pas with royalty, and the heavy demands the military makes on family life, this book reveals the human side of being a soldier.

We have five copies in hardback up for grabs, worth £20 each.
