Last week, we gave downthetubes readers the chance to win one of three copies of the new Commando Presents: Ramsey’s Raiders (reviewed here), courtesy of DC Thomson. Here are the winners, chosen by the office cat (borrowed from Sparky, of course).
All you needed to do was tell us in what year was Commando first published – which was, of course, 1961, as a quick visit to the official web site would have told you.
The winners of the competition, selected by the office cat, were Neil Kenny from Crewe; Richard Sheaf, from London; and Reuben Willmott, from Ipswich.
Congratulations to the winners and better luck next time to everyone else who entered. Check back for more competitions soon!
• Commando Presents: Ramsey’s Raiders, the Commando Calendar 2019 and other merchandise is available at the DC Thomson webstore
