MHM Caption Competition: December 2023 – Winners Announced!

1 min read

We asked you to come up with something appropriately witty for this image from our article on Operation Mincemeat in the December 2023/January 2024 issue of Military History Matters. Here are the winners:

‘It’s going to be piloted by small sheep… it’s a ewe-boat’ – Valérie


‘And you say you got it free in a packet of Kellogg’s Cornflakes?’ – Rob Falconer

‘Now all we need is a bath tub!’ – Terry LLoyd

‘Not only does it slide under the radar Sir but it also slides under a door.’ – Roger Pennyballs

‘I’m sorry chaps, this is just very sub-standard!’ – Geoff Ambers


  1. “This is the maiden voyage of our sub, this exact model sank in my bathtub and wouldn’t come to the surface by itself?”

  2. Well, Stevenson, what do you propose I do with this now that Operation Mincemeat has been carried out? Perhaps Lt. Norris you could stick it . . . . . at the bottom of your fish tank
