I have won the silver Cross fountain pen for 4388 and a very beautiful pen it is. As I often have recourse to use this site, a thank you to everybody who have helped me. This is my first win in 5 years, so perseverance pays off apparently !

5 years worth of stamps plus you'll probably knacker this pen addressing all the envelopes for the next 5 years -
Only joking, it is a thrill to get anything thats not a bill through the post, let alone a prize. Congrats,All the best, trevor.

ps. straight to Ebay?

Actually Trefor, I collect fountain pens and this one will sit very nicely in my collection ! I did look on ebay to see how much it cost and apparently its the thick end of £310. It writes beautifully as well as looking the biz, so I shall hang on to it, at least until I ever hit hard times, which, who knows could be just around the corner.

Mike.
I remember having my first Parker Pen (thought i was very posh) I loved the smell of the ink - was it called Quink?

Well done Mike.
I have been submitting my entries for 40+ years and no prize ever won by me.
I had started to think that nobody actually did win and the winners names were fictitious.You have restored my faith in the Sunday Times!

Congrats, Mike, on your win. I'm chuffed to bits as well, as I have won some book tokens from this weeks Observer Everyman. I think I have also won some dictionaries as one of the first three winners. As I have sometimes asked for help on this site, many thanks. I can't stop smiling...!
Cheers

Yes, congratulations Mike...a lovely writing instrument indeed.
I've recently written the crossword club inquiring as to why there's a dearth of overseas winners lately. Alas, no reply.
