Defence IQ Blogging Awards

The Think Defence website has been carrying a piece on nominations for the Defence IQ Military Blog 2012 awards. The article can be found at (text is also below).
Humphrey would strongly encourage all readers to nominate any blog that they feel warrants recognition. There is a plethora of excellent blogs and military matters sites on the internet, and it is a great idea to generate recognition for them. The author would personally support both the Think Defence website, and also the excellent Canadian 3Ds blog ( where Mark Collins does a superb job of summing up Canadian defence developments.
Nominations close on Wed 6 Jun, so move fast!
