ABF targeting other halves?

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I serving, so is my wife, my wife has kept her maiden name as she is the last of her family with that name, nowhere on my records does it have me down as being called by my wifes last name, so how come Ive received a letter from the ABF addressed to Mr 'Wifes last name' asking me to give a 'generous gift of £100, or whatever you can afford'?

    Have any other husbands or wives of serving soldiers received one of these letters?

    The ABF do a sterling job but why target the families of serving soldiers for cash?

    I find the whole thing tasteless.
