    To commemorate the first National Armed Service Day, Sergeant Darin Birmingham, whose son is a Royal Engineer, has begun fundraising to send care packages to the soldiers of the 2nd Battalion Royal Regiment of Fusiliers, currently based in Musa Qal’eh, Helmand Province.

    While some of the soldiers live in Musa Qal’eh others live in compounds on the outskirts, subsisting on ration packs and limited home comforts.

    Keep up the good work I say!
