Request for Information

Hello everyone,

Ian Griggs at The Independent on Sunday here.

I have posted before on ARRSE and written stories about the people who are serving in Iraq and Afghanistan.

I am putting together an article about letters home from the two fronts and what life is like out there at the moment.

This is an appeal to families who have any letters or emails they would be prepared to let me see a copy of.

In particular, I would like any letters or emails which give insights into how the soldiers feel about being out there for Christmas - what will they miss most, what would their ideal gift be if they were home, but any personal insights would be of great help.

I can either be contacted on 020 7005 2631 or by email at igriggs @

Thanks to anyone who can help.

Ian Griggs
