Public urged not to send Xmas mail to theatre
Generous members of the public who show their support for the Armed Forces by sending welfare parcels to Afghanistan are being urged to stop and think and consider alternative and more effective ways they can back the troops at Christmas time.
For one thing, getting all the goodwill parcels to forward operating bases means that additional resupply flights and convoys have to be laid on, which places Service personnel at additional risk in what is already a difficult and dangerous operating environment.
