Many thanks to Earl Davison, author of the book ‘YOU HAVE NEW MAIL’ for his generous donation of books for the troops. A very funny read, sure to bring a smile to many!
“A recent request from ‘the sandpit’ reached Morpeth ACs Elaine & Glenn Middlemiss ….the long dark nights have descended and to while away the hours, on the few occasions that they can, the troops like to spend the time reading. To save disturbing their mates who are catching up on much-needed sleep, a simple solution is the small lights which attach to the book cover allowing enough light to read by but without flooding the room or bedspaces.
‘Babz Media from Middlesex’ have answered the call and offered an unbelievable discount meaning that we could purchase 1000 of the booklights which are ready for transfer to our troops in ‘theatre’. Our grateful thanks go to Babz Media for their generosity and support of our troops.
Many thanks to Jon Juniper, author of Bullmaster for his kind donation of books for the troops.

Uxbridge Mall – Supports our Armed Forces
Welsh baritone Mark Llewelyn Evans (brother of tenor Wynne; Gio Compario) joins ranks with the Welsh Guards to
launch a fund raising CD to support Welsh troops and their families as they are deployed to Afghanistan again this week.
The CD – a double single – called Tell My Father – with support track ‘Men of Harlech’, the regimental slow march of the guards – has been made with the generous support of many artists and technicians, all of whom gave their time and talents for free, in order to raise funds for The Welsh Guards Afghanistan Appeal Fund.
The hope is to raise £50,000 by Remembrance Sunday this year. As increasing numbers of young soldiers are wounded or die, more &more pressure is put on money available from other sources and so, The Welsh Guards created their own fund to help soldiers and their families who are suffering as a result of the conflict in Afghanistan.
Soldiers like Guardsman Dale Leach who lost a leg and was flown home with a shattered spine, not expected to live. Amazingly he survived but now requires special support and care and has to live with his parents.The fund has helped them to make improvements and adjustments to their home to accommodate Dale’s injury requirements. Parents of soldiers who have lost their lives also find solace in helping the fund like the mother of Lance Corporal Dane Elson, killed in 2009, who helps to manage the fund’s website.
Mark Llewelyn Evans stepped forward after the he was approached by the Welsh Guards who had heard him singing ‘Tell My Father’. A successful soloist, Mark has performed in musicals and opera as well as with Katherine Jenkins for the Welsh Rugby Union. Last year he was asked by Guy Ritchie to appear in the new Sherlock Holmes film A Game of Shadows. The CD also features The Regimental Band of the Welsh Guards, Llantrisant Male Choir & renowned Welsh actor Richard Elfyn.
The Guard’s Colonel and patron, HRH The Prince of Wales speaks in support of the fund –
“It is vital that those Welsh Guardsmen who have given so much to this country and their Regiment know that they and their dependents will be cared for and supported should the need arise. The Welsh Guards Afghanistan Appeal will play a key role in providing this support in the short and the long term, as the wider Regimental family plays its part. I commend the Appeal and ask all those who can to support its admirable work.”
The Guards are also performing in a 3 night concert tour in Wales on the 21st, 22nd and 23rd of March to support the appeal.
The CD, to be launched on the 18th March, is available on iTunes and Amazon at £2.58
