From 2009 we’ve set up a new forum area where not only can you add comments as previously, but you can also add photos and chat with friends.
We’ve a wonderful group of people who post on a regular, almost twenty-four hour basis, and these include mums, dads, wives, girlfriends, grans, grandads, children and siblings of Servicemen and women. Together they share their concerns, their worries, their ups and their downs. And there’s many a smile along the way.
But you don’t have to have a loved one in the services to join us, you just need to be a very proud supporter of our brave boys and girls.
To keep the Forum as it is – friendly, non-political and non-controversial, there are some basic rules and important information that you need to be aware of. These are detailed below – please do read them carefully!
When you enter the forum you will need to register in the first instance but this is a very simple procedure. Look forward to seeing you there!
|We welcome posts from families or friends with loved ones in the Armed Forces||Political comments. We do not permit any kind of political comment. There are other sites where these can be posted - ours is NOT the place to do so.|
|We also welcome posts from those who |
don't have family serving, but who simply
want to say hello!
|Arguments. Any thread which, for whatever reason, turns from a discussion into an argument will be removed.|

|Jokes are also okay, and again there is a|
separate category for these but please remember that there are younger family members checking in, so these MUST be restricted to clean ones only!!
|Questions - if you need to know more about sending eblueys, posting parcels or other related subject then hopefully we will be able to help|
